Hi, I live in Central Pennsylvania but I am originally from Texas.  Here is the recipe I am looking for.  These are sold here at our local farmer's market.  Benekies

It has a pecanish brown sugar filling... not sure exactly what all goes into it
looks like a rolled dough cookie with the filling and shaped into a crescent. 

They are sold like I said at the farmer's market but they are pretty expensive.  AFter asking around I have found out it is Hungarian but I have searched and so far no luck.  Pretty sure that Benekies is the local name for it and not the proper name.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you,

I honestly have no idea what you are talking about, but I did find something called butter horns or rugelach. You might want to look into it. Just thought I'd try to help.

I think what you are looking for is called kifli.

Check out this website and see if that's what you want.  Then you can look up the recipe for kifli.

I make benekies.  The receipe I use calls for a 5 cent yeast cake....they cost alot more today.
5 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 yeast cake
4 eggs
1 cup shortening
1'2 cup milk
Mix all but the milk of the above ingredients together and knead.Gradually add the milk until you can handle the dough.  Roll dough out on  powdered sugar, cut into squares. Add about a spoonful of the nut mixture filling, roll up into crescent shape. Bake at 375 until brown.
Nut filling
1 cup english walnuts ground coarse
2 cups powdered sugar
enough milk to make a paste
