    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    I make these anytime of the year, but was a tradition with my granddaughter that we take them to Easter Sunrise Service breakfast. Everyone loves them. If you don't overbake them, they are soft and tender and delicious with an icing. You'll make them again and again.

      We loved this recipe. I have made this twice already and this last time I made it my twists came out perfect. After spreading the cinnamon/sugar combo on the rectangle I folded the dough once as indicated in the recipe. I cut the strips and then I folded each strip in half again and twisted on both ends, gently pulling to stretch. I also only used 1 tsp of butter on top of the dough. Otherwise, followed as written. This time around I made an orange glaze to put on top of the baked twists. I mixed 2 cups of powdered sugar with 1/4 cup orange juice and added zest to the mixture. Loved the result. Thanks mini for sharing!

      These are heavenly! I shared my freshly-baked batch with neighbors who loved them just as we did. I stopped at 2 3/4 cups flour and later formed fourteen extra-large twists which were baked on two cookie sheets. Next time I'll bake the twists on parchment paper to keep them very light on the bottom. Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe!

      My grandchildren always ask me to make these when they come over to stay. I have to agree with them, they are delish! For variation, sometimes I mix in chopped nuts with the glaze. Great addition.
