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.
I dont know why I have such a love/hate relationship with yeast doughs. I seem to really want to try to master them but I usually fail. This time I did A-OK with not killing the yeast and rising ability/patience in the dough. I had to add A LOT more flour, like at least a cup more, my dough was just ridiculously sticky and gooey. I don't know if this affected the flavor, as I am sure it did, but the flavor just wasn't there for me. I felt it was a lot of work for something I felt I could have gotten from frozen bread dough. The kids enjoyed them and they kept well on a recent camping trip I had made them for to bring for breakfast addition. I WILL attempt to make again however because when it comes to yeast doughs, I am a masochist ;)
I prefer this recipe over the ones that call for shortening butter, less sour cream and more eggs.
What a great recipe! I have made this many, many times and every time I get the best compliments! I make these into mini twists that about finger length and they are great at parties - just the right size for carrying around. I am helping a friend with her mother's 80th birthday party later this month and will make these twists - some with sultanas, some with grated apple, some with chopped pecans and some just as the recipe states. Definitely a keeper! Thank you so much for posting.
Breakfast time couldn't be better when your having one of these with a nice cup of ice coffee! Soft, and sweet and everything you are looking for to wake you up and put a smile on your face! Yum Te Dum!
These are right at the top of my list to make again soon. They are a surefire favorite at my house already! Thank you for sharing!
