My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Fudge-Filled Dessert Strips

This really isn't a cookie, but it looks like a filled cookie, sort of. Maybe it's a pastry. These are very easy and absolutely delicious. I will find any excuse, at any time of the year to make these.

Lots of butter, cream cheese and walnuts, how bad could they be! If it doesn't have at least a cup of butter it's not worth making.

Fudge-Filled Dessert Strips
36 pieces
print recipe

1 cup butter, softened
1 package (8-ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups (12-ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 can (14-ounces) sweetened condensed milk
2 cups chopped walnuts
Confectioners' sugar, optional

In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until fluffy, Gradually add the flour and mix well.

Turn onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth, about 3 minutes. Divide dough into fourths; cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until easy to handle.

In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and milk; stir until smooth. Stir in Walnuts. Cool to room temperature.

Roll each portion of dough onto an ungreased baked sheet into an 11-inch x 6 1/2-inch rectangle. Spread 3/4 cup chocolate filling down the center of each rectangle. Fold long sides to the center; press to seal all edges. Turn over so the seam sides are down.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 27-32 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Cut into 1/2-inch slices. Dust with confectioners' sugar if you like.
