Cheese Horns from Finland

Cheese Horns

3 1/2 dL all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
200 gr grated cheese (I used Edam in Finland, but Cheddar or Mozzarella here in the U.S.)
50 gr butter, softened
200 gr sour cream


1 egg, slightly beaten
150 gr grated cheese
Italian seasoning, garlic powder (optional)

Stir flour, baking powder and salt together. Add cheese. Cut softened butter in with a fork. Stir in sour cream till a soft dough forms. (I usually end up using my hand for this.) Divide dough in half (or thirds if you want smaller horns). Also, stir the ingredients for the filling together in a separate bowl.

Roll out each dough half to a circle. Cut the circle into 8 triangles. Put some cheese filling on each triangle (on the wide end). Roll them closed and bend each one so they look like little croissants. Place on a greased cookie sheet.

Brush with beaten whole egg and sprinkle some poppy seeds on top. Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes.

These are best straight out of the oven. You can reheat them in the oven or the microwave.
