In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream and butter until smooth. Add the sugar and beat until well blended. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well-combined. Stir the flour and nuts into the wet mixture. Shape into a ball, flatten and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 4 hours overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 and cover cookie sheets with parchment paper. Divide the dough in half and return one portion to the refrigerator until ready to use (may be kept refrigerated up to two days).

Personal Notes:
On 11/23/1998, Nell said this was very good. Chewy in center and she used wax paper on cookie sheets. She also said to drop by small balls on cookie sheet. Cook at least 16 to 20 minutes. Remove from pan immediately.
