ButterHorns with Buttercream icing
Ingredients:
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons active dry yeast (2 packages)
3 eggs at room temperature, beaten
4 1/2 cups flour
In a sauce pan heat milk, shortening, sugar and salt to 120-130F.
In a large mixing bowl place 1 1/2 cup flour and yeast, mix thoroughly. Gradually add warm liquid mixture, and mix at medium speed of mixer for 2 minutes. Add 1 cup flour and eggs, mix at medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in enough flour to make a smooth soft dough.
Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead 8-10 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to grease dough. Cover and let rise away from drafts until double in bulk, about an hour.
Punch dough down. Divide dough into thirds. Roll each third on lightly floured surface to about 9 inches in diameter. Cut each circle into 12-16 wedges. Roll each wedge, starting with wide edge (crescent style). Arrange on greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Cover and let rise until very light, about an hour.
Bake at 450F 15 minutes or until done. When cool, ice with buttercream icing. Roll in nuts if you like. If you are not going to serve them til the next day, place them in plastic containers or plastic bags over night.
Buttercream icing
Ingredients:
6 tablespoons butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 egg yolks, may be omitted
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons cream
In mixing bowl, cream butter, add sugar gradually and continue creaming. Add yolks and vanilla. Add cream and beat until icing becomes thick and fluffy. Ice the cooled butter horns.
This buttercream icing can be used for other desserts that call for icing.

Tip
Bounce sheet in vacuum cleaner.
It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them. It also repels mice.
