Tasty Tuesday--Cinnamon Twists

Happy Tuesday! We are expected to get a bunch of snow today. Not looking forward to it. I am so over this winter and so ready for spring! I've got a sweet, easy treat--perfect for snow days! Chances are, you've got these ingredients in your frig and pantry! Surprise your family with these sometime soon--they'll love you for it!

I clipped this recipe out of a Taste of Home magazine many years ago.

Cinnamon Twists

1 pkg. refrig crescent rolls (8 oz)
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 Tbls. butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 c. powdered sugar
1 Tbls. butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp hot water
1/8 tsp almond extract

Separate crescent roll dough into four rectangles; press seams to seal. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, butter and cinnamon; spread over two rectangles. Top with remaining two rectangles. Starting from a long side, cut each rectangle into eight strips. 

Twist each strip several times; seal ends together.

Place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove to wire racks. Combine glaze ingredients; brush over warm twists. These are best when enjoyed while they are still warm. Kids loved these!
