Ladder Coffee Cakes
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup canned cherry pie filling
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 tsp. milk
In a large mixer bowl, beat butter on high speed of electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add sour cream; beat until fluffy. Add flour and mix well. Cover and chill dough about 1 hour or until firm enough to handle.
Divide the dough in half. Working with half of the dough at a time, roll to a 10 x 8 inch rectangle. Place rectangle on a greased baking sheet. Spread half of the pie filling lengthwise down the center third of the rectangle. If desired, sprinkle half of the chopped walnuts over the pie filling. Make cuts 2 ½ inches deep at 1 inch intervals along both long sides. Fold strips over filling, pinching into narrow points at the center. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until golden. Remove to a wire rack. Sprinkle with additional chopped nuts. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the powdered sugar and the milk. Drizzle over all. Cut into slices and serve.
