Cinnamon Twists

These delightful golden twists are perfect for a spring brunch or lunch. The brown sugar and cinnamon give them a delicate spicy flavor. It's a good thing the recipe makes a big batch, because people can rarely eat just one. —Janet Mooberry, Peoria, Illinois

    4 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°), divided
  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • FILLING:
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Add 2 cups of flour, sugar, salt, milk, butter, egg and remaining water; beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch down dough. Roll into a 16x12-in. rectangle. Brush with butter. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over butter. Let dough rest for 6 minutes. Cut lengthwise into three 16x4-in. strips. Cut each strip into sixteen 4x1-in. pieces. Twist and place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
