Yield: 5 dozen


1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
6 eggs, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 cups all-purpose flour
Optional: sanding sugar


With an electric mixer on high speed, beat butter until fluffy, 4 to 5 minutes. Gradually add sugar, beating another 5 minutes. Add 4 eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition; blend in vanilla and baking powder. Gradually mix in flour until a stiff dough forms; roll dough into one-inch balls. Roll each ball into an 8-inch-long rope; fold in half and twist 2 to 3 times. Place on aluminum foil-lined baking sheets; set aside. Beat remaining eggs; brush onto each twist. Sprinkle with sugar, if using. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
