DIRECTIONS

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