Angel horns

Yield: 64 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 cups Sifted all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon Salt
½ cup Butter or margarine plus
1 tablespoon Butter or margarine
1 \N Cake compressed yeast; crumbled (see note)
½ cup Commercial sour crem
4 \N Egg yolks; well beaten
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
\N \N Confectioner's sugar
4 \N Egg whites; room temperature
1 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 cup Finely ground nuts



Cookies: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheet with unsalted shortening. Sift together flour and salt into a large bowl. Add half the butter and cut it in with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture looks like coarse meal. Cut in remaining butter until it looks like large peas. Add crumbled yeast. Add sour cream and mix well. Beat egg yolks until frothy; add vanilla and blend egg mixture into butter mixture. If necessary, knead dough on a lightly floured board until smooth. Divide dough into 8 parts and roll one portion at a time. On a floured board, roll each portion into 8 wedge-shaped pieces. Place 1 teaspoonful of the Nut Filling at the wider edge of each wedge. Roll up each wedge, starting at the wide side, and place on prepared cookie sheet with the point underneath. Bake 20-22 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove cookies to wire cake racks and cool. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar when cooled.

Makes 64 cookies.

NOTE: 1 package active dry yeast dissolved in 2 tablespoons warm water (105-115 degrees) may be substituted for cake yeast.

Nut Filling: In the small bowl of an electric mixer beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and vanilla and beat until stiff peaks form. Blend in ground nuts.
