Cinnamon Twists

Another recipe that comes from a Ward Cookbook and another family favorite. A twist (no pun intended) on traditional Cinnamon Rolls.

This recipe makes A LOT! so I usually make a half  batch.  I also use the dough setting in my bread machine to prepare the dough. Food

  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp yeast
  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 8 cups flour
  • 3/4 c sugar


  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine

Mix together

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon

Dissolve yeast in water; add the salt, yeast, eggs, shortening, flour and 3/4 cup sugar. Let rise. Pinch a piece of dough about the size of a walnut and roll into a rope. Dip in melted butter and then roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture. Tie in a knot. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Let rise until almost double. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes. Frost while hot with your favorite icing.
(Stay tuned for MY favorite icing for these or for traditional cinnamon rolls.)
