Ingredients

Twists

Glaze

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

Steps

  • 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
    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
    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
    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
    Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 6
    In small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until smooth, adding enough milk for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm rolls. Serve warm.
