These rolls are from Brazil and everyone will enjoy these when you sprinkle them with powdered sugar just as you take them from the oven. Serve with coffee or tea.
2 cups flour
1/2 lb. unsalted butter, unsoftened
1 T. sugar
8 oz. beer
The night before you plan to serve:
Step 1. Cut butter into flour with a pastry blender. Add sugar and beer and mix well.
Step 2. Turn the dough out on a lightly floured board and knead until it is no longer sticky. Cover the dough and refrigerate it overnight.
To bake the twists:
Step 3. Tear off chunks of dough the size of a large walnut. Roll each piece between your palms into a 2-inch cylinder. Twist each cylinder two or three times and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Step 4. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm.
