Amazing Sour Cream Twists
Ingredients
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar plus 1/2 teaspoon
  • Nonstick spray oil to grease bowl
  • Powdered sugar for dusting optional
Instructions
  1. Pour flour into a large mixing bowl. Cut butter into the flour using a pastry cutter until the flour resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  2. Pour the packet of dry yeast into a small bowl and cover with 1/2 cup lukewarm water. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of sugar until yeast and sugar are dissolved. Set aside for 10 minutes to activate.
  3. In a separate bowl stir vanilla into the 2 beaten eggs until combined.
  4. Add the eggs, vanilla, and sour cream to the crumbly flour mixture.
  5. Add the yeast water.
  6. Stir all ingredients in the mixing bowl until just combined, switching to kneading when the mixture becomes to thick to stir. Do not overwork the dough; knead just a few times until a rough dough ball forms.
  7. Grease a larger mixing bowl with oil. Punch dough down into the greased bowl, then flip the dough so both sides are lightly oiled.
  8. Cover bowl with a damp cloth and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  9. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  10. In a wide, shallow bowl, mix 2 teaspoons vanilla extract with 1 1/2 cups of sugar.
  11. Dust your rolling surface with 1/2 cup of the vanilla sugar mixture. Take dough out of the refrigerator and place it on the sugared rolling surface.
  12. Roll out the dough into a rough 12 by 16 inch rectangle.
  13. Cut the rectangle lengthwise so there are 3 long, thin rectangles of dough. Cut each rectangle of dough into strips about 1 inch thick (each strip will be about 4 inches long).
  14. Dip each strip into the vanilla sugar so that both sides of the strips are evenly coated in sugar.
  15. Twist the sugar-coated strips two or three times each and pinch at the ends to taper. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  16. Bake in preheated oven for 20-30 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Turn the tray halfway through baking to ensure even browning. The darker you let them brown, the crisper they will be.
  17. Remove from baking sheet immediately and dust with powdered sugar, if desired. The powdered sugar will make them extra sweet.

  18. Place on a wire rack or plate to cool.
