Preheat the oven at 350.

4 cups flour

1 cup sugar

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1-1/2 bar of soft butter or margarine

8 heaping teaspoons of sour cream (or ½ cup sour cream)

Mix with your hands until it is all as even as you can get it.

Then add 5 teaspoons of milk and mix with your hands.

Add 2 more and mix with your hands.

Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and mix with your hands.

Add 4 more teaspoons of milk and mix with your hands.

Only add as much milk as you need until it all sticks together.

Knead the dough ball until it is well mixed.

Roll a piece between your hands to make it long.

Put it in a pretzel shape and then pat it flat (so you really can hardly see the pretzel shape.)
