                         -----PASTRY-----
    1       c            Butter -- softened
    8       oz           Cream Cheese -- softened
      1/4   c            Dairy Sour Cream
    2 1/4   c            All-Purpose Flour -- sifted
      1/2   ts           Salt
                         -----FILLING-----
    2       c            Walnuts -- finely ground
      1/2   c            Sugar
    1       t            Ground Cinnamon
    1                    Egg
    1       t            Orange Rind -- grated
 
   Prepare Pastry: Beat butter and cream cheese in a
   large bowl with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat
   in sour cream. Stir in flour and salt until firm dough
   forms. Add more flour if necessary. Divide dough in
   half. Flatten each half into a 4 square. Wrap in
   plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
   When dough is ready, prepare filling: Combine nuts,
   sugar, cinnamon, egg and orange rind in a small bowl.
   Roll out half of pastry on a floured surface to a 9
   square about 1/4 thick. Spread 3/4 cup of the filling
   evenly over pastry. Roll up jelly-roll style. Wrap in
   foil. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Repeat with
   remaining pastry and filling. Preheat oven to moderate
   (350oF.) Lightly grease 2 large cookie sheets. Cut
   rolls with a serrated knife into 1/4 thick slices.
   Place 1/2 apart on cookie sheets. Reshape into
   rounds, if necessary. Bake in a preheated moderate
   oven (350oF) for 15-20 minutes or until firm and
   golden brown. Cool on cookie sheets 10 minutes. Remove
   cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
