It's Flashback Friday...and I am re-posting a recipe that I shared in the early days of our blog. This recipe was given to me by a friend thirty years ago and is still at the front of my file...hand-written on the original card. Cinnamon twists were always a favorite on picnics and camping trips in days gone by. Let me warn you...it is impossible to eat only one!
- 5 cups flour
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1 pound butter or margarine (2 cups)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 6 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- Combine flour and baking powder.
- Cut in margarine.
- Beat eggs slightly with a fork; mix with milk.
- Combine with flour mixture to form a soft dough.
- Form 10 balls. Cover and chill for several hours.
- Sprinkle topping mixture onto working surface.
- Roll each ball of dough into a circle (about 9 inches).
- Sprinkle with a generous layer of topping.
- Cut into 8 crescents. (A pizza cutter works great.)
- Roll up to form crescents (from outer edge to inside).
- Bake at 325 degrees F for 15 - 20 minutes.
Yield: 80 twists
