Breakfast Cinnamon Twists {kids in the kitchen}

Good Morning!  Are you looking for an easy, delicious breakfast recipe that your kids can help prepare?  Me, Me…I do!  These Cinnamon Twists are just that.  Growing up, these were one of the first recipes I learned to make by myself {besides microwaved eggs, but we won’t go there today}.  Now, Cinnamon Twists are a breakfast staple at our house and the boys request to make them.  They know what ingredients are involved, set them on the counter, tie on their aprons, pull up their stools and are ready to cook.  {Really it just involves assembling…even better, right!}

Cinnamon Twists


1 tube refrigerated biscuits (not flaky layers)

Then prep everything on the counter as an assembly line with the biscuits, melted butter, cinnamon sugar mix and an ungreased cookie sheet or baking stone.  Preheat oven according to temperature on biscuit package.  Working with one biscuit at a time, take each biscuit and flatten them out like pancakes.  Then dip flattened biscuit in melted butter. Dip and thoroughly coat in the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Then twist biscuit and transfer to baking sheet.  Line up with a little space in between each one.  Bake approximately 10 minutes (or according to the biscuit package.)

Note: I prefer the cheapest biscuits- not sure why, but they seem to bake up better. Depending on what sounds good, I have added pumpkin pie spice with the sugar mixture as well as rolling up some thinly sliced apples in the biscuit.  Red Hots are good too…Yum!

The drink: My boys think they are really getting something special when I make them Kidmosas…our version of a Mimosa.  It’s 1 part orange juice, 1 part club soda or Sprite/7Up with a frozen fruit garnish.

Enjoy!  This little helper sure did!  I think he might have eaten ALL the leftover cinnamon sugar mixture with his fingers.  Gosh…I sure love those lashes.
