Foodie Fav: Cinnamon Twists

Valentine’s Day is coming up (don’t act like you forgot gentlemen) and while flowers are really nice, we’re pretty sure your girl wants some sweets too. Cue these super easy and super cute cinnamon twists from Lil Luna. So easy, even a man can make them. (Yes, we went there.) Throw them in a Ball jar to make them gift worthy and you’re as good as gold. Ok, maybe not gold. You should probably go get her that gold necklace as well, just to be safe.

  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp melted butter

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease a baking sheet. Roll out the crescent rolls so they make four rectangles (as opposed to the triangles they want to be), pressing the inner edges together to bind them. Mix your sugar and cinnamon together and set aside. Brush 3/4 of your melted butter on to two of the rectangles, and sprinkle with 3/4 of the sugar mixture. Take the two un-buttered rectangles and lay them on top of the sugar coated ones, pressing the edges to seal them.

Cut both rectangles in to six strips (I found a pizza cutter is the easiest way to do this). Brush on the remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Lil Luna suggests baking them for 8-10 minutes but I found that mine actually took around 20 to get a nice golden brown. I was able to try a bite of them at the party and they really are heavenly!
