I started making these in the early 80's. I bought my first miniature muffin tin so that I could make these. I took these to many potlucks, baby showers, bridal showers, graduations parties through the years. I think I found this recipe in a small Pillsbury grocery store cookbook. This recipe doubles very well.


3 oz Cream Cheese, softened
½ cup Butter, softened
1 cup Flour
1 tbsp Butter, softened
¾ cup Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp Vanilla
cup Nuts, chopped
6 Maraschino Cherries, if desired
