Step into the kitchen and create a masterpiece. A visually appealing dessert that tastes as good as it looks if not better. A homemade dough that is reminiscent of a puff pastry is filled with preserves, chopped pecans, raisins, coconut sugar and cinnamon. It is rolled up like a little "cookie crossoint" if you will, coated with a touch more cinnamon sugar and popped in the oven. They come out golden, after cooling they crisp up and make the most heavenly treat.
Growing up Gerald would eat these around the holidays and described them as nut horns, the description was so intriguing I had to look further. I'm so thankful he asked! Gerald recently had a birthday and we certainly indulged on these on his special day. He plays such a big role in my life and I love him dearly, Happy Birthday Gerald!
These are indulgent I advise stopping at 1-2 if you can. We had a bit much the first encounter and they had their toll!! So that is my warning, but other than that, they're a fantastic dessert and very nice treat to have.
