Serves:

Makes 32 cookies

Ingredients

8 oz
butter, room temperature
8 oz
cream cheese
2 tsp
caster sugar
8 oz
all purpose flour
1 large
egg white beaten with 1 t. water, for glazing
caster sugar, for sprinkling

FOR THE FILLING:

4 oz
finely chopped walnuts
4 oz
light brown sugar
1 tsp
ground cinnamon

Directions Step-By-Step

1
With an electric mixer, cream the butter, cream cheese and 2 tsp sugar until soft. Sift the flour over the cream cheese mixture and mix until combined. Gather into a ball and divide in half. Flatten each half, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
2
Make the Filling: In a small bowl, mix together the chopped walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
3
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
4
Working with one half of the dough at a time, roll it out thinly into a circle about 11 inches in diameter. Trim the edges with a knife, using a dinner plate as a guide. Brush the surface with the egg white glaze and then sprinkle evenly with half of the filling.
5
Cut the circle into quarters, and each quarter into 4 sections, to form 16 triangles. Starting from the base of the triangles, roll up to form spirals.
6
Place the spirals on the cookie sheets and brush with the remaining glaze. Sprinkle with caster sugar. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes, or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
