Directions

  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.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This dough is delightful to work with. I kneeded in flour until it was like pizza dough. Very pliable. Don't try making large crescents with this dough, as they won't cook properly on the inside. Kids loved them.

Dough was very easy to work with, but seemed rather dry after baking...

I rhought these were awesome! Even my picky husband was like............YOU made these? I had tried one before it was cooled and thought that they were not cooked in the middle but once they cooled down it was possible to see they were.the bottom cooks faster than the top so put on a higher shelf- will be making more! Thanks
