Happy Easter!

Craisin/Raisin Twists have become part of my family’s Easter Morning Breakfast! This easy breakfast roll is made using Pillsbury Cinnamon Twists that are located in your supermarket’s Dairy Section.

The Plumped Raisins and Plumped Craisins that are used to make a very tasty oatmeal breakfast on cold mornings also add a delicious flavor to Cinnamon Twists. Easy is good and they are easy to make! Prepare and bake the Cinnamon Twists using the directions on the package with the following addition -

Remove the dough from the container and place the unrolled dough on a plate. Unroll one twist. Fold the strip in half and pinch the ends together. In the middle of the open area, place about 8 Plumped Raisins &/or Plumped Craisins. Gently, squeeze the dough on both sides toward the fruit. Then, twist the dough, making sure the ends are pinched together and place on the foil lined baking sheet. Bake 15 – 16 minutes or until golden brown.

After the Craisin/Raisin Twists have been baked and have cooled on a rack, the tempting icing is spread on top. Now, the Craisin/Raisin Twists can be placed lying flat in a Gallon Size Ziploc Bag and stored in the freezer.

Since the first time that I added the plumped craisins and plumped raisins to these “easy to bake” rolls, this is how I always bake them. You might find that one or two twists have been eaten before you have the opportunity to freeze them! ;-) For that reason, I always bake two batches. Quite often, I have a coupon to purchase two containers of the Pillsbury Cinnamon Twists.

Do you keep a container of Plumped Raisins and another container of Plumped Craisins in your fridge? The Apple Juice gives the fruit a little extra scrumptious flavoring! They are a delicious addition to many foods!

Happy Easter!

Enjoy the Craisin Raisin Twists!
