  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup plum jam, divided
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 8 teaspoons finely chopped walnuts or pecans, divided
  • 1-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Place flour in a large bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in sour cream. Wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until easy to handle.
  2. Divide dough into four portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion into a 12x6-in. rectangle. (Keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to use.) Spread 3 tablespoons jam lengthwise down the center. Fold in sides of pastry to meet in the center; pinch seam to seal. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon each nuts and orange zest. Repeat. Place on two ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned. In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and milk; drizzle over warm pastries. Combine the sugar, cinnamon and remaining nuts; sprinkle over warm pastries.
