I made these from scratch, like the recipe, but you could use any refrigerated store-bought dough.
1 1/2 c hot water
1 TBS sugar
1 tsp salt
1 TBS butter, cut into pieces
4 c flour
1 TBS yeast
cinnamon/sugar mixture (1/2 c sugar, 1 TBS cinnamon)
1/2 c butter, melted
4 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-3 TBS milk
In a large bowl, add hot water, egg, 1 c flour, sugar, butter, then yeast. Mix for 2-3 min, then add remaining flour. Knead for about 8-10 min.
Divide dough in half, roll each into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. With a pizza cutter, cut dough in half lengthwise and then into strips about 1 1/2 inches wide. (you can get about 18-20 strips from each rectangle) Roll in melted butter, then cinnamon/sugar mixture. Twist, fold in half, then twist ends together. Place in pan & allow to rise for about 20 min.
Bake at 400* for 10-12 min or until very lightly golden.
Drizzle with glaze while still warm. Remove from pan.
Makes about 40 twists
