I had not thought of these for a very long time. I happened to see some pictures out on the 'net and it sparked the memory. I make all of our bread anyway, and I make Mom's bread recipe regularly. It makes such fantastic sandwiches or toast. So the other day I was making bread anyway and set aside a loaf worth of the dough to make these Cinnamon Twists. They are easy enough, though I am sure that I made the cinnamon mixture differently than Mom did. I mixed up some room temperature butter with sugar and cinnamon into a paste. I rolled out the dough to at least 2 feet wide by about 12 - 14 inches. I had one long end closest to me and spread the cinnamon mixture over that long half of the dough. I folded the top half of the dough down over the cinnamon mixture, making about a 7-inch by 24 inch piece. Using a bench scraper, I cut the strips.
