Mix 3 ounces of butter with the cream cheese (at room temperature) add flour, divide it into 4 balls of dough and put it in the fridge for 60 minutes. Put the 4 mini-pans in the refrigerator as well.
For the filling:
Mix the sugar, 1 oz. of butter, egg and walnuts. This mixture is to fill the cookies. Keep it in the refrigerator.
After 60 minutes, take the dough, cookie-filling mixture and the muffin pans out of the fridge. Divide one dough ball into 12 parts, place the dough in each cavity in the pan, pressing with your thumb go down and around each cavity to form the shell. When all the muffin pans are ready pre-heat the oven to 350, then with the help of 2 teaspoons, drop ¼ teaspoon of the mixture unto each shell. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Take them out of the oven, let them cool for 10 minutes, then take them out of the pans and let them cool on a cookie sheet. Enjoy!
