INGREDIENTS

Dough: 2¼ cups unbleached, all-purpose flour ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 tablespoons granulated sugar ½ teaspoon orange zest 1 cup (2 sticks; ½ pound) unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes 4 ounces cream cheese, cold and cut into small cubes ½ cup sour cream Filling: 1 cup toasted pecans ¾ cup chocolate chips ½ cup granulated sugar ¼ cup light brown sugar ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon ½ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg ¼ cup heavy cream ¼ cup cinnamon sugar, for sprinkling

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Insert the small metal chopping blade into the small work bowl and add the pecans. Pulse to roughly chop. Add the chocolate and pulse again to roughly chop. Add the sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg and pulse to combine. Remove workbowl and reserve. Insert the large metal chopping blade into the large work bowl of the Cuisinart® Food Processor. Add the flour, salt, cinnamon, sugar and zest and process for 10 seconds to sift. Add the butter and cream cheese evenly and pulse to combine. Add the sour cream and pulse to combine. The dough should be slightly crumbly; be careful not to overmix. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces, wrap in plastic and chill in the refrigerator. Once dough has chilled for about 30 minutes, roll each piece out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about ¹∕8-inch thick. Brush pastry with cream and then sprinkle with ¼ of the filling. Roll the rectangle up in a jellyroll fashion, brush with cream and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Slightly chill. Repeat with the remaining dough. Cut each roll into 12 pieces approximately ½-inch thick and space evenly on the prepared baking sheets. Bake in oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until just golden brown.
