Walnut Tarts (Nut Cups)


DOUGH (make double batch)
2 Cups Flour
8 oz Cream Cheese
2 sticks Butter

Mix ingredients together until dough can be handled into a ball. Wrap in saran wrap & refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.

Shape dough into balls & place into each cup of the un-greased (mini muffin) pan. Press dough evenly against bottom & side of each cup.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

FILLING (makes a lot of filling)
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 stick Butter softened
2 Eggs
1 cup Chopped Walnuts
2 tsp. Vanilla

Beat together butter & brown sugar. Then add egg & vanilla until smooth. Stir in walnuts.
Spoon filling into pastry cups, being careful not to overfill. Bake 20 mins (or more) until pastry is golden brown. Store up to 3 days between waxed paper @ room temperature or freeze up to 3 months.
