    2      tb            Sour cream
    1      c             Less 2 tb sour milk
                         Or buttermilk
    1                    Egg
    1      t             Salt
    1      tb            Margarine -- melted
    2 1/2  c             Flour
    1      t             Baking soda
    1      t             Cinnamon
      1/4  c             Granulated sugar
 
   Put sour cream in a measuring cup. Add sour milk or   buttermilk to
 fill cup. Pour into a large bowl and add the   egg, salt and melted
 margarine. Blend well. Gradually, by   hand, add flour and soda, until
 everything is mixed and   blended.   Remove to a mixing board and knead
 until smooth. Let stand   3 hours or leave in refrigerator overnight.  
 Divide dough into serving pieces. Roll each piece 1/4 inch   thick; cut
 2 parallel slits in
 the center to make ears. Fry   in hot oil until golden brown. Dip each
 piece in cinnamon   and sugar.     I like to make this in the evening
 and put in frig.   overnight and then make them in the morning.   This
 recipe orginally came from “ Kentucky Cooking, Past   and Present”. I
 got it out of the 1984 HOME COOKING BOOK.
