Cinnamon Twirl Cookies
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min./batch + cooling
Everyone loved these. Definitely recommend using a food processor for the nuts, sugar, and cinnamon. Dough needs to be rolled very thin. Next time I will try rolling in a rectangle and cutting like you do for Croissants, which may save time.
I've never rated a recipe here before but had to do so today - I just finished making these and they are definitely the families new favorite!! Super easy to follow the directions and make and the flavor is so delirious - tastes like a small cinnamon roll!
These little cookies are simple to make and pretty on the plate, dusted with powdered sugar. I made them exactly as the recipe stated with one addition. I gave the cookies an egg wash before popping them in the oven. They came out shiny and a little more crispy. The powdered sugar didn't cover up all the shine, so it wasn't a wasted exercise. I also liked the dough. It was easy to roll, especially after Mama Cappuccio's demonstration pictures, and tasted delicious with the crunchy walnuts and cinnamon sugar. Definitely worth the time and ingredients.
Messy, not very flavorful
These are so good. My husband loved them and he doesn’t really like walnuts, but you can’t tell they are in there when ground up. I told my mother about them. She made these and loved them too.
Been making these for years
Why cannot people accept a ‘Family Tradition’ recipe as it is written?
Just made these, I used salted butter and added just a little salt. The recipe does not tell you salted or unsalted. The dough taste great but the filling was a little dry. I used apricot preserves on the next batch with the filling and rolled them the same way they were great and weren’t dry. The next batch i made with the apricot preserves and the filling and made a long roll and when they were done just sliced them diagonal . Any way you do them they taste great. The dough is so good and easy to work with. I will one day try margarine but the regular salted butter was good maybe the margarine will make them too sticky. Sophia
How can recipe be adjusted to use butter in lieu of margarine?
I wish I can remember where I got my exact recipe from. Came off a label over 30 yrs ago! It’s a Christmas staple and they are delicious! I make many cookies, Italian cookies, the families favorite cookies. Why is it we only make them for the holidays? Sad thing is now our 3 yr old Grandson has severe nut allergies, so I have to make sure not to serve them or cross contaminate. You must try these you will not be disappointed! Being Italian I love family traditions ??
