Who would like some "Butter Horns"

Here is a easy to make version of the Hungarian Kipfels using a ground walnut filling.    I have never tried to use Lekvar or Apricot filling in these, but I may try this year.


2 cups flour
1/2 pound margarine or butter

Cut the margarine into the flour.  Add to it, 1 egg yolk and 3/4 cup sour cream.   Blend until smooth.   Wrap the dough in a floured sheet of waxed paper.  Chill at least 4  hours.   Once chilled, divide the dough into 3 equal balls.  Keep the dough chilled so it is easier to work with.    Take one ball out and roll into a large circle.  Sprinkle with nut filling.   Cut into "pie wedges"   Roll up starting with the wide end.   Place on greased cookie sheet.

Bake 350 for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

Nut filling
3/4 cup chopped nuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar.
