Ingredients

2 1/2 to 3 1/2 cups Pillsbury all-purpose or unbleached flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 package active dry yeast
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon


Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, salt and yeast; blend well.


In a small saucepan, heat milk and margarine until warm (120-130 degrees). Add warm liquid, vanilla and eggs to flour mixture. Blend


at low speed until moistened; beat 2 minutes at medium speed. By hand, stir in remaining 11/2-21/2 cups flour to form soft dough.


Cover loosely with greased plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in a warm place for 30-40 minutes, until light and doubled in size. (Dough will be sticky.)


Grease 2 large cookie sheets. In a small bowl, combine nuts, 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon; blend well.


Drop about 1/4 cup dough into nut mixture; thoroughly coat. Stretch dough to about 8 inches in length; twist into desired shape.


Place on greased cookies sheets. Repeat


with remaining dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place, about 15 minutes.


Heat oven to 375 degrees. Uncover dough. Bake 8-16 minutes or until light golden brown.


Immediately remove from cookie sheets; cool on


wire racks. Serve warm.

Notes

These twists from Theodora Smafield of Michigan won the grand prize in the first Pillsbury Bake-Off in 1949. This recipe uses a streamlined method for the preparation of the dough from the original recipe.
