Afghan Creme Roll – cream rolls

  • Author: MirriamSeddiq


These light, crisp, cream-filled pastry horns are perfectly paired with Afghan chai or an other not-sweet tea. Or, for that matter, a nice cup of black coffee! Buttering between the layers makes for a crispy flaky dessert that is worth dreaming about. Here is what you need.




3 1/2 C Flour

4 Eggs

1/4 C Sugar

4 tbs oil

pinch salt

1/2 C water

melted butter


heavy cream

2 tablespoons powdered sugar

1 teaspoon cardamom

crushed pistachios

2 teaspoon vanilla extract 


1. Crack four eggs. Whisk.

2. Add oil.

3. Add granulated sugar and salt.

4. Mix all together.

5. Stir flour in.

6. Slowly mix water in. Watch video. But if flour is sticky, add flour a tablespoon at a time until good texture.

7. Knead dough. Put in cling wrap and let rest for 20 minutes.

8.  Preheat oven to 350 F.

9. Butter your creme roll molds.

10. Take rested dough, I cut it in half, and do two batches.

11. Roll into a rectangle.

12. Take melted butter and cover rectangle of dough. Fold over as shown in video. (creates layers)

13. Set in fridge and let rest 20 more minutes.

14. Take out, and roll into rectangle, again.

15. Take cookie cutter and cut into 1 inch strips. Take buttered mold and wrap around mold, overlapping. (see video)

16. Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Could be 25. Flip half-way through.

17. Make filling by putting heavy cream, powdered sugar (can sift), into bowl. I start with 2 tablespoons, 1 tsp cardamom, 2 tsp vanilla extract. Mix with stand mixer until creamed.

18. Prepare a plate with powdered sugar. You are going to roll the cream rolls liberally in powdered sugar. Can also cover in pistachios.

19. Take pastry bag, fill with cream, and fill cream rolls.
