Ingredients

Directions

Preheat Oven to 375°. Have a cookie sheet handy.


Cook’s Tip: Keeping parchment paper handy is a great way to make quick work of clean ups. If you have some, top your cookie sheet with it now.


In cup or small bowl, combine Sugar Not™ Spoonful™ and cinnamon. Stir to blend well. Set aside.


In a medium size bowl, combine flour and yeast. Add 1-1/2 Tablespoons of the cinnamon/Sugar Not™ mixture and stir to combine well. Add sour cream and warm water. Stir and form ball and knead for a minute to mix the dough ingredients in well.


Place the dough ball in center of parchment covered cookie sheet surface or pastry mat. Press out to approximately 6” wide by 9”long area.
Coat surface with softened or melted butter. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon/ Sugar Not™ blend on top to completely cover dough surface area.


With a large knife, cut dough in center of dough’s longest (9”) side (into two approximately 6” x 4-1/2“ halves). Cut each half into 6 pieces of about 1” width.


Place each piece about 1” apart on cookie sheet and twist it a couple times; pressing to flatten the end edges down to hold the dough in place. Sprinkle any loose cinnamon-sweet mixture on top of twists.

Bake at 375° for 12 to 14 minutes until dough twists are golden brown. Dough will be somewhat soft to the touch. Cool for 15 minutes before sampling.


Note: That is the hard part. The waiting to sample them. There’s always extra cinnamon/ Sugar Not™ on the cookie sheet. So, there you go!


Freeze leftovers within a day for optimum freshness. Will keep well for up to 2 months. Makes 12 cinnamon twists. Per 3 twists, just 2 net carbs. Less then 1 net carb per twist.
