Cream Cheese Bells

Since I was raised on a dairy farm, the ingredients in this recipe suit me fine! These delicious cookies freeze well, although most of them get gobbled up before I have a chance to get them in the freezer.

    Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min./batch + cooling
  • Makes
    about 4 dozen

Ingredients

  • 7 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 large egg yolks, room temperature
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 2-1/2 cups ground pecans or walnuts
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large egg white, room temperature
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Gradually add the flour and mix well. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from refrigerator about 1 hour before rolling.
  • For filling, in a small bowl, combine the nuts, sugar, butter and egg white; set aside. Divide dough into fourths. On a floured surface, roll out each portion to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-3/4-in. round cookie cutter.
  • Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Place 1 teaspoon filling in center of each circle. Shape into a cone by folding edges of dough to meet over filling. Moisten edges with water and pinch edges together.
  • Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. Sprinkle cooled cookies with confectioners' sugar.
