  7. Divide other half into 8 equal pieces. With floured fingers, roll each piece on a lightly floured board to make a 10-inch rope.
  8. Overlap ends of each rope slightly to form a ring.
  9. Place rings about 1 inch apart on a greased 14x17 inch baking sheet. Sprinkle light with sugar. Bake in a 300°F oven until golden, 35-40 minutes.
  10. Remove cookies from pans and let cool completely on racks. Repeat with remaining dough.
