Maple-Nut Coffee Twist

READY IN: 3hrs 22mins
Recipe by sweetcakes

This recipe is from Pillsbury Family Kitchens Cookbook. This is really delicous and makes a nice presentation. The dough is really easy to work with. I did need to add a couple more Tbsps of flour to the dough. This calls for a 12-inch pizza pan, but I'm sure a large cookie sheet would work just fine. :)

This has been a family favorite for years. It started out as a winning 4-H Breads project and is so delicious. A little complicated to get all the layers of dough together---but the end result is well worth the effort.
