  1. Instructions Scald milk. When lukewarm, add yeast cakes. As soon as dissolved, add three and one-half cups flour. Beat thoroughly, cover, and let rise. Then add butter, shortening, sugar, unbeaten egg, cinnamon, salt, and flour, enough to knead. Knead until well mixed, cover, and let rise. Turn mixture on a floured cloth. Roll into a long, rectangular piece 1/4 inch thick. Brush over with melted butter, fold from ends toward center to make three layers and cut off pieces 3/4 inch wide. Cover and let rise. Take each piece separately in your hands and twist from ends in opposite directions, then shape in a coil. Place in buttered pans, cover, again let rise, and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool slightly and brush over with confectioners' sugar moistened with boiling water and flavored with vanilla. .
