Christmas morning will be here before you know it, well eleven days to be exact. I always like to have some kind of treat for the kids to grab in between opening presents. These cinnamon twists are just the ticket. Based on using 2 tablespoons of yeast just like in the 40 minute hamburger bun recipe from Taste of Home’s Best of Country Breads, you don’t have to wait for the bread to rise.
Just like a cinnamon roll but easier to eat on the go. These would also make great additions to Christmas baskets or given as gifts to teachers.
