I was given this recipe by my friend Mary Stubblefield, years ago. Mary was a very sweet woman with a great sense of humor! She said this recipe was from Mrs. Woody Robinson.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine cheese and 1 cup of the softened butter in a large mixer bowl; mix thoroughly.
  2. Add flour gradually, beating until dough forms a ball (add extra flour if dough doesn't form a good ball).
  3. Divide dough into thirds; wrap in wax paper and chill several hours.
  4. Roll each piece into a 9-inch circle on a lightly floured board.
  5. Combine remaining butter, sugar, cinnamon, and pecans; spread each circle of the dough with 1/3 of the sugar mixture.
  6. Cut each circle into 16 pie shaped pieces and roll each up tightly, beginning at the wide end.
  7. Place the pointed end down on a greased cookie sheet.
  8. Beat egg yolks and water together and brush on cookies.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven at 400F about 20 minutes.
