If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  1. Make sweet dough recipe (found here)
  2. Roll dough to 12-inches by 12-inches
  3. Brush dough with butter
  4. Mix sugar and cinnamon in separate bowl
  5. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of the cinnamon sugar mixture on center 1/3 of dough
  6. Fold 1/3 dough over center 1/3
  7. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of the cinnamon sugar mixture
  8. Fold remaining 1/3 over 2 layers
  9. Cut in 1-inch strips
  10. Hold end of each strip and twist in opposite directions
  11. Place twists on baking sheet 1.5 inches apart from one another
  12. Sprinkle top of twists with remaining cinnamon sugar mixture
  13. Cover and let rise for about 1 hour (if using the quick dough variation let rise for 30 minutes)
