Twists

1/2
cup finely chopped pecans
3
tablespoons granulated sugar
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8
teaspoon ground nutmeg
2
cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
2
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

Glaze

1/2
cup powdered sugar
1/4
teaspoon maple flavor
2
to 3 teaspoons milk

Directions

  1. 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 1 large or 2 small cookie sheets with cooking spray, or lightly grease with shortening. In small bowl, mix pecans, granulated sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  2. 2 If using crescent rolls: Unroll both cans of dough; separate into 8 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. If using dough sheets: Unroll both cans of dough; cut to form 8 rectangles.
  3. 3 Brush each rectangle with melted butter. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon pecan-sugar mixture evenly over each rectangle; press in lightly. Starting at longer side, roll up each rectangle; pinch edges to seal.
  4. 4 With sharp knife, cut one roll in half lengthwise, forming 2 strips. With cut side up, carefully overlap strips 2 times to form twist. Press ends together to seal. Place on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. Sprinkle with any remaining pecan-sugar mixture.
  5. 5 Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. 6 In small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until smooth, adding enough milk for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm rolls. Serve warm.
