  • Mix the cream cheese and the butter at high speed with a paddle attachment, until light and fluffy. Add 1/4 cup granulated sugar, the salt and vanilla extract. Lower the speed and add the flour, mixing until just combined.
  • Roll the dough into a ball on a well floured surface, and cut into 4 quarters. Wrap each piece in plastic, and place in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Prepare the filling by combining 6 tablespoons of granulated sugar, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and the walnuts into a small bowl.
  • On a well-floured board, roll each dough quarter into a 9-inch circle. Spread the dough with 2 tablespoons strawberry jam and sprinkle 1/2 cup of the filling on top. Press the filling lightly into the dough. Roll the dough forward with the long side facing you, then slice into 1/2 inch sections, with a serrated knife, being careful to not press the dough down too much.
  • Place the cookies on a pan sheet lined with parchment paper and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Brush each cookie with the egg wash. Combine the remaining 3 tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon and sprinkle on the cookie tops. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly browned. Cool on a rack.



You can even store the leftovers in an air-tight container for up to 3 days. You can also heat them up and enjoy the melted chocolate.
