Almond Filled Butterhorns

These treats are some of my favorite baked goods. Nancy usually makes them when she catered the banks, but I think that the servers ate as many as the customers!

  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 cup butter

Combine yeast and 1/4 cup sugar in warm milk. Gradually add butter and eggs. Combine flour salt and remaining sugar. Add to milk and eggs mixture. Mix well and refrigerate overnight.

Ingredients for Filling

  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1 egg slightly beaten

Directions for Filling and Assembly

Divide dough in thirds and roll into circles, about 1/4” thick. Spread each with 1 tablespoon melted butter. In a bowl, mix 2 tablespoons butter, sugar, almonds, vanilla, and egg. Mix well and spread on circles. Let rise 30 minutes. Cut circles into triangles and roll like crescent rolls. Bake at 350 until lightly browned. Glaze with powdered sugar, vanilla and butter mixed.
