Walnut Horns

Author/Submitted by: Aviva Garrett : Santa Cruz, CA : Excelan, Inc., San Jose, California, USA
Servings: 60
Categories: Cookies / Desserts / Nuts

Ingredients:
2  cups  Flour
1  cup  Butter
8  ounces  Sour cream
1    Egg yolk
1  cup  Brown sugar
1  cup  Walnuts, ground
1/2  teaspoon  Cinnamon, ground
2  tablespoons  Butter, melted

Directions:
1. Cream the flour and butter. Mix in the sour cream and the egg yolk.

2. Divide the dough into four parts, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for several hours.

3. Mix together the brown sugar, walnuts and cinnamon.

4. Roll each dough section on a floured surface until about 1/8 inch thick.

5. Spread about 1/4 of the sugar/walnut/cinnamon mixture over each rolled dough section. Cut the dough into pie-shaped wedges and roll, beginning at the wide end.

6. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter (about 2 T should be enough). Bake for about 20 minutes at 375 degrees F. If you remove the cookies from the oven before they turn brown, the dough will be softer and flakier. If you remove them after they have browned slightly, the dough will be crisper.

7. Remove cookies from cookie sheet before they have cooled completely, or else they stick to the cookie sheet.

* Rolled, walnut-filled cookies -- This recipe has been in the family for a while. These cookies make great Christmas gifts. * During my childhood, these cookies tasted wonderful. However, now they strike me as a bit sweet. You could probably decrease the amount of brown sugar by 1/4 to 1/2 and make up for the loss in volume by increasing the amount of nuts.
