Butterhorns & Stuff

Even though Brian did not eat all his supper last night, I'm giving you the Old World Butterhorn recipe anyway because I'm just that cool. Hi, Bri-Bri! Does anybody call you that?
Old World Butterhorns

4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 oz yeast cake (or 1 packet dry)
1 1/2 cups butter (3 sticks)
3 large egg yolks (reserve whites for filling)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
Powdered sugar
1 cup sugar
3 egg whites
1 cup ground pecans
1 tsp vanilla
Combine flour, salt, and yeast. Cut in butter with a fork or pastry blender. Combine egg yolks, sour cream, and vanilla and add to flour mixture. Mix and divide dough into 8 balls. Roll each ball out into a flat circle using a rolling pin and small amount of powdered sugar to prevent sticking.
Make filling: Beat egg whites until very stiff and gradually add sugar; fold in pecans.

Spread filling equally onto each circle and cut each circle into six triangle slices like a pizza. Roll up each triangle and slightly bend both ends down making a crescent shape. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

This is what they should look like before baking only messier:

I'm telling you, you will love these!

Barnaby didn't get home until 2 a.m. They finally got the idiot guy the third time they bombed the house with tear gas. Nobody got shot, but only because they missed.

I'm not sure what's on the agenda today. I'm all caught up on work, so maybe I'll get all wild and go browse through Big Lots and the Dollar Store. It's supposed to be 89 degrees here today. Can you believe that? It's too early in the year for the hotness. Go away hotness!
