5 1/2 cups flour
1 Ib butter

Mix all ingredients except butter in food processor (or with a hand mixer).
Roll dough inot large rectangle (about 12x20 inches)
Cut butter into approximately 1/4 inch slices.  Put butter slices on 2/3 of dough
Fold up bottom third (that doesn't hvae butter on it).  Fold down top third.
Regfigerate 20 minutes
Roll into 12x20 rectangle.  Fold into thirds.
Refrigerate 20 minutes
Roll into rectangle, fold into thirds again.
Refrierate 6 hours.
Roll out rectangle to about 1 inch thick.  Cut into 4 rows.  Roll o ut each section.
Cut each section into 6 wedges.  Roll each wedge very thin (the rougher the edges, the better).
Roll up each wege.  Put on greased cookie sheet.

Let raise 4 hours.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until browned.

As you can see these do take a little work, but they are SO worth it!  This is a family tradition in our house, we can't go a holiday without them!  We have them by themselves, with homemade freezer jam (yum) and with turkey, cream cheese, and cranberry sauce (yum again- although I realize that is more of a Thanksgiving day thing).  Anyways, HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
