I got this recipe from my sister-in-law last year as she passed these out for Christmas! What a tasty treat! This is a favorite in our household and these are perfect for Christmas or anytime of the year when you get a craving for these (and I guarantee you will). A walnut -pecan, crumbly cookie crust holds red raspberry preserves and a sweet cream cheese filling!
