Taco Bell Cinnamon Twists (Angel Wings)


  • 5 large eggs yolks, well beaten
  • 5 Tbsp sour cream
  • 5 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


Combine all, adding each ingredient as listed, and enough flour so that the dough is no longer sticky, but still very soft. 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.

In a deep, heavy saucepan, bring oil (at least 3 inches deep) to 400° F. 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). Lift out with tongs and drop into large grocery bag containing about 16 oz of confectioners' sugar.
