Halloween Cinnamon Twists created by pines506

I don't know why they are called "Halloween" twists. I make them year round. Cook time includes rise time.

    Definitely delicious!! fairly simple to make, specially if you have a mixer. however i made a few minor changes myself.... I found I needed just a little more flour at the end, I also added raisins and they make it that much more delicious! I don't really think step 10 is necessary and I ended up trying to bake a few for about 20 minutes to see what happened, and I found that tho the fried ones were awesome when just done, they obviously lose crispiness after, but the baked one stay nice and firm but not hard, and healthier! Definitely will make again. Thanks for the great recipe!!

    When the dough had risen, the texture was so soft and fluffy, very marshmallow like. It was so easy to roll out and shape. Everyone liked these twists. I made them smaller so they were easier to fry up. Thank you for posting.

    I made this recipe for Pick-a-Chef 2005. This is an easy recipe that will give you very good results! I went ahead and kneaded the dough (step 8) for a few minutes in my KitchenAid stand mixer, and I used more (1 1/2 tsp) cinnamon and less (1/2 tsp) nutmeg. Otherwise, I followed the easy-to-make recipe exactly as written, and could not be more pleased with the results! I can really see how these yummy cinnamon twists would make a great tradition for Halloween or just to celebrate autumn. My family has asked me to be sure and make them again. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!
