Cinnamony apples are wrapped in a tender pastry to create a crispy delicacy. The flavor reminds me of apple crisp. —Betty Lawton, Pennington, New Jersey

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • 1 large egg, separated
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup finely chopped peeled tart apple
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup raisins, chopped
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolk, sour cream and vanilla; add to crumb mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
Divide dough into thirds. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 10-in. circle. Combine the apple, walnuts, raisins, sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle 1/2 cup over each circle. Cut each circle into 12 wedges.
Roll up each wedge from the wide end and place point side down 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Curve ends to form crescents. Whisk egg white until foamy; brush over crescents.
Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 3 dozen.

"I used cranraisins instead of plain raisins to make it a little fest for Christmas. They were certainly a hit. This was the first time i had made them and will continue to make them. I did cut the sugar in half and they still tasted great."
