Nut Crescents

 

Ingredients:

1 Package Yeast
4 Cups Flour, Unbleached, Unsifted
1 Cup Butter
1 Cup Sour Cream
3 Egg Yolks

Filling:
3 Egg Whites
1 Cup Almonds, Ground
1 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Directions:

Mix yeast, flour, butter, sour cream and egg yolks thoroughly until dough is formed. Cover and let dough rest 1 hour.

For filling: beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold in nuts, sugar, and vanilla. Roll dough 1/8-inch thick.

Cut out rectangles from the dough about 2 X 3-inches. Spread with 1 teaspoon of filling. Roll up jelly roll fashion. Place on greased baking sheets and curve to form crescents. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks and store in airtight tins.
