Crunchy walnuts carry the tune in these cute, delicious tarts. I enjoy the no-hassle crusts and a delectable walnut filling.


  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts


  1. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy; beat in flour until blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. Shape dough into eight balls; press onto the bottom and up the sides of greased heart-shaped or regular muffin cups. In a small bowl, beat egg. Beat in brown sugar and vanilla until blended. Stir in walnuts. Spoon into cups.
  3. Bake at 325° for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 10 minutes before carefully removing from pan to a wire rack.
