Pin It

Today's recipe is so quick,easy and a perfect little breakfast treat - Glazed Chai Twists.  Have you heard of seamless crescent roll sheets?  Are they new?  I originally wanted the canned breadsticks and Target did not have them or maybe they don't exist any longer - but...

This is the first recipe I've ever made with the spice cardamom.  It's hard to describe the taste but it is part of the ginger family.  The combination of all these spices was amazing.

Do you have kiddos who like to help in the kitchen?  This would be a fun recipe for them to take part in!
