DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve yeast in milk. Let stand 10 minutes until frothy.
  • Meanwhile, put flour, sugar and salt into a food processor and pulse briefly to combine. Add butter and pulse several times, until mixture resembles peas.
  • Add yeast, sour cream and eggs and process just until mixture forms a ball. Turn out onto plastic wrap, wrap tightly, and refrigerate at least 2 hours, up to overnight.
  • Dust a work surface and rolling pin with flour. Roll dough to 1/4" thickness. Cut 4" circles with floured cookie cutter or rim of glass. Re-roll scraps and cut again.
  • Place about 2 tsp of filling on each circle, and fold to form triangles (there should be a gap exposing the filling). Carefully pinch each corner to seal.
  • Beat egg yolk and water in a small bowl. Arrange on greased cookie sheet or Silpat. Set in a warm place to rise one hour. Brush exposed pastry with egg wash. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 20-30 minutes until edges are golden.
