Cinnamon Twists

Rated as 4.13 out of 5 Stars

"These delightful golden twists are perfect for a spring brunch or lunch. The brown sugar and cinnamon give them a delicate spicy flavor. It's a good thing the recipe makes a big batch, because people can rarely eat just one. --Janet Mooberry, Peoria, Illinois"

  1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Add 2 cups of flour, sugar, salt, milk, butter, egg and remaining water; beat on medium speed for minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down. Roll into a 16-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Brush with butter. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over butter. Let dough rest for 6 minutes. Cut lengthwise into three 16-in. x 4-in.x strips. Cut each strip into sixteen 4-in. x 1-in. pieces. Twist and place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

I do find that the dough is somewhat bland, but otherwise this recipe is very fun to make. For a little more decorative look, I twisted them and stuck the loose ends together to make sort of "kn...

These were very tasty! Unfortunately, I'm not very good at rolling out rectangles or twisting little shapes, so they look a little weird. Otherwise, it was very fun to make, and it was worth t...
