Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese. Add sugar and vanilla. With electric mixer at medium speed, beat until light and fluffy. In medium sized bowl, combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in chopped pecans. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  2. On four sheets of aluminun foil, shape dough into four 6 inch rolls, 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap each roll tightly in foil and refrigerate over night.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C).
  4. Line cookie sheets with foil. Remove rolls of dough from refrigerator one at a time. Coat each roll with red or green sugar crystals; cut dough into 1/4 inch slices. Place on prepared cookie sheets; top each cookie with a pecan half. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes, or until bottom of cookie is lightly browned when lifted. These look so nice for Christmas.

These cookies are my holiday favorites. I have been baking them at Christmas every year for about ten years now. They have a great flavor and look festive on the cookie tray. Be careful not to overbake them - - very lightly browned is perfect for a slightly chewy, cheesecake taste.

Yummy! Very delicate cheesecakey kind of taste. Just one note - my oven is a bit hotter than most, so the bottoms are a bit black. Starting at 10 minutes, keep y our eye on them to make sure that the cookies don't burn!

I've been looking for a cream cheese based recipes since my sister lost hers. I think this is as good if not better. I loved it with the pecans but might add chopped red and green candied cherries next time for color.
