Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound butter softened
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 ¼ cups ice water
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups shortening
  • 8 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 7 ounce jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • Mix 1/4 pound of the butter with 3 cups of flour, 2 tablespoons white sugar, egg yolks, and water. (Done like making pie dough with a pastry blender.)
  • Chill for 1 hour then roll out like pie dough on a floured pastry sheet. Spread another 1/4 pound of the butter over the dough. Fold dough together and refrigerate for 1 hour. Repeat this procedure until all the butter is used.
  • Cut dough into fourths. Wrap each quarter in plastic wrap. Chill.
  • Take out one quarter at a time and allow to stand at room temperature long enough that it softens enough that the dough can be rolled.
  • Roll dough out on floured pastry sheet/ board. Cut dough into 1/2-inch-wide X 4-5-inch-long strips. Wrap around clothes pins or dowel pins pinching ends.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Slide off sticks while still very warm and then cool completely.
  • To Make Filling: In a saucepan over medium heat, cook 1 cup milk and 1/2 cup flour until thick stirring constantly. Let cool.
  • Cream together shortening, confectioners' sugar, marshmallow cream, and vanilla. Add cooked mixture to creamed mixture and beat till fluffy. Fill cooled pastry curls with filling.
