This is a recipe I came across years ago. A friend had brought it as a snack to a Bible study and I just had to have the recipe. I like to make this when I have a sudden craving for something hot and cinnamon-y. Try it and you’ll be hooked too.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

How to Make It

  • Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in large bowl.
  • Combine the butter with the flour mixture with a pastry blender.
  • Add milk and egg. Stir until the dough is moistened.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 8-10 times or until the dough becomes smooth.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and grease a baking sheet.
  • Roll the dough out into an 18×10 inch rectangle.
  • Brush surface with melted butter.
  • Combine chopped pecans, cinnamon, and brown sugar in small bowl.
  • Sprinkle on half the dough.
  • Fold the dough in half covering the pecan-sugar mixture and press down with your hand or a rolling pin to secure the layers.
  • Slice into strips about 1 1/2 inches wide.
  • Twist each strip twice before placing on the baking sheet.
  • Press ends on the baking sheet to secure the twists. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes.
