Hungarian Nut Foldovers
For the dough:
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 pound butter
2 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese
powdered sugar for rolling
For the filling:
1 pound finely ground walnuts
1 tablespoon melted butter
1-3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup warm milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Mix together ingredients for the dough until smooth. Divide dough into three equal portions, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Roll dough out on powdered sugar (not flour) and cut into 3" squares.
For the filling, mix together walnuts, butter, granulated sugar, milk and vanilla.
Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Place one teaspoon of nut filling on each square and fold over opposite corners to make a triangle. Brush triangles with beaten egg and bake until golden. When cool, dust with additional powdered sugar.
