Cinnamon Twists

I made these for a church brunch a couple weeks ago and they turned out so yummy and wonderful!! Plus they freeze extremely well! (Even when you've left them uncovered in the freezer for a week! ;))

Cinnamon Twists

3 cups flour
4 tsp. baking powder
2 TBSP sugar
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. cream of tarter
3/4 cup softened butter
1 cup milk
2 TBSP melted butter
approx. 1/2 cup brown sugar

Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in butter until mixture resembles course crumbs. Add milk and stir until moistened.

Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead in flour as needed until well mixed. Roll out dough into rectangle, approx. 1/4" thick.

Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar. Fold rectangle in half and cut into 1" strips. Twist strips and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
few tsp. milk or water to desired consistency for drizzling.

Mix together above ingredients and drizzle over warm twists.

These are delicious with or without the icing and are perfect for making ahead of time and freezing until needed!
