    CassiaDawn's Note:

    My aunt used to make these cookies when I was younger, and I liked them enough to have my mother get the recipe for them. My aunt died not long after, and the recipe was misplaced. It recently resurfaced, so I'm submitting it to Zaar so it doesn't get lost again. (Unfortunately the recipe doesn't say how large or thick the dough circles should be, so some experimentation might be necessary! I've also guessed at the cooking time - please watch your cookies!)

      Other than cutting the recipe in half, it was pretty much followed, & we were very satisfied with these cinnamon twists! Loved makin' 'em & loved eating 'em, too! We were going to share them, & I would have if I'd made the full batch, but after 36 hours, we didn't have much left! Will be making these again & again, I know! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
