Crescents made with a cream cheese dough filled with a sweet walnut filling.

Ingredients

  • For the dough:
  • 1 pound butter, softened

  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • powdered sugar for rolling

  • For the filling:
  • 1 pound finely ground walnuts

  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

  • 1-3/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup warm milk

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • Glaze and garnish:
  • 1 large egg, beaten well

  • powdered sugar for garnish

Directions

  • Make the dough:
  • Beat together butter and cream cheese. Stir in flour to make a smooth dough. Divide dough into three equal portions, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • Make the filling:
  • For the filling, mix together walnuts, butter, granulated sugar, milk and vanilla.
  • Assemble the Kiffles:
  • Roll dough out a bit thinner than 1/4-inch on a board sprinkled with powdered sugar (not flour) and cut into 3″ squares. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Place one teaspoon of nut filling on each square and fold over opposite corners to make a triangle. Brush triangles lightly with beaten egg to glaze and bake until golden (about 15 minutes). When cool, dust with additional powdered sugar.

I love these cookies so much! Mine (on convection bake) took 24-26 minutes. Also fyi, I folded them into a crescent shape - I think they look nicer when you can see the filling.

The recipe is too big for a standard mixer. Cut it in half. I made the whole recipe and got 6 dozen cookies. They are delicious but too much work.
