Kids in the Kitchen- Cinnamon Twist

Wow, Its Thursday already!!! This week has flown by, and I have been so busy I can't even see straight, part of me wonders how the heck I got all this stuff done while I was working? Because I can barely manage now when not working!!!
Glad you all have stopped by this week to check out Kids in the Kitchen, you may think that I would have a biscuit fetish, doing 2 post in one week using biscuits (see Easy Donut post here) In all actuality though I am just trying to use whats in my fridge before we leave for our honeymoon next week, and truth be known I am a sucker, I bought the 4pk of biscuit cans instead of getting just 1 pk bc afterall I thought I was getting a deal (and I was!!!) And last night when visiting a local fast food resturant, with Lu in the back seat hollering for some cinnimon twist, a light bulb went off, "HEY I BET I CAN MAKE THOSE WITH THE BISCUIT DOUGH AND BETTER THAN THE FAST FOOD PLACE" so off I went on an endevor to find a recipe .... and they were Oh So Simple!
I did not take a picture like normal, so the ingredients are as follows:
*1 can store brand buttermilk bisquits
*cinnamon/sugar mixture
*butter (just a couple melted tablespoons)
*Preheat oven to 350 degress
I also whipped up some glaze to go on top, and will get to the ingredients later in the post.
I cut the biscuits in 1/2 while Lu rolled them out, this part was fun, and she described it as making snakes with her her modeling clay.
Then she took a marinade brush, and brushed the melted butter on 2 strips at a time
Then sprinkled it with the cinnamon.sugar mixture.
and twist .... this was fun too! Lay them on a nonstick cookie sheet, and once again sprinkle a little more sugar mix over them. Put them in the preheated oven for 15 mins or until golden.
For the glaze I did not measure, but we used approximatley 1 cup powdered sugar, a couple tablespoons of milk, some vanilla, and a dash of salt. She stired until a nice creamy consistency.
Then spooned the glaze on the warm twist.
Heres the end product, they were yummy, and now I only have 1 can of biscuits left ... any ideas yall got out there for me to make with it???

I leave you with this one last pic of my little Lu, eating and talking on the phone, oh shes just like her mother!!!

  1. another great idea - need to stock up on biscuits. :) I linked to something we did several months ago. Hope that is okay.

  2. Do you remember when we used to make those as kids? We didn't use a glaze and we just dipped them in the butter instead of brushing it on, but other than that we made those exact things.

    Do you have hot dogs or lil sausage? You could make pigs in a blanket...actually that's gonna be my post for KITK later today.

  3. These looks so good. With all of your good ideas with biscuits it makes me want to run out and buy a bunch :) You could do mini calzones.

  4. I have put my post in Mr Linky twice and it hasn't shown up....if they all of a sudden appear you can erase one! Sorry about that :)

  5. I have an idea for that extra can of biscuits...make thos cinnamon twists for your Momma! LOL

  6. Mmm...those look like they'd make a great, extra special after school snack!
