Cinnamon Roll Twists

Here’s how easy it is to make these Cinnamon Roll Twists:

Grab your biscuit dough and lay it out so the edges are touching or even slightly over-lapping.  Using either a rolling pin or your hand, press/roll the dough into a rectangle

Cut the dough into 1 inch strips. (I like to use a pizza dough cutter to make this job super fast.) Take 2 strips of the dough and lay the cinnamon sugar sides together.  Grab both ends of the dough and twist.  Place on an un-greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 11-13 minutes. The twists should be lightly browned on top. While the twists are baking, mix up the frosting by simply stirring the powdered sugar and milk together.  The frosting should not be too runny, but rather a thick, paste-like consistency. I like to put the frosting in a zip lock bag, cut off a bottom corner and squeeze the frosting on top of the twists. YUM!
