Beat together in a large bowl: butter, cream cheese until creamy. Add sugar, vanilla. Beat again. Sift dry ingredients, and add to cream mixture. Mix well. Stir in oat, nuts; mix well. Chill for 3 hours or overnight. (Firmer dough is easier to work with.) Divide into 1" balls, then flatten with hands to thickness desired. Shape into hearts (pinch top, bottom). (Use saran wrap for rolling out. Use very little flour to help avoid sticking. Flatten dough as thin as possible.) Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Cool.
