Cooking Recipes Catalogue

These look nice on a plate with other cookies when you're serving afternoon tea or coffee.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • In a large bowl beat butter or margarine until softened. Add 1 cup sugar and beat until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat well.
  • Stir together the flour, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Add flour mixture and sour cream alternately to butter mixture. Beat until well mixed.
  • Cover and chill at least 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a small bowl. Roll dough 1/8 inch thick. Cut into rings with a 2 1/2-inch doughnut cutter.
  • Twist the rings once to form figure eights and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Spinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until done. Remove and cool on a wire rack.
