  • Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until smooth.
  • Gradually stir in 3 cups of the flour, mixing well. cover and chill until dough is firm enough to handle easily, at least 3 hours or as long as 2 days.
  • For easier handling, chill the dough before you form the ring-shaped cookies.
  • Divide dough in half. Cover and chill 1 portion.
  • Divide other half into 8 equal pieces. With floured fingers, roll each piece on a lightly floured board to make a 10-inch rope.
  • Overlap ends of each rope slightly to form a ring.
  • 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.
  • Remove cookies from pans and let cool completely on racks. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Serve or store airtight up to 10 days.
