This pretty almond twist bread is easy to make, flaky, and delicious!

The chillier months are ahead of us and I will be spending lots of time in my kitchen baking. Whether I host or I am invited to a get-together,  I usually offer something homemade. And almost every time it turns out to be a dessert. Who doesn’t love dessert, right? I am back today with a simple dessert recipe that you can easily whip up for an upcoming family gathering or holiday party. 

This pretty Almond Twist is soft and tasty with a delicate almond flavor. It’s filled with an almond paste which can be easily made and sweetened to your taste buds.

You can serve this delish dessert warm for breakfast or serve it fancy at your next party!

The recipe may sound more complicated at first but don’t let that trick you! Give it a go! The pastry consistency is fantastic if you wait long enough to let the dough rise to double size. That’s key to this recipe.
