    8       oz           Cream Cheese, Softened
      1/2   c            Butter
    2       c            Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

   Mix the cream cheese, butter, and flour together, blending well. Chill to
   firm the dough.  Roll out about 1/3 of the dough, on a floured board, into
   a 12-inch circle.  Brush with 1 Tbls of melted butter. Combine the walnuts,
   sugar and cinnamon, blending well, and sprinkle one-third of the mixture
   onto the dough.  Cut into 12 long triangles and roll up, starting at the
   outside, so that the point of the triangle is on the outside. Repeat with
   the rest of the dough and sugar mixture. Place on ungreased cookie sheets
   and bake in a preheated 350 Degree F. oven for about 10 to 15 minutes,
   until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
