Walnut Rolls Recipe

We were given at Christmas a tin of delicious somethings... I don't know what they are called but they were small squares of pie crust that was rolled around a filling which had walnuts, I think brown sugar, cinnamon and maybe flour. Does anyone know what they were and do you have a recipe? I would appreciate it.

Not sure if this is what you were thinking of but the first thing that came to mind was Rugelach. They sell it a lot at the Holiday season. But they are actually triangular pieces of dough rolled up. Very tasty. Many varieties but I think they usually are made with cream cheese in the dough.

Many recipes here (google search):

I give out similar cookies at christmas:

Nut filled Horns

2 c. butter softned

2 8oz pks cream cheese softned

2 egg yolks

4 1/2 c. All purpose Flour

2 tsp. Baking Powder


4 c. Finley Chopped Walnuts

1 1/2 c. sugar

6 tbs. evaporated milk

1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1. In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese. Add egg yolks. Combine Flour and Baking Powder, in separate bowl, gradually add to creamed mixure--Cover and Chill Over night.

2. In large Mixing bowl combined filling ingredients ( mixture will be thick). Divide dough into fourths (dough will be sticky). On a well sugared surface, roll out each portion into 12 in. x 10 in rectangle. Cut into 2 in. squares. Place about 1 tsp. filling in the center of each square. Fold over two opposite corners, seal tightly. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-18 min or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.


Hope that helps, if they're not the same, they're still very tasty.

Your description sounds a lot like baklava, a Greek holiday treat. Yummy! Does it taste like it has honey in it instead of sugar?

Sounds like rugelach to me, too. There are many recipes. Many use preserves in the middle instead of nuts and cinnamon, too.

Why not take the guessing out of it and simply ask the one who gave it for the recipe? I'd like it too. God bless you. : )

This one actually sounded like Kefle Cookies to me. They are also extremely good and tender...as long as you don't overmix the dough. We did that one year and they were as tasty as shoe leather.


1 8 oz pkg cream cheese

1/2 lb butter

2 1/2 c flour

1 egg yolk


1/2 lb English walnuts, ground fine

1/2 c sugar

2 Tbs. milk

1/4 tsp lemon juice

gratedd rind of 1/4 lemon

1 tsp cinnamon

Mix cheese and butter tlll smooth-add egg yolk. Roll our 1/4 of the dough into a floured board VERY thin. Cut into 2 1/2 in squares or use biscuit cutter. Place 1/2 tsp filling in center and pinch edges closed. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 for 20 mins. Brush with egg white before baking. Repeat with remaining dough, 1/4 at a time, keeping unused dough in the fridge until time to roll.
