Butterhorns

Butterhorns  “Cinnamon,walnuts, and a sour cream dough rolled up to make one a delicious cookie!  If you love pie dough as much as I do, this is for you. Sometimes I may add just a few raisins or dried fruit in the filling. I have tasted butterhorns many different ways, glazed on top, cinnamon sugar on top, or a slightly different dough mixture.  This is a more traditional recipe.   It is nice to know this butterhorn cookie is only 83 calories or 2 Weight Watcher points, if you can eat just one!   Enjoy!”
