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)
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.
