We’ve been on a breadstick kick. My children are obsessed with them, and love them even more than pizza. They’ve started begging for breadsticks at every meal, and while I don’t always heed their cries, I do find I am making them more than usual. Why? Well, they are so easy to put together, and work with almost any kind of meal. Pizza and breadsticks. Spaghetti and breadsticks. Chicken and breadsticks. Lasagna and breadsticks. (Don’t worry, there are plenty of vegetables served alongside, too). One weekend morning, when breadsticks were brought up for breakfast, I decided to surprise them with cinnamon twists instead. They were an instant hit, and while these are not a weekly affair, they are a fun, simple way to sweeten up a breakfast, brunch, or even dinner table.
- 1 pound dough Master Recipe or Brioche, or any leftover scraps of dough you have. (A richer dough like the brioche will make for a more indulgent twist.)
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 1/2 cup brown sugar (granulated will work, too)
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
