Garlic and Cinnamon Bread Twists

Dough
Good morning! I hope your week is going well so far. Phillip was out of town for a few days, but is back at home and taking the rest of the week off. Today I'm going to share a new recipe for bread twists, so get out your apron and rolling pin!

Dough
I used my Homemade Pizza dough recipe and doubled it, so I could make a batch of both garlic and cinnamon twists.

Soft Bread Twists

1 (.25) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup warm water (110F degrees)
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 425F. In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

2. Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 10 minutes.

Dough
3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface into a 15 x 12" rectangle.

4. Cut dough into 1 inch strips lengthwise and then in half.

Twists
5. Twist each strip several times and place 1 inch apart on greased baking sheet.

Twist
Garlic Twists: Combine 3 tablespoons melted butter and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder in small bowl and brush over dough twists.

Bread
Bake at 425F for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with remaining butter mixture and enjoy!

Twist
Cinnamon Twists: Brush twists with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake at 425F for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.

Twists
These make a great snack on a summer afternoon. Let me know if you make some, too!

Those look delicious, Kelli! I LOVE breadsticks!

Kalianne@BygoneBeauty said...

Thanks for the tutorial Kelli! Your bread twists look ravishing. I haven't tried garlic and cinnamon together before - but it works in curries so why not bread sticks! This post is another keeper.

Terri said...

You're killing me, Kelli! Those look fabulous and I'm on a diet and can't eat them. However, I can make them for my family so thank you for the recipe. ;-)

Terri said...

Kalianne, it's two separate recipes - one for garlic bread twists and one for cinnamon bread twists. I'm not how good garlic and cinnamon would be together!

Just Mom said...

Simply scrumptious.

Sheri said...

Yum, yum ~ those look absolutely delicious! They would be a big hit at our house! My teenage son likes to order a small pizza and an order of cinnamon sticks (just like the ones pictured)from one of the local pizza joints...he can eat all of that by himself! I'm sure my kids would love it if I made those :)

Pattie said...

Oh my, Kelli - these look SO good!! I can almost smell them baking from here!

I had the cutest image of you rolling out the dough, then wiping flour off your hands to pick up your camera and take a photo... then back to the dough - then stopping to wipe your hands and pick up your camera, etc. I'm sure the process took forever, and I'm SO glad you shared the photos with us!

Obe's said...

Sounds yummy!

I saw the title and thought "Garlic and Cinnamon" ewww. Was glad to see it was a bread twist recipe where you could make either or. Will definitely try this once the weather cools down.

Have a wonderful day!

I swear, Kelli. You should have your own TV show! Everything I make from your recipes comes out wonderful. Can't wait to try these, I don't always have good luck with yeast for some reason.

Danielle said...

Those look GREAT!!! When I saw this title, I thought you were putting garlic and cinnamon together, and I was like... ew.
But now that I understand, I really want to try some.

HI Kelli! You have such a talent for blogging. Have I ever told you how much I love your blog?? I mean it sincerely.

Linda said...

Kelli these looks so good. I would love to try the cinnamon twist....one more for my recipe box:). Thank you for sharing...hugs, Linda

Heather said...

Kelli - your timing is as perfect as your pictures! These will go nicely with many of the main dishes I made today for the freezer - the garlic twists would be perfect with the buttermilk herb chicken, and the cinnamon would be great with the tortilla soup - kind of like the sopapillas our favorite Mexican restaurant serves after a spicy meal! Thank you so much for sharing!

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

Danielle said...

Kelli- I hope you get this comment (This is an old post). I made these yesterday and today. (Garlic kind). They are yummmmmmy!!! Thanks so much. It also gave me something to do with some yeast I got for only pennies.

Gail said...

I tried your recipe for the bread twists, they were sooooooo good. The next day I made pizza dough, I have been looking for a good pizza dough recipe, and now I have found it. Thanks

chammer1 said...

These sound terrific. Always wanted to make some of these and now I have a good recipe. Thank you so much.

Hi Kelli.... I too am a transplanted Canadian.... I live in England... we are Christians and I'm always looking for new recipes. I was reading a book that mentioned someone making Garlic Twists so I googled it for the recipe and yours came up! I'll let you know how they turn out... they look delicious!
