Grandma’s Homemade Pecan-Filled Butterhorns with Sugar Glaze

My faithful readers remember that I had a dinner party with a French Menu this weekend. As part of this menu, I served my Grandma's Butterhorns for dessert. This was in honor of my uncle and he was touched by the gesture and he even said that they were pretty close to his mother's. So, without further ado, may I present:




Grandma’s Homemade Pecan-Filled Butterhorns with Sugar Glaze

Ingredients:
Dough:
4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cake fresh yeast
1-1/4 cups butter
3 egg yolks
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
Powdered sugar for dusting the board
Filling:
3 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1-3/4 cup pecans, finely chopped

Glaze:
1 tbsp milk
2 cups powdered sugar
pink food coloring

Directions:
1. In a large bowl, mix flour and salt. Cut in butter until it looks like cornmeal. In a small bowl, mix egg yolks, sour cream and vanilla. Add to flour mixture. Shape into 5 balls and chill at least an hour but overnight is better. Do Not Freeze This Dough!!

2. For the filling, beat egg whites in a small bowl. Gradually add sugar while constantly beating. Fold in pecans and vanilla.
3. Rollout each ball in powdered sugar. Cut into wedges (about 12 from each ball). Place 1 teaspoon of the filling on each wedge. Roll from the widest end. Bend each roll in the center to form a horn.

4. Bake 15 mintues in a 375 degree oven. Drizzle with glaze while warm.
Makes 5 dozen
