INGREDIENTS for 0 people
  • 1 lb all-purpose flour
  • 5 oz butter
  • ⅛ oz baking powder
  • 3 ½ oz sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
Preparation

Pour the flour onto a cutting board, salt it, and blend in the yeast dissolved in warm water, and knead to obtain a soft dough. Form into a ball, cover with a dish towel and leave to rise in a hot place for about one hour. Then knead for quarter of an hour together with the butter and leave to rest for a further half an hour. Punch down the dough by working a little more, then form some thin sticks, like “grissini”, roll them up by hand and dip in the sugar, cut them to a length of about 4 inches, and form some rings by overlapping the ends. Arrange the “torcetti” on a buttered oven sheet coated in flour, and put in a moderate oven (350°F) for quarter of an hour. Serve dusted to taste with icing sugar.
