Prepare pastry: Beat butter and cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixer until creamy. Beat in sour cream. Stir in flour and salt until firm dough forms. Add more flour if necessary. Form into a ball, and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill overnight.
Prepare filling: Combine nuts, sugar, cinnamon, egg, and orange rind in small bowl.
Divide pastry in half; roll out half on floured surface to an 8 inch square about 1/4 inch thick. Spread half of the filling evenly on pastry. Roll up, jelly roll style. Wrap in foil; chill for at least one hour. Repeat to do other half of pastry.
Lightly grease two cookie sheets. Cut the rolls into 1/4-inch slices. Place 1/2 inch apart on cookie sheets; reshape into rounds.
Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees F) for 15 minutes or until firm and golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
