Dutch Cookie
The Netherlands sweet pretzel cookie
1 pound butter, softened
4 cups flour
1/2 cup water
With a pastry blender, cut and blend butter and flour. Add water a little at a time until well blended. Cover dough with saran wrap or place in a ziploc bag, removing as much air as possible.  Refrigerate overnight.  Take about 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into the size of a pencil, join ends together.  Dip both sides in granulated sugar, and lay on ungreased cookie sheet, twisting into a figure eight.  Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes or until lightly brown on the bottom.

This is the Netherlands sweet pretzel.  The pretzel came from Europe.  I also learned that the saying “tying the knot” came from the pretzel. 
pretzel history
While I was making this cookie, I thought about tying the knot.
You join two ends together
you cover it in sweetness
you then twist it together or knot it
you end up with something very delicate
My husband and I tied the knot in Hawaii
