    I don't know why they are called "Halloween" twists. I make them year round. Cook time includes rise time.

      Definitely delicious!! fairly simple to make, specially if you have a mixer. however i made a few minor changes myself.... I found I needed just a little more flour at the end, I also added raisins and they make it that much more delicious! I don't really think step 10 is necessary and I ended up trying to bake a few for about 20 minutes to see what happened, and I found that tho the fried ones were awesome when just done, they obviously lose crispiness after, but the baked one stay nice and firm but not hard, and healthier! Definitely will make again. Thanks for the great recipe!!

      When the dough had risen, the texture was so soft and fluffy, very marshmallow like. It was so easy to roll out and shape. Everyone liked these twists. I made them smaller so they were easier to fry up. Thank you for posting.
