Luscious twists are a twIsT on the cinnamon roll.
I made these today as I was having a baking day and thought it might be a special treat for my guys. (Of course, I ate a few too. This is MY plate)

The recipe is from The Buffalo Lutheran Parish Cookbook and the recipe itself is Margaret Nelson's. She's been out here ranching on the Montana prairie much, much longer than I have. She and I both know that a ranchgirl has to have something sweet now and then, and these fit the bill! They're a nice treat for visitors too.


1 c. sour cream
1 T. butter
1 t. salt
3 c. flour
1 pkg. yeast
3 T. sugar
1 egg, beaten

Dissolve yeast in 1/4 c. of warm water with a sprinkle of sugar. Heat sour cream to lukewarm and then add everything but the flour. Mix well. Add 1 c. of the flour, beat until smooth. Then add the rest of the flour gradually. Knead 5-10 minutes. (I usually skip this part) Let rise one hour. Roll out to a 26x6" rectangle. Butter and sprinkle it with brown sugar and cinnamon. Fold over -- wide end to wide end. Cut into about 24 strips with pizza cutter. On a large cookie sheet, put 1/2 c. melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar. Twist the strips and lay them into the pan. Let rise one hour. Bake at 375* for 12-15 minutes.


1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 to 2 T. hot water
1 1/2 t. vanilla
2 T. melted butter

Mix and glaze the twists while still warm.


  1. This looks delicious. I've bookmarked the page to come back to over the weekend. :)

  2. Put on the coffee Jody, I'm on my way!


  3. Do like your blog, hope you don't mind if I add you to my favourites list.

  4. OH. YUM. Those look awesome. Right into my book of notes!!! Thanks!

  5. Oh yummm, I love the sour cream in the dough. Love Clarice

  6. I'll have to try these. My family won't know what to think since sweet baking is not my thing. But I have no problem eating them of course!

  7. Yum, yum, yum! These look just wonderful. I will definitely make them for a special treat when my husband and son are home. We'll all like them, but those two especially will! :-)

    Thanks once again,

  8. The picture is making my mouth water! And my husband is looking over my shoulder, suggesting that I should try them...printing out the recipe now. Thank you Jody!


  9. Jody,

    Made these and even with my only putting 1/2 cup sour cream in them (accidently), they turned out delicious. DH said he knew they had to come from the north country!
