Cream Cheese Rolls

These cream cheese rolls are easy to make and require simple ingredients. They make a nice holiday treat.

1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese
2 tsp sugar
2 cups flour

For glaze:
1 egg white
1 tbsp water

For filling:
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
¾ cup light brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Beat the butter, cream cheese, and sugar until soft and fluffy. Sift over the flour and mix until combined. Shape the dough into a ball and divide it in half. Flatten each half, wrap into plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
To make the glaze, beat the egg white with water. To make the filling, combine walnuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease two cookie sheets. Work with one half of the dough at a time. Roll it out thinly making a circle (about 11 inches in diameter). You can use a dinner plate as a guide to trim the edges with a knife.
Brush the surface with the glaze and sprinkle evenly with half the filling.
Cut the circle into 16 segments. Roll each segment starting at its base.
Place the rolls on the cookie sheet and brush with the remaining glaze. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
