This is the EXACT recipe that won the 1963 Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest. The name "Maple Butter Twists" is the same, too. My mother baked Maple Butter Twists every Christmas through the 1960's & 70's & 80's as gifts to neighbors - she was known for them - and I do the same. She gave me the original clipping from the 1963 newspaper. It is still legible, but tattered with use.
These bread twists are amazing. Can't believe they came out looking so pretty and tasting awesome too! I had been wanting to make this recipe for awhile but thought 'Oh it looks kind of complicated'. It actually wasn't a difficult recipe at all!
OMG...let it rise for one hour and I had the biggest, softest, most delish bread ever.I used instant yeast following the directions carefully so after a 10 minute rest and shaping I only need one rise. Because I stepped out of the house and came back in an hour it got extra rise time. It was incredible.
Oops... I just realized that I rated the wrong one... I made another one with a glaze on it... they have the exact same name.
These are so good! I made them for Christmas morning last year and everyone loved them!
