Cinnamon Twist

I am a fan of Pillsbury products especially their breadsticks. I used it for to make Blueberry Cream Cheese Loaf, cheese sticks or garlic bread. For today I made Cinnamon twist out of it. These twists are great for breakfast or afternoon tea. All it takes it just 15 minutes to put it together and another 15-20 minutes to bake and you will have freshly bake twist with your morning coffee or afternoon tea.


1 tube of Pillsbury breadsticks
3 tbsp of sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg

1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Combine sugar and cinnamon on a plate. Mix well. Beat the egg in a small bowl.
3. Take out the breadsticks dough from the tube, unroll it and separate the dough. Take a strip of the dough, brush it with egg on both side of the dough and then roll it in the cinnamon sugar. Take both ends of the dough and twist it.
4. Place the twist on the baking sheet. Do the same to the rest of the bread dough.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Note: you could do any number of different flavors with the breadsticks like spreading it with nutella, fruit jam, sprinkle it with cheese - the possibilities are endless.

This seems like an easier version of a Churro! Maybe even tastier :) I bet Nutella would be fantastic with these!

Mrsblocko said...

oh! I wish I had picked up a can of breadsticks at the grocery store today.

Cathy said...

These look might tasty, and easy to make as well. I've seen the breadsticks at my local grocery but have never tried it. Thanks for the recipe.

Lori, you can use puff pastry to make the twist. I do have the recipe if you like to make it from scratch. You can e.mail me if you want it.

Dawn, easy and tasty :)

Sophie said...

Clever way to use Pillsbury bread dough! They look crispy and tasty.

kit wong said...

thanks for your prompt reply, one more question is that, would any kind or brand of ready made puff pastry ok with your recipe? thanks again

Jamie said...

Wow yummy! Anything cinnamony-sugary is fabulous in my book and these are gorgeous. I need to try this idea.

ICook4Fun said...

Family First, thank you.

Sophie, it is crispy and tasty indeed :)

Lori, I am not sure where you are so I can't recommand what brand of puff pastry to use. Here in the US I used Pepperidge Farm brand. In my opinion any brand should be good.

Jamie, hope you like this :)

Dori said...
