Cream Cheese Walnut Refrigerator Cookies

This recipe from Martha Stewart produces a slice-and-bake cookie with a tight crumb that immediately falls apart into deliciousness in your mouth. Try it! I also think this would work well with other nuts, like pecans. A great cookie recipe for the holiday season. You can make the dough ahead of time and freeze it until you want to use it. Enjoy!

ingredients

directions

  • Whisk together flour and salt in a large bowl; set aside.
  • Mix butter and cream cheese on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Mix in sugar and vanilla. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture, and mix until just combined (do not overmix). Mix in toasted walnuts.
  • Transfer dough to a work surface. Divide in half; shape each half into an 8 1/2-inch long log about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap each log in parchment paper; freeze until firm, about 30 minutes or up to 2 weeks.
  • Preheat oven to 350 with racks in upper and lower thirds. Unwrap 1 log, and roll in 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, coating completely. Cut into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Space 1 inch apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake cookies, rotating halfway through, until golden around edges, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks. Repeat with remaining log and remaining 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.
