When I'm craving a good, sweet bread with a twist, this is the recipe I reach for. They turn out soft and tender with swirls of cinnamon throughout. —Rebekah Beyer, Sabetha, Kansas

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3-1/4 to 3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • GLAZE:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine the egg, melted butter, sugar, salt, yeast mixture and 1-1/2 cups flour; beat on medium speed for 3 minutes or until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Punch dough down. Divide in half. Roll each portion into a 12-in. square. Spread each with softened butter; sprinkle with brown sugar mixture. Fold each square into thirds. Cut widthwise into 1-in.-wide strips. Twist each strip 2-3 times and place in two greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dishes. Cover and let rise until almost doubled.
  4. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. Whisk glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over twists. Yield: 2 dozen.
