    Just made these today for the first time and LOVED them. Hope you enjoy.

    1 cup sour cream
    3 Tablespoons sugar
    1/8 teaspoon soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cake yeast (I used a package)
    1 egg
    2 Tablespoons soft shortening
    3 cups flour (I used about 2 1/2)
    2 Tablespoons butter, softened
    1/3 c brown sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    Heat sour cream to lukewarm. Add sugar, soda, and salt and stir. Add yeast and stir until dissolved. Add egg, shortening and flour. Mix and knead several times till smooth. Roll into a 24 x 6" oblong. Spread softened butter. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle over half the dough. Fold other half over and cut into 1 inch strips. Lightly grease baking sheet. Hold strip at both ends and twist in opposite directions. Place on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart, pressing both ends to baking sheet. Cover and let rise until light, about an hour. Bake in 375 oven for 12 - 15 minutes. Frost with icing or frosting. Enjoy! Makes about 24 twists.

    I have such fond childhood memories of these treats from my dad's mother. She was a super cook/baker. She was a farm wife so had right from the cow cream to sour for these. Her name for them was sour cream twists.. she mostly baked them in wood burning stove oven. FANTASTIC. I didn't know how the recipe would convert to commercial sour cream. I see it does. so I am printing this out. thanks...I will think of Grandma Alma when i make them...

    After they're formed you let them rise on the baking sheet for about an hour but they're worth the wait.

    How do you usually heat the sour cream. In the mircowave or in a saucepan?

    I warmed in microwave but this recipe came from around 1950(one of my mom's cookbooks) and called for saucepan, so whichever you prefer.
