Cinnamon-Sugar Pecan Twists are a sweet treat and an easy, 5-ingredient recipe to bake when you need something semi-homemade in a pinch. One 8 oz. can of crescent rolls will make about 20 twists, but don’t count on there being any leftovers! I made a batch this weekend, and packaged them up to give to my neighbors, along with a Christmas card. Food gifts make the best gifts. When you take the time to make something homemade, in my experience, folks are always appreciative. Enjoy!
Some Kinda Good Cinnamon-Sugar Pecan Twists
- 8 oz can crescent rolls
- Cinnamon Sugar:
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- Butter, melted
Heat oven to 375°F. In small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Unroll dough; separate into 4 rectangles. Press each to 6×4-inch rectangle, pressing perforations to seal. Brush tops of rectangles with melted butter; sprinkle with about half of the sugar mixture. Top each with remaining rectangle; press edges lightly. Brush tops with melted butter. With sharp knife, cut each rectangle stack lengthwise into 6 strips. Twist each strip 3 times; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Brush tops with any remaining melted butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture.
