Another reason for posting recipes of my most often made cookies this week is that I often get asked by visitors for recipes of food they eat here.
My middle son’s girlfriend remembered having these tarts when she was little. She said she always loved them but hadn’t had them for years and she wanted the recipe for them.
Again, this recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember. They’ve always been one of my favorites.
1 cup unsalted butter, soft
8 oz cream cheese
2 cups flour
Mix together and pat into tart pans.
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
Spoon 1 teaspoon of filling into the tart cups.
Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.
