I believe this recipe came from a very, very old 5-Roses Cookbook, but I can't be sure. They are very nice and don't usually last long. It would be a great recipe to have the little ones help out with.
- 3 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 8 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1 1⁄4 cups milk
- 1 egg yolk, slightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon milk
- poppy seed
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Stir flour, baking powder and salt together.
- Cut in butter or margarine until mixture is crumbly.
- Add milk gradually, tossing with a fork, until mixture holds together and comes away from the side of the bowl.
- Turn out on a lightly floured board and knead for a few minutes (10-12 times).
- Break dough into 32 equal pieces and roll each piece into a round pencil-like strip about 6" long.
- Tie each strip in a loose knot and place on a greased baking sheet.
- Mix slightly beaten egg yolk and milk together.
- Brush the tops of the knots with the egg-milk mixture and sprinkle with poppy seeds.
- Bake about 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
