Nut Kolacky

This makes very light, rich pastries. I rolled the dough out on a powdered sugar-dusted surface, so they were fairly sweet. Getting the corners to stay together while baking proved to be something of a problem. I would definitely advise keeping only the dough you are working with out, with the rest in the refrigerator until needed. Thank you for posting this interesting recipe.
