Aunt Mamie’s

Aunt Mamie’s was passed down from my great-grandmother to my grandmother, and now to me. This recipe is over 100 years old and has been a family favorite for generations. The simple ingredients and ease of preparation make this dish a perfect weeknight meal. Whether you’re feeding a large family or just yourself, Aunt Mamie’s will leave you satisfied.


  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 pound ground walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar


First, beat together the cream cheese and margarine until well blended. Then add the flour and mix well. Next, shape the dough into a ball, cover it, and chill it for 2 hours.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat, cook the sugar and milk stirring occasionally until the milk boils and the sugar is dissolved. Add the ground nuts to this mixture and remove from heat once cooled to spreading consistency.

Then roll out the chilled dough on a lightly floured surface to form a rectangle that is about 18×12 inches large. Cut this rectangle in half lengthwise before spreading each piece with either the milk/nut filling or variations A or B fillings noted above.

Finally, roll up each piece like a jelly roll starting from the long side before cutting each roll in half vertically. Place these halves seam side down onto ungreased cookie sheets (with two rolls per baking sheet) leaving room between each cookie slice so they don’t touch while baking.

These cookies should be cut almost all of the way through before being baked at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes or until done according to your preference. Remove them from their respective cookie sheets to cool on racks before sprinkle confectioners’ sugar on top and cutting
