Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using two knives or a pastry blender, cut butter into flour and salt until mixture resembles fine crumbs; stir in the sour cream with a fork until incorporated well and you've made a ball of dough.
  2. Divide the resulting pastry dough into 4 portions; wrap each portion in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees.
  4. Mix together the cheese, garlic powder, and dried basil; divide into 4 portions.
  5. Roll each portion of the pastry into a rectangle, about 12x6 inches, on a well-floured board and sprinkle with a portion of the cheese mixture.
  6. Fold ends to meet in center, forming a square; sprinkle with a portion of the cheese mixture.
  7. Fold in the previously-folded edges to meet in the center, sprinkle with a portion of cheese mixture, then fold lengthwise in half (as if you were closing a book).
  8. Flatten the dough lightly, sprinkle with remaining cheese mixture, then fold lengthwise again.
  9. Cut approximately 3/16-inch slices on the folded edge and place slices on an un-greased cookie sheet.
  10. Bring the ends of each slice together to form a fan shape.
  11. Bake until light brown, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  12. Makes about 48 fans, which make nice appetizers.
