Quick Cinnamon Twists

I love cinnamon twists but most recipes call for crescent rolls - which I never have on hand. This uses quick-rising yeast and has a 15 - 20 minute rise time. This should work for you if you want something quick! From: Homemade for the Holidays by Molly Williams, Lyons-Decatur Northeast School, Lyons, NE.

    These have a nice flavor. I baked mine the recommended time, which was probably a bit too long even though they were a nice golden brown. They came out a tad dry, but this didn't stop us from eating them ;-). I didn't quite understand the folding directions, so I just folded each square in half and then cut and twisted per instructions. I found the dough a little stiff to roll out, but was fine once baked. These were easy and I will definitely try them again and just not bake as long in hopes they will be a little more moist. Thanks for sharing.
