   mix lightly. Divide dough into thirds. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
   Take out one piece at a time from refrigerator; roll out on a sugared board

   filling on half of the 12-inch edge of dough. Fold over lengthwise and
   seal, forming a 12x4 1/2-inch rectangle. Pat out to press filling into

   dough.  Fold over lengthwise, forming a 12x2-inch rectangle. Pat down to
   12x4-inches.  Slice 1/2-inch pieces down the 12-inch side of the dough.
   Repeat with remaining two portions of dough. Twist each slice and roll in
   remaining filling.  Place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350øF for 15-18
   minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or cool. (*To sour milk, place 2
   tablespoons white vinegar in a measuring cup.  Add enough milk to equal 3/4
   cup.)
