for the dough

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

for the glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400. In the bowl of a stand mixer or a large mixing bowl, combine warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let sit five minutes or until yeast is bubbly.
  • Add flour and salt, and mix until a smooth dough forms. Let rise for 10 minutes.
  • Roll out dough on a surface lightly sprinkled with flour to about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Spread dough with melted butter, and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
  • Fold dough over onto itself, with the cinnamon-sugar mixture in the middle.
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut into 1 inch wide strips.
  • Twist each piece, then place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • While the bread twists are baking, whisk together the powdered sugar and cinnamon, then add milk until the glaze reaches your desired consistency.
  • Let the bread twists cool for about five minutes, then drizzle with glaze. Enjoy warm.
