Today, some Yummy Goodness arrived to my door! Our neighbor made us the most wonderful, twisted & not too sugary little rope-looking/twisted pretzel-type cookies!
I've yet to try the following recipe, but am hoping that it's the possible exact match, to what I just experienced!
Basically, if this recipe is in fact, one in the same, then your cookie should end up tasting pretty much just like the ones that come in those mixed Christmas Butter Cookie tins!
* 1 egg
* 1 cup butter or margarine
* 1 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup milk
* 3 1/2 cups flour
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* cinnamon sugar
Cream together egg, butter or margarine, sugar and milk.
Dump flour over egg mixture. Sprinkle cinnamon and baking powder evenly over flour.
With a fork, blend cinnamon and baking powder into flour and then continue blending until all ingredients are combined.
Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Divide dough into four equal parts.
Return three parts to the refrigerator and divide remaining dough into twelve equal parts.
Sprinkle bread board with cinnamon sugar. Roll each piece of dough into a 10-inch strip while coating with cinnamon sugar.
Twist into a pretzel shape and place on cooking sheet. Bake in oven until lightly golden.
Repeat with remaining dough.
