Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5. Grease a mini muffin tin or line with paper cases.
In a medium bowl, stir together the soft cheese, 110g butter and flour until a dough forms. Roll into 2.5cm balls and press them into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared cases.
In a small bowl, blend together the egg, butter, vanilla and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in walnuts. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases, but do not fill all the way to the top or the mixture will bubble over.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the pastry is golden.
This recipe was really delicious. I brought them along to a wine tasting party and they were a hit. After filling up my 24 mini muffin tins, I had enough pastry and filling left over to put in the fridge and make another 9. The pastry was a bit easier to manipulate into the mini muffin tins after it had been chilled. - 01 Jun 2010
