Love it! Monkey bread twists! I have to say that my rolling and twisting skills are in need of some work, but the taste is great, no matter my shortcomings...Thanks for sharing a winner, Maryland Jim and congratulations on 'both' of your Super Bowl wins! ;-)

We loved these yummy, little cinnamon twists. They go together quickly, with very little effort, using ingredients that I always have on hand. We really liked that they were not overly sweet like so many other breakfast pastries. I used chopped almonds, which toasted nicely while baking. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Fantastic!!! I really loved these cinnamon twists especially since they are so easy and quick to make in the morning. I made 1/2 of the recipe and ate two of them along with some fresh fruit for a breakfast. The outside is kind of crispy, from the sugar and butter, and then the inside is soft and tender. I sprinkled chopped pecans as my choice of nuts. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe and one I will make often. Made for your win in the football pool, congrats on your win again!!!
