Cinnamon Twists

Like I mentioned in my last update, John never requests for me to make anything specific. Since I am really annoying and don't take no for an answer I normally prod him and ask him numerous questions trying to get some input. One question I ask often is "Tell me something your mom used to make that you liked." After asking this question SO MANY TIMES he finally named something: Cinnamon twists. Now, in seventh grade we had to take a cooking class and one of the things we made were cinnamon twists. I wasn't sure if these were the same version as John's moms but I figured they must be similar! I mean cinnamon, sugar, dough... there's only so many options!

I was a little nervous when John peered over my shoulder as I was cooking these and said "Those are NOT how my mom made them!" Well.... low and behold once he tasted them he said they were exactly like his moms! These are so good and they are best served warm, straight from the oven.

1 roll of refrigerated biscuits (10 count per package)
2 tablespoons of butter, melted
6 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of cinnamon (approximately- add more or less to taste)

1- Preheat the oven to 400. Combine the cinnamon and sugar into one bowl, stir until well combined.
2- Lay each biscuit out and slice it in half.
3- Take one piece of dough at a time and roll it between your palms until its about 2 inches long. Then tie the dough into a knot. Dip the knot into the butter, then into the cinnamon sugar mixture.
4- Lay the knot on an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough.
5- Bake for about 8 minutes or until golden.
6- Serve warm


  1. These tasted just like Mom's! So good.

  2. LOL at John! Gary never requests anything either..except oatmeal raisin cookies. I'll never be able to cook like his mom either :(

  3. Great idea to ask what he liked that his mom used to make. I should ask my husband that more often! These look tasty.

  4. I have a package of refridgerated rolls in the fridge, now I know what I'm using them for!! Thanks!

  5. Yum! looks easy and delicious!
