Something Fun: Cinnamon Twists
A delicious treat for breakfast which I have made for years is cinnamon twists. The last time I counted I have made over 9,000 of these. My daughters loved them when they were young. I would make them every Sabbath morning as a treat. The original receipt came from Harrow Smith magazine. Now make this smaller recipe which makes 8-9 twists. If you want more you can double the recipe.
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. yeast
- 1 stick of butter or margarine
- 1/2 cup sour cream or yogurt
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- brown sugar and cinnamon mixture to your taste.
Mix all dry ingredients. Melt butter/margarine and mix in sour cream/yogurt first and then the egg and vanilla. If needed add more flour to make a stiff dough. Refrigerate the dough for 4-48 hours. Roll dough into a rectangle about 1/8 inch thick. Spread sugar mixture over the dough. Fold over 1/3 of the rectangle and sugar the exposed unsugared dough surface. Fold the other 1/3 over the again and roll out into a rectangle again. Sugar the entire dough surface again. Cut into strips about 1 – 1 1/2 inches wide. Roll the strip up at an angle making a trumpet looking pasty. Put on greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degree for 15-20 minutes till golden brown. Cool slightly. Best if served warm. Is very good with applesauce.
