Cinnamon Nut Twists

2 tubes of refrigerated crescent rolls (like the Pilsbury Doughboy ones found next to the dairy section in the grocery store – get reduced-fat ones if you can)

Stick margarine (preferably reduced-fat as well)

Brown sugar

Cinnamon

Walnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Finely chop walnuts
  3. Unroll both tubes of dough. Press perforations and seams together to form two rectangles. Spread with 2 Tbsp of stick margarine. Combine 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1 Tbsp of cinnamon. Sprinkle over dough. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup of walnuts.
  4. Fold each rectangle in half, starting from a short side. Cut into 8 strips. Twist each strip. Tie into a knot. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Serve warm.

Excellent served with a hot cup of coffee or cold cup of milk!
