I got this recipe from a Christmas Cookie book back in 1988. My pastor back in Hawaii LOVES them. They are like mini nut rolls.

Simple to make and delicious. The dough is tender and flaky (like a pie crust). I made 1/3rd of the dough with some mango and peach jam, although I filled it up too much and ended up baking out of it! It also lost its delicate texture--if I fill it with jam again I will add much less. The cinnamon, sugar and nut mixture is fabulous. Thanks for sharing this. My husband said this was great!
