Palmeras Recipe

Cheap and easy, but yummy!

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour

1-1/2 cups cold butter, cut into cubes

3/4 cup sour cream

1 cup sugar, divided

Method

Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut butter into flour until mixture resembles
coarse
crumbs. Stir in sour cream. Transfer mixture to a lightly floured surface and
knead until
dough holds together.

Flatten dough into a 8 x 6-inch rectangle. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate. Sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar onto work surface. Divide dough
in half.

Wrap half of the dough in plastic wrap and return to refrigerator.

Roll the remaining half of dough out on the sugared surface to form a 14-inch
square.

Using side of hand, make an indentation down center of dough. Starting at one
side,

tightly roll dough until it reaches indentation. Repeat with other side, incorporating
as

much sugar as possible into dough. Wrap roll tightly in plastic wrap and stand
up inside a

tall drinking glass to keep from flattening on the refrigerator shelf. Repeat
with second half
of dough and remaining sugar. Refrigerate 2 hours or up to 3 days, or freeze
up to 3
weeks.

To cook:

Pre-heat oven to 350 F. With serrated knife, cut rolls crosswise into 1/4 inch
thick slices.
Return rolls to refrigerator if the dough becomes too soft to slice. Place slices
2 inches
apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes; carefully turn cookies
over and
bake 5 minutes longer or until sugar has caramelized and cookies are deep golden.

Le
cookies remain on cookie sheet on wire rack 1 minute to cool slightly. Transfer
cookies to
wire rack to cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container for up
to 1 week.
