Sour Cream Torte

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
This torte is legendary at work; one time it caused a near riot and disappeared in 5 minutes! It's very unusual and tastes like those small butter/nut cookies rolled in powdered sugar. It's not hard to make, it just takes some time, but I guarantee it's worth it!

I saw these being made on a cooking show on PBS they are very tender and buttery. You can freeze in muffin tins and pop in oven when needed.
