CINNAMON SUGAR TWISTS

You’ll Need
– 3 tablespoons sugar
– 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
– 1 – 8-ounce can crescent rolls
– 3 tablespoons melted butter

How To

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
  2. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together.
  3. Roll out the crescent rolls and separate into 4 equal rectangles. Close the gaps in the dough by pressing the seams of the triangles together.
  4. Brush all 4 dough rectangles with the melted butter.
  5. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture onto 2 of the dough pieces.
  6. Place the plain dough pieces on top of the ones sprinkled with the cinnamon-sugar. Press down the dough to seal the two pieces together.
  7. Cut each sealed rectangle lengthwise into 6 long strips.
  8. Hold one strip with one end in each hand, and give it 3 or 4 twists. Repeat with the remaining 11 strips.
  9. Bake the spiraled strips for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  10. After baking and while the twists are still hot, brush each strip again with the leftover butter, then roll in the remaining cinnamon-sugar.

Easy and sweet! These twists would make a perfect snack for a brunch, tea, or wedding or baby shower. Have you ever tried making anything similar?
