Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
8 ounces cream cheese -- softened
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup milk
1/2 pound ground walnuts or pecans
Powdered sugar

In a mixer bowl, beat cream cheese and butter with mixer until well combined. Add flour and mix well. Shape into a ball. Cover and chill dough for 1 to 2 hours.
For Filling: In a saucepan, cook sugar and milk over medium heat until milk boils and sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Stir in nuts. Remove from heat; cool until its spreadable.
Meanwhile, on a lightly floure surface, roll out dough to form an 18x12-inch rectangle. Cut lengthwise into two strips. Spread each strip with nut filling. Starting from long side, roll up each strip, jelly-roll style. Cut rolls crosswise in half to fit on baking sheets. Place seam-side down, on ungreased cookie sheets. Cut into generous 1/2-inch thick slices without separating. Bake in a 350 F. oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until done. Let cool slightly. Remove; cool on wire racks.
Dust with powdered sugar. Separate the slices into individual cookies. Cover and refrigerate or freeze.
