PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease baking sheet.

COMBINE flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and baking soda in large bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

COMBINE egg, milk and vanilla extract in small bowl; mix well. Add to flour mixture; stir with fork just until moistened. Form a ball with dough; divide dough in half. Cover; refrigerate for about 1 hour or until dough becomes easy to handle.

ROLL each half of dough on floured surface to 12 x 6-inch rectangle. Spread each rectangle with half of pastry filling to within 1-inch of edge. Top each filling with 1 cup morsels and half the nuts. Brush edges of each rectangle with water. Bring two long sides of each rectangle together over filling; seal seams and ends of each rectangle. Carefully transfer each rectangle, seam side down, with a pastry cloth or long metal spatula to prepared baking sheet about 3 inches apart.

BAKE 15 to 18 minutes until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut each loaf into eighteen 1/2 inch-thick slices.

These cookies were so easy to make. I wasn't sure how the almond filling would go over, but it was a big hit. This cookie has become a new family favorite!

Perfect with coffee

These cookies were delicious. I served it at a open house and paired it with coffee- what a hit! I also tried it with the swirled morsels- tasted even better!

Made these cookies yesterday. Changed the nuts to walnuts, but kept everything else the same. We made a pot of expresso coffee and enjoyed the flavors of the cookies along with our coffee. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Thanks to Aunt Helen especially!
