Twisted Cinnamon Bread

Braided bread packs layers of cinnamon sugar, complemented with a vanilla dipping sauce.


  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 5 puff pastry sheets, thawed
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Vanilla icing for dipping, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Mix together cinnamon and sugar, set aside.
  3. Using an 8-inch plate or cake round, trace the plate on top of each puff pastry.
  4. To build, place one round on a work surface, brush with butter, and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining layers.
  5. To make twist, slice 8 triangles starting from the inside out, leaving an inch diameter around the edge.
  6. Starting with one triangle at a time, peel back each layer and fold over at an angle, repeating with remaining triangle stacks.
  7. Brush with remaining melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture and bake for 45 minutes or until golden and crispy.
