I have this recipe from my grandma on my mother's side. This was one of the few desserts she made. Oh there was one more we used to love: apple strudels. But the recipe for that i'm saving for another time.

I decided to fill the horns with plum jam i made a while back. And i found a few pieces of Turkish delight around the kitchen so i used them as well.

Ingredients

Instructions

First we have to make the dough:

  • I prepared the leaven by mixing the yeast with a teaspoon of sugar, one tablespoon of milk and one of flour. I blended everything together and i let it rise for a bit.

  • The next step was to make some lemon zest. I didn't use too much, just a teaspoon.

  • It was time to add lemon zest, melted butter and the rest of the milk. I started kneading very well until the dough wasn't sticky anymore. If it's still sticky add more flour.

  • Using a rolling pin a rolled each ball into a thin sheet. I divided each sheet into 8 equal triangles. So from all the ingredients above i made 40 pastry horns.

  • Now on the wide part of the triangle i put a piece of Turkish delight and i rolled it. On another triangle i added plum jam and rolled. I did like this until i finished all the triangles.

Tips:

  1. Make sure you don't put the horns too near one from each other because they rise in the oven.
  2. Don't over fill them, especially with jam because it might leak out from them. I know from experience.
