Taco Bell Style Cinnamon Twists

8 Comments

Finally the copycat recipe for Taco Bell's amazing cinnamon twists is here! Now you can make your own delectable cinnamon treats. You don't have to go through the drive-thru for these delicious cinnamon twists.

Ingredients
  • 5 large eggs yolks, well beaten
  • 5 tablespoons sour cream
  • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Instructions
  1. Combine all, adding each ingredient as listed, and enough flour so that the dough is no longer sticky, but still very soft.
     
  2. Using a floured working surface, roll small portions of dough at a time to paper-thin, cut into 2 x 5-inch strips and arrange in single layer on oiled cookie sheets.
     
  3. In a deep, heavy saucepan, bring oil (at least 3 inches deep) to 400 degrees F.
     
  4. Before dropping dough into oil, make a 1-inch slit down center of each and draw the opposite ends of the strip through the slit. They'll fall to the bottom but will surface as they brown (about 2 minutes).
     
  5. Lift out with tongs and drop into large grocery bag containing about 16 ounces of confectioners' sugar.
Notes

A former employee of Taco Bell tells me that they simply deep fried spiral noodles, then shook them in a cinnamon sugar mixture. They puff up while they're cooking.

DO NOT USE REGULAR ROTINI MACARONI!!!! I know what they use since I have some from a relative's store (not a taco bell). They look like macaroni, but it is a freeze dried product that puffs up almost instantly in oil. I take some home once in a while to make for the kids, they get a kick out of watching them puff up. I brown macaroni in oil for middle eastern pasta and rice dishes and can assure you they do not EVER puff up, just turn brown. I haven't tried the recipe, but it looks like it'll work. I'd rather not go through all the trouble though.

This is a recipe for the kolaczki ("angel wings") , not cinnamon twists.

I have a relative that has worked there for years, they are made with the spiral macaroni noodles, they deep fry them then shake them around in cinnamon sugar. Thats it!

AUNT MAC Jan. 8,2012 You can also use wontons. Both the small and the large square ones can be cut in half, put a slit in the center and pull one of the end through. After frying mix with cinnamon sugar.

Just one comment . If this is supposed to be a recipe for Cinnamon Twists, where in the recipe is the cinnamon. There is no meniton of cinnamon except at the very bottom in the Notes and that has no bearing on the recipe you are highlighting

the deep frying of the spiral noodles is totally true i also use to work at taco bell and its the easiest way to make these with after making the noodles let them draw out some on a paper towel mean while put together your cinnamon and white sugar mix well and if you have it put in a spare salt shaker or pepper one just make sure its clean and you can adjust the wholes in the top and shake it over your noodles to your desired coverage... so easy to do... and taste great... enjoy

I also worked at Taco Bell for a while and the former employee is right. It's so easy. Just deep fry the spiral noodles and mix some cinnamon and sugar together in a large bowl with a lid and shake. You can also take flour tortillas and cut into wedges and fix the same way for more of a chip treat.
