Torcetti piemontesi

Hi everyone, 
today I want to show you these simple desserts, called "torcetti piemontesi"..They're a typical dessert of Piedmont, northern Italy's region.

Here's the recipe!


250 g flour
90 g butter
5 gr brewer's yeast

How to make it:

Melt the yeast in some warm water; Pour flour in a bowl and add a pinch of salt, pour the melted yeast and start kneading. Mix it well, and shape the dough into a ball, it must be soft and swollen. Cover it with a cloth and leave it to rise for at least 1 hour.
Now, put the dough on a work surface and add the butter- make sure it's soft-. Once you've mixed the butter well with the dough, leave it to rise for 30 minutes more.
Then, from the dough cut some bits..They should be 10 cm long and 1 cm thick (more or less). Roll them in caster or powdered sugar, and fold them, like you see on the photo. Place them on a baking tin (remember to put a sheet of greaseproof paper and bake them at 170°C, for about15 minutes. Enjoy!
