How to Make Butterhorns
- Set yeast in warm water and sugar, set aside for 10 minutes. Scald milk, cool and add egg. Add yeast to egg and milk and mix. Make a well in the pastry mixture, add the liquid all at once and mix thoroughly. Cover tightly in bowl with waxed paper and damp cloth and refrigerate at least 2 hours, no longer than 48 hrs.
- Remove from fridge, flour board well and roll out paste to rectangle. Cut into 1" wide x 12" long strips (I use a pizza cutter). Twist and make into a circular shape. Place on greased or parchment papered cookie sheet and let rise 1 1/2 hours. Bake 12-15 minutes at 400F. Frost and sprinkle with your choice of nuts or coconut. toasted coconut is my personal favorite.
