DIRECTIONS

  • Beat together cream cheese, butter, sugar, maple syrup, salt and egg yolk in large bowl until smooth.
  • Beat in flour just until blended.
  • Shape into ball and refrigerate about 2 hours.
  • Meanwhile prepare filling: Stir together walnuts, 1/3 c sugar, maple syrup, and cinnamon in medium bowl.
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Grease 2 large baking sheets.
  • Divide chilled dough in half, and roll one half out on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness.
  • Trim dough to form a 10-inch circle.
  • Spread half of walnut mixture evenly over dough.
  • Cut circle into 16 wedges, like you would cut a pizza (A pizza-cutter works great).
  • Starting with wide end, roll up each wedge jelly-roll fashion (Will look like a little crescent roll).
  • Place on baking sheet, point side down.
  • Repeat with remaining half of dough.
  • Lightly beat egg white with water, and brush over cookies.
  • Sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
