Ingredients used:

For 6 people

  • 3 cups - Flour
  • 0.5 cup - 2% reduced fat warm milk
  • 0.25 cup - Sugar

  • 0.5 cup - Golden raisins
  • 0.33 cup - Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons - Cinnamon
  • 0.5 cup - Powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons - 2% reduced fat milk

Recipe steps:

  • Dissolve the yeast in the warm water in a large bowl and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Add 2 cups of the flour, 1/2 cup milk, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons melted butter, salt, and egg to the bowl and mix on medium speed until smooth.
  • Stir in the remaining 3/4 cup flour and the raisins to form a soft dough.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, adding enough remaining flour to prevent the dough from sticking to the board (about 8 minutes).
  • Place the dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat the top.
  • Cover and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  • Punch down the dough.
  • Roll into a 12 inch square on a lightly floured surface.
  • Brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter.
  • Combine the 1/3 cup sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the dough.
  • Cut the dough in half crosswise and then into 12 strips lengthwise (making 24 pieces in total).
  • Place 2 strips together and twist. Pinch ends to seal and place on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
  • Gently press ends to baking sheet and repeat until all dough is used and 12 twists are made.
  • Let rise for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 350F and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.
  • In a bowl, combine the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla and stir well. Add milk by 1/2 teaspoon until the icing can be drizzled.
  • Drizzle over the twists and enjoy!
