  1. Combine flour and butter in large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.
  2. In a separate bowl beat egg yolk and sour cream together with spoon. Add to flour mixture. Mix together well. Chill covered in refrigerator at least 4 hours. If you make this in the evening, store overnight.
  3. Stir sugar and cinnamon together to use instead of flour for rolling dough. Sprinkle some over working surface. Roll about 1/4-1/3 of dough into circle about 10 inches in diameter, sprinkling with sugar-cinnamon mixture on both sides as needed both to roll and for taste. Cut in 16 pie shape wedges. Beginning at outer wide edge, roll toward center. Arrange on ungreased baking sheet close together, not touching.
  4. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until browned.

I followed this recipe exactly and they were scrumptious. Make sure you roll the dough evenly and that they are uniform in size. Otherwise they won't bake evenly. Permanent addition to my recipe...

this recipe is one of my most successful tries. the dough turned out perfect like the classic recipe and tastes buttery and delicious.
