Tea Time Tasties

I make these for special parties and on the holidays. Everyone really enjoys them. They are one of my families favorites also.

Original recipe makes 2 dozen


1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/3 cups chopped walnuts
1 egg
1 tablespoon butter


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Blend softened cream cheese and 1/2 cup butter or margarine. Stir in 1 cup flour and mix well.
  3. Shape 2 dozen-1 inch balls. Place in tiny ungreased muffin pans and press onto the bottom and sides of tins.
  4. To Make Filling: Beat egg, sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, salt, vanilla and nuts until smooth. Fill pastry cups and bake until filling is set, about 25 minutes.
