These soft, buttery cinnamon roll twists are made easily with crescent roll dough. No rising, no rolling, and no time at all until they’re in your belly! Simply separate your dough into rectangles, brush on melted butter and sprinkle cinnamon-sugar on top. Press a rectangle, buttered side down, on top of another, and press the edges to seal. Slice the dough into strips, twist them up and lay them on your baking sheet. Brush a bit more butter and cinnamon-sugar on top. Then, all that’s left to do is wait patiently! These twists bake up beautifully golden, puffy and sweet. Each one tastes like a gooey cinnamon roll, or a churro… without all the work! With a quick 2-ingredient glaze for dipping, these soft cinnamon twists are heavenly. One dunk and you’ll realize how incredibly delicious they are! Perfect for breakfasts and brunches, party appetizers, and dessert platters, and so easy. What’s not to love? Wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas. Bake these twists for breakfast, and I guarantee your holiday will be all the more happy!
