      1/2   C            Butter or margarine
    3       Oz           Cream cheese
    1 1/2   C            C and H Powdered Sugar
    4                    Eggs
    3 1/4   C            All-purpose flour

   Cream together butter and cream cheese.  Add sugar and beat until well
   blended.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
   (Mixture might look curdled.)  Add remaining ingredients; mix well.  Chill
   dough 3 hours.  Divide soft dough in half.  On a 17 by 14 inch cookie
   sheet, form each half of dough into a roll 1-1/2 inches wide and the
   length of the cookie sheet.  Bake in 350 degree oven 30 to 35 minutes.
   Remove from oven and cut rolls into 3/4 inch slices.  Place on cookie
   sheets, cut side down, return to oven and bake 10 minutes or until toasted
   and crisp.  Makes about 48 slices.
