Cinnamon twists

I love the scent of cinnamon in the morning!!!!
...easy as usual...

2/3 cup brown sugar (150 mL)
1/3 cup butter (75 mL)
1 tsp cinnamon (5 mL)
2 cups all-purpose flour (500 mL)
4 tsp baking powder (20 mL)
1 tbsp granulated sugar (15 mL)
1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
1/4 cup butter or shortening (50 mL)
2/3 cup milk (150 mL)

In small saucepan or microwave bowl, combine brown sugar and butter and cook over medium heat until mixture bubbles. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon.
In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter or shortening with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk to make a soft dough.
 Put your dough on the countertop and knead about 10 times. Roll into a 12 x 8 inch (30 x 20 cm) rectangle. Spread the brown sugar mixture on top of the rectangle. Cut it into long strips and twist each strip into desired shapes, then place on well-greased baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 375°.
