Wow! These are a sweet tooth's delight. They are so good and I loved how tender the insides were and the glaze was ever so good! I am sharing it with my friends at work. It never hurts to spread a good recipe along!

These are better than cinnamon buns! The sour cream makes a lovely light and soft twist, and with the drizzle...heavenly! Fun and easy to make. Looking forward to sharing these gems with my family when they visit. DH hummed through his first one and wanted more. Thank you Mimi for sharing your keeper recipe!

Breakfast will never be the same now that I found these little morsels of deliciousness! My husband and I indulged before the kids got to them and we had 2 each! What a great pastry and you know we will indulge in these yummy sweet twists now that I know how to make them!

How could I resist these since I love dessert for breakfast! They are so delicious and a new favorite thing to have for breakfast to change things up for us. My husband adores them too, so when I make them up they are gone in no time!
