Preparation Time30 min
Chilling Time4 hr
Cooking Time10 min
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter, chilled
- 1/4 cup water
- Cinnamon and sugar mixture
Combine flour and salt in a food processor. Add butter in slices until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough forms a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Roll dough out onto a floured surface as thin as you can get it. Cut off the round edges so you're left with a square.
Cut the dough into thin slices (1/8 - 1/4 inch). Pinch three slices together at one end, using a dab of water to help seal the ends.
Braid the three pieces together until you reach the end of the strips. Using your sealed end as a base, wrap the entire braid around that base. Tuck the braid under the cookie and gently press the cookie flat in your hand.
Repeat until the rest of the dough strips are used up. Arrange cookies on a greased cookie sheet. Brush each cookie with melted butter, then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies just start to brown. If you prefer crunchy cookies, cook for a few minutes longer.
