    28 rolls

Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup warm heavy whipping cream (110° to 115°)
  • 3 egg yolks, beaten
  • ALMOND FILLING:
  • 3/4 cup almond cake and pastry filling
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • EGG WASH:
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 cup sugar and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the remaining sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add cream and egg yolks; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients; mix well. Do not knead. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • For filling, in a small bowl, beat almond paste and butter until smooth. Punch dough down; turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide in half. Roll each portion into a 12-in. square. Spread filling to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style; pinch seams to seal. Cut each into 14 rolls. Place rolls, cut-side up, on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes (dough will not double).
  • Brush with egg; sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

    These are really good. In German they are known as Schneken ( snails). My aunt used this very same recipe ( verbatim except for leaving some techique details out ) from the old My Great Recipes Packet 7 card 68. Almond Filled Yeast Rolls. Yummmmmmm.
