These are easy--a quick little sweet to make.

Top Review by majakete

These turned out very nice, the mix of spices was really good. I used raisins instead of pecans and made it without the glaze because I didn't have one of the ingredients. It was nice, easy and quick. I also tried it with mincemeat, super easy for me and tasty for them. I guess the possibilities are endless... Thanks for a great idea!

  1. Unroll crescent rolls and separate each can into 4 rectangles, pressing perforations to seal. Brush evenly with 4 tablespoons of melted butter.
  2. Stir together pecans and next 3 ingredients. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of mixture on each rectangle. Pressing gently, roll up starting at the long side and twist.
  3. Cut 6 shallow ½-inch long diagonal slits into each roll. Shape into rings, pressing ends together.
  4. Place on lightly greased baking dish; brush the twist with remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Bake at 375°F for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Stir powdered sugar and syrup together and drizzle over warm twist.
