My twin sister and I (we're 18) love to bake together, and this was one of the first yeast breads we tried. Any day becomes a special occasion when these rich buttery twists are on the menu! But plan ahead...the dough needs to rise overnight. -Charys Rockey, Rochelle, Texas

  • 1-1/2 cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 4 egg yolks, lightly beaten

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 187 calories, 8 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 52 mg cholesterol, 256 mg sodium, 25 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in yeast mixture and egg yolks; stir just until dough clings together. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into thirds. Roll each portion into a 9-in. x 7-in. rectangle. Cut into 7-in. x 1-in. strips. Pinch ends together, forming a circle; twist once to form a figure eight.
  3. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 20 minutes.
  4. Brush with egg whites. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a 1/2-in.-deep indentation in the center of each twist; fill with jam.
  5. Bake at 350° for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Combine the confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle over warm rolls. Yield: 27 rolls.
