Recipe by Cerulean
READY IN: 48hrs 12mins


  • Liquids
  • 12
    pint whipping cream
  • 12
  • 1
  • Dry Ingredients
  • 1
    cup sugar
  • 3
    cups flour
  • 3
    teaspoons baking powder
  • 1
    teaspoon baking soda
  • 1
    teaspoon vanilla (she used vanilla) or 1 teaspoon lemon extract (she used vanilla)
  • enough flour, to cover your bread board or counter very well


  • Beat all the liquids together well in a large bowl.
  • Mix the dry ingredients together well in a medium bowl.
  • Add dry ingredients to liquids.
  • Then add either the vanilla or lemon extract.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
  • Set oven to preheat at 400 degrees.
  • The dough is very sticky.
  • Using a tablespoon, scoop out about a'golf ball size' spoonful of dough.
  • Having your counter or bread board covered with flour (it takes quite a bit to avoid having it stick -- ), drop the spoonful onto the flour and roll it enough to get all the outside coated with a thin film of flour.
  • Then roll the dough like a thin (1/2" thick or slightly less) rope.
  • Putting the rope on your pre-greased cookie sheet, twist the ends over one another one time.
  • Bring the loop at the top down over the twisted ends.
  • That should make the shape you want (a figure eight shape).
  • Put about 12 on each cookie sheet, and begin baking.
  • Put the first cookie sheet on the lower (not at the lowest level, though) rack in your oven.
  • Bake for 6 minutes (be exact -- she set a timer!) then transfer that sheet to the top rack of your oven (if you have an electric oven with the broiler on top, don't put them very close to the heat).
  • Bake another 6 minutes (exact -- ) and take them out.
  • They should be lightly browned on both the top and the bottom, if you have the correct temperature in your oven.
