"To cook is to
create. And to create well...is an act of integrity, and faith,"
"The smell of good bread baking, like the sound of
lightly flowing water,
is indescribable in its evocation of innocence and delight..."

Gigi's Cinnamon Twists
A 1/4-ounce package active dry yeast
3/4 cup warm (110 to 115 degrees F.) divided
4 to 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup warm (110 to 115 degrees F.) milk
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, room temperature
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Add 2
cups flour, sugar, salt, milk, butter, egg and remaining water; beat on medium speed for 2
minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured board;
knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning
once to grease top. Cover and
let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1
hour. Punch down.
Roll the dough into a 16-by-12-inch rectangle. Brush with butter.
Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over butter. Let dough rest for 6 minutes. Cut
lengthwise into three 16-by-4-inch strips. Cut each strip into sixteen 4-by-1-inch pieces.
Twist and place on greased baking sheets.
Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30
minutes. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15 minutes or until golden. Makes 4 dozen
