"Everyone in my family loves this cookie, they're like little pecan pies, and you can make them with pecans instead of walnuts if you choose. You will need a mini muffin pan for this recipe. "

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line mini muffin pans with paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter and flour until a dough forms. Roll into 1 inch balls and press them into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared muffin cups.
  3. In a small bowl, blend together the egg, butter, vanilla and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in walnuts. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cups, but do not fill all the way to the top or the mixture will bubble over.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the crusts are golden.

These have become one of my favorite desserts! Not only do they taste great, they're a breeze to make! The first time I made these I didn't have enough dough to accomodate all of the filling, so now I always make just a little bit more dough. Also, when I don't have mini-muffin liners I use fat-free cooking spray on the bottoms of the muffin tins and they come out excellent. The only bad thing about these walnut cups is that they disappear in a matter of minutes!

I grew up with these walnut cups & every year I make them for Christmas. They're the best! Just dust with confectionary sugar for a holiday delight!! Everyone asks for these every Christmas! They start asking in October. "Can't wait for your walnut cups for Christmas!" Even my old boss called asking for a tin. Said he'd pay me! They're a gift in themselves!!
