Recipe Ingredients:

  • Butter - 1 Cup
  • Flour - 2 Cups
  • Egg Yolks - 2
  • Sour Cream - 1 Cup
  • Nuts
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar - 3 tbsp


Take the Butter and beat it well so that you will get smooth cream. Add egg yolk to the butter and add sour cream & flour. Mix them thoroughly. Keep it in fridge and make the mixture cool for 4-5 hours. Make the dough into parts. Roll each of them into a circle. Cut each the circle in to wedges. Sprinkle sugar on each of them . Can be seasoned with nuts. Need to bake them now. Pre-heat a oven at 400 F and bake for 20 min.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
