Ukrainian Scuffles

Ukrainian Scuffles, also known as rogalyky, are a signature Ukrainian dessert cooked for Christmas. These croissant-shaped rolls are traditionally made of buttery yeast dough and covered with cinnamon sugar. Soft and buttery, they are fun and easy to make. A few pantry staple ingredients and a slow overnight rise give this dough its amazing flavor and texture.

The dough is very easy to put together and is best if prepared in advance and refrigerated overnight. The next day, divide the dough into 6 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Work with one dough ball at a time, keeping the remaining dough in the fridge. Generously sprinkle the working surface with cinnamon sugar and roll out the dough into a circle. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut it into equal triangles. Roll up each triangle starting from the wide end into a croissant-shaped roll and place it on the prepared cookie sheet. If you have kids, get them involved in the fun by having them roll up the scuffles as you slice the dough. Bake the scuffles in batches for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool before serving, and enjoy!

To make the Ukrainian Scuffles, you will need the following ingredients:
