I love the taste of Butterhorn cookies and have recently learned that they’re quite hard to find. I checked our local coffee shops, even Starbucks and Nordstrom cafe with no luck, so on a rainy Monday afternoon I decided to make my own, and I really liked the result (By liked the result I mean I ate 5 in the first 20 minutes of cooling!!)
Preheat oven to 350
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 8 Tbsp Cold Butter (1 stick)
- 5 Tbsp. Cream Cheese (2.5 oz)
- 3/4 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
- One Egg yolk
- 3/4 Cups Brown Sugar
- 1 Tsp. Cinnamon
Mix Brown sugar and cinnamon together and spread about 1/4 cup onto dough being sure to reach almost all the way to the corners. Cut into 12 triangles with a pizza cutter, roll them up and pinch together. Place on a cookie sheet seam side down.
Repeat with all remaining dough and filling.
Bake for 18-20 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.
Enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee!
