How to Make Polish Twist (Thief Boys)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix yeast, sugar and warm water together. Set aside
  • 2Combine 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar. Add hot milk and stir until butter is melted. Add to yeast mixture.
  • 3Add 2 cups flour and beat until smooth; beat in eggs. Add remaining flour to make a soft dough. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease the top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Dip each into melted butter, then sugar & cinnamon mixture, then butter, then chopped nuts. Fold each rope into half; twist to make a braid. Place on greased baking sheet and cover. Let rise until double, about 20 minutes.
  • 6Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
