Instructions Checklist
  • In bowl, stir 1 tablespoon honey into warm water. Sprinkle with yeast. Let stand until foamy, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir to dissolve.

  • In large bowl, beat together butter, sour cream, egg yolk, vanilla and remaining honey until blended. Add 1 cup flour, the salt and cinnamon; on low speed, beat until smooth. Add yeast mixture, second cup flour; beat 2 minutes. Add enough of remaining flour to form soft dough.

With pizza cutter, cut dough into quarters. Cut each crosswise into six 5-inch-long strips. Twist 2 strips together; place on prepared baking sheets. Repeat with remaining quarters and second half of dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
