  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tsp sugar
  • 3 Tbsp butter, cold (about 43 g)
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  1. In your food processor, mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the butter and process until you get crumb-like texture. Add the sour cream and mix until the dough forms a ball. (Of course, you can make all this mixing by hand as well).

  2. Take the ball out of food processor, flatten it and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. On a floured counter, take walnut-sized piece of dough and roll it into 1/2-inch thick and 5 inches long strand. Your hands should be dusted with flour to prevent sticking. Do the same with 2 more strands. Pinch the top of all three ends together, then make them into a braid. Pinch the ends together. You may need to add a drop of water if the dough will not stick together. Repeat the procedure with the remaining dough.

  4. Transfer braids to a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Braids should be about 1 inch apart.
  5. Bake in a preheated 450 F (230 C) oven until golden, about 12 minutes.
