Maple Nut Twists
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped nuts (any kind)
3 Tablespoons maple syrup
3 Tablespoons butter, very soft
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray (or use parchment paper).
In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt.
Cut in 1/2 cup butter using pastry blender or hands (or grate frozen butter) until mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
Add 3/4 cup milk and stir with fork just until moistened.
On lightly floured surface, knead dough 10-12 times or until almost smooth.
Pat or roll dough into 15×9 inch rectangle.
In small bowl, stir all filling ingredients until well mixed.
Spread filling over dough: cover the full 15” length, but only the bottom half (about 4.5”).
Fold the bare top half over the covered bottom half, making a 15×4 rectangle.
Cut folded dough into 1” strips. There should be 15 of them.
Gently lift each strip and twist two times.
Place on cookie sheet, about 1” apart from each other.
Bake until golden brown. 450 degrees, 10-12 minutes. (Bottom browns quickly.)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 ½ tsp milk (or more)
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring
In small bowl, mix the glaze, adding enough liquid for desired thickness.
Drizzle stripes of glaze over warm biscuits. Serve warm or cooled.
