Sour Cream Pastries

Sour Cream Pastries ~ They are a family favorite!
Start with 2 cups of flour and 1 cup of butter (chilled, cut into pieces):
Using pastry cutter or 2 knives, cut butter into flour
until mixture resembles fine crumbs:

Add 1 cup of sour cream. Mix with a fork:

After mixing well, press dough together and chill for at least four hours:

(Preheat oven to 400 degrees.)
After chilling, divide dough into 2 parts. Take first half and roll into a 10 inch circle. (Tip: use a lot of flour on counter or board before rolling out dough.) Spread with cinnamon sugar and finely chopped nuts. Cut into 16 wedges:

Roll each wedge from outside in, creating a crescent shape. Place on baking sheet.
Repeat with remaining half of dough:
Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
Prepare Glaze:
Mix together 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1-2 Tablespoons of water (not too much!), and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.
Place pastries on a cooling rack over waxed paper.
Drizzle glaze over warm pastries.

oooh. Those look really yummy! A while back you posted the recipe for some kind of cinnamon/bundt bread thing. (sorry I forgot the name) Where do you get the rolls for that?

Country Girl~ Hope you like them!

Carole~ I bought them in the freezer section at the grocery store. I think they might have been by the desserts. Usually there are a few different frozen bread dough items. You should be able to find a bag of frozen, unbaked dinner rolls. I keep them on hand just for the cinnamon buns. Yum!

It seems like you could make your own white bread dough, form little ball shapes, and freeze them. I'm just not that industrious right now. :)
