- Punch dough down; divide into thirds. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 12-in. circle. Melt 3 tablespoons butter; brush 1 tablespoon over each circle. In a bowl, combine the sugar, almonds, egg, extract, lemon peel and remaining butter; mix well. Spread a third over each circle of dough.

Reviews forAlmond Butterhorns
"This dough is very sticky. To use enough flour to make them easy to handle, I felt like they were heavy. Mine barely held their shape. They almost flattened out."
"very light and wonderful rolls."
