Ingredients for Cream Cheese Pastry Shells

• 1/2 cup butter, softened

• 4 oz. cream cheese, softened

• 1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour


Directions for Filling

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Gradually add flour to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended.

3. Cover and chill dough for 1 hour. Shape dough into twenty-four 1-1/4" balls and place in cups of lightly
greased miniature muffin pans.

4. Press dough on top of cups, forming shells. Cover loosely and chill until ready to use (can be kept overnight, if desired).
