Swedish cinnamon twist

Yield: 24 twists

Measure Ingredient
1 pack Active dry yeast
1 tablespoon Sugar
¼ cup Warm milk
1 cup Buttermilk
¼ teaspoon Baking soda
½ cup Brown sugar
½ teaspoon Cinnamon
1½ cup Sifted powdered sugar
½ tablespoon Butter or margarine, melted
½ cup Margarine or butter, melted
2 Eggs, beaten
4 cups To 5 c hot roll mix
3 tablespoons Butter or margarine, melted
½ cup Chopped nuts
2 tablespoons Hot water



In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Set aside.

Bring buttermilk to a boilin a small saucepan; buttermilk should curdle. In a large bowl, combine buttermilk, baking soda and ½ cup melted margarine. Add eggs. When mixture is lukewarm, add dissolved yeast mixture. Gradually stir in 4 cups hot roll mix until the soft dough forms a ball. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Add additional hot roll mix if needed to make a soft but not too sticky dough. Lightly butter bowl.

Put dough in bowl and turn to butter top. Cover dough with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Generously grease 2 baking sheets. Prepare cinnamon filling.

Punch down dough. Roll out to a 12 x 20 rectangle. Brush dough with 3 tbsp melted butter or margarine. Sprinkle cinnamon filling lengthwise over half of dough to within ½" of long edge. Fold rectangle in half lengthwise to cover filling. Seal dough edges with the edge of a plate. With a pizza cutter, cut dough into 24 strips, about ¾" wide. Twist each strip twice and place strips 1" apart on prepared baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk, about 30 to 40 minutes. Preheat oven to 375. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown. Prepared glaze and brush on rolls while still warm. Submitted By MEG ANTCZAK On 02-06-95
