Work softened butter and cream cheese in a bowl until blended. Stir in

degrees. Working with a small portion of dough, shape heaping teaspoonfuls
of the dough into 1-inch balls. Keep rest of dough refrigerated. As balls
are shaped drop them into the cups of ungreased 1-3/4 inch muffin tins.
Press dough to cover evenly the bottom and sides of each muffin cup.
Sprinkle about 1 heaping teaspoonful of nuts over bottom of each cup. Beat
eggs in a bowl; gradually add sugar and melted butter. Blend in salt and
vanilla and beat until light and frothy. Spoon 1 tablespoon egg mixture on
top of nuts in each cup. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 250 degrees
and bake 10 minutes longer. Cool cookies in muffin tins and remove
carefully. Repeat with remaining dough, nuts and filling. Makes about 6
dozen cookies.
