Cream Cheese Finger Cookies

Cream Cheese Finger Cookies Recipe
 Made with cream cheese and butter, they're very rich...and the pecans add wonderful flavor. They're great with hot cup of coffee or a tall glass of milk.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Dash salt
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • In a small bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, sugar and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in pecans (dough will be crumbly).
  • Shape tablespoonfuls into 2-in. logs. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Carefully roll warm cookies in confectioners' sugar. Cool on wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.
