French Twists

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by NorthwestGal

This is a kid pleaser that is a simple twist on my kids' favorite breakfast dish -- French Toast, and serving the maple syrup as a dipping sauce. There are lots of versions of this simple idea, but this is how we make it in our home. It's so easy that most kids can even help prepare it.

Made these up more as a snack during the day than anything else ~ Very tasty little buggers, too! We liked them with some pure maple syrup, but also enjoyed them with a bit of apricot preserves slightly diluted with some apricot nectar! Definitely a keeper, & I look forward to including these on my finger food counter for 1 of the several monthly groups I host!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preperatory steps - Preheat the oven to 350º. Also, lightly butter or grease a baking baking sheet (for convenience, I usually just use a no-stick spray). And last, pour about 1 to 1 1/2 ounces of maple syrup into 4 separate condiment cups; set aside.
  2. Stir together the cinnamon and sugar, and place the cinnamon/sugar mixture in an even layer in a shallow dish.
  3. Remove dough from package, and separate dough into 12 individual breadsticks. Roll each breadstick in the cinnamon/sugar mixture until both sides are evenly coated. Twist each coated breadstick 2 or 3 times, to make a spiral.
  4. Place twisted breadsticks on the lightly coated baking sheet. Bake in a 350º oven for 12-15 minutes or until breadsticks are puffy and lightly golden brown.
  5. Let cool for a minute on the baking sheet.
  6. The recipe is intended for 3 French Twists and 1 1/2 ounce serving of maple syrup (for dipping the French Twists) per serving. But feel free to adjust serving sizes to suit your needs.
