Category:   Cookies
From:   Miners
3/4 c sour cream
1 cake yeast
4 eggs
4 c flour
1/2 lb. butter
3 T sugar
1/2 t salt
4 c ground pecans
2 c sugar
2 t vanilla
Egg yolks
Directions:   Dissolve yeast in half of sour cream. Beat egg yolks. Mix flour, butter, sugar and salt together. Mix with egg yolks and sour cream mixture to create dough. Combine egg whites, ground nuts, sugar, and vanilla to create nut mixture.

Roll-out dough and cut into 2.5 inch squares. The dough needs to be rolled VERY thin! Put a spoonful of nut mixture on each square along the diagonal. Pinch opposite corners together to close. The other corners remain open. Place on Cookie-sheet (covered with parchment paper or greased well) Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees.

Brush top of pastry with egg yolk-water mixture (as many egg yolks as it takes and enough water to make it less yellow and thinner). Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 8 more minutes until done.
