Sweet rolls filled with honey and nuts

Perfect recipe for a lazy sunday afternoon when your just snoozing about anyway and get the munchies - it takes time to make and that's why it's perfect for a day like this...

I made icing to go along with it - it wasn't that sugary because it contains honey instead of sugar and so the icing really compliments the nutty and delicious flavour. The rolls can be made the day before and reheated before serving. This batch makes up 16 rolls and they are a nice supplement to your morning cup of coffee, afternoon tea or the sunday brunch. You'll need:

25 grams fresh yeast
2 dl milk
2 eggs
1 pinch of salt
½ tablespoon ground coriander
1½ tablespoon honey
8½ dl flour
125 grams butter

100g hazelnuts
2 large tablespoons honey
50 grams butter

Icing: confectioner's sugar and water

Warm up the milk and dissolve the yeast into the milk. Whisk in the eggs and add salt, coriander and honey. Take out another bowl and put in the flour. Cut the butter into smaller pieces and crumble it together with the flour. Gradually add the flour mixture to the milk and knead the dough quickly and let it rest under a cloth for 1 hour. Cut the dough into two pieces. Roll them out into two circles about ½-1 centimetres thick and cut the circles into 8 triangles each.

Put the nuts into a blender and blend them until they have a floury texture. Add honey and butter and give it another spin making it a sweet paste.
Spread out the filling on the dough triangles and roll them up into horns and give the ends a little squeeze so they will stick around the filling.

Let the horns rest on a baking sheet for about 20 minutes and bake them in a preheated oven at 200C (about 400F) for about 15 minutes. Decorate with icing and hazelnut sprinkles before serving.

Bon appetit...
