Cinnamon is definitely one of my favourite things on the entire planet. Any excuse to incorporate it into food is a welcome one. For it the be the hero of the dish, so much the better.
I've been wanting to try these for ages, but every time I went to make them, I wouldn't have enough sour cream. When I went shopping and bought sour cream, I could never remember what I wanted it for so would use it for dinner instead. Rinse. Repeat.
This time I remembered. Yay! Now I can finally share them with you.
These twists are super easy. All you have to do is spread the filling over your dough, fold in half and cut.
A little twist of each end gives that lovely cinnamon swirl.
They're nice enough just like this. They're definitely sweet enough, as long as you don't find a bit that's missing filling. We certainly nommed quite a few of them right out of the oven. Half of them never made it to the icing stage.
But if you're a sweet tooth, or manage not to eat the entire batch right out of the oven, you can drizzle a little icing on once they've cooled down.
This one has definitely made it onto the regulars list. If only I can remember to save the sour cream…
Here's how you can make some for yourself:
NB: Yeast that comes in individual sachets is near fool proof: rarely will you get a dud batch. However, if you are using a large container of dried yeast that had previously been opened, or just want to be safe, you can proof it by adding it to the warmed (NOT hot) milk with a pinch of sugar: if it froths, your yeast is alive.

these twists are perfect ! i want to make them but am not sure if i can get sour cream 😦 isn’t there any substitute ?
You can substitute 1 cup sour cream for 7/8 cup buttermilk/sour milk and 1/8 cup butter.
You can make buttermilk by adding 1tbsp of vinegar or lemon juice and letting it sit for 15 minutes.
