- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup butter or margarine
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 egg white
- Sugar or cinnamon-sugar mixture
Place flour in a large mixing bowl; cut in butter with a pasty blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in milk and egg yolks with a fork until dough holds together. Divide dough into fourths, and wrap in waxed paper. Chill at least 1 hour.
Roll one portion of dough into a 10 x 6 inch rectangle on a lightly sugared surface; keep remaining dough chilled until ready to use. Brush surface lightly with egg white. Cut into 10 x 1/2 inch strips and shape each like a pretzel on an ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle tops with sugar or cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake at 375° for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Repeat procedure with remaining dough.
Yield: 4 dozen.
