When it was time to leave Pittsburgh and head back to Maryland, I knew where I would be making an extra stop along the way. I had been to Twistedoughs the last time I drove back from Pittsburgh, and really enjoyed it. I ordered the biscuits and gravy (and a pretzel), but had my eye on the cinnamon rolls.
When I got there, I was told it was going to be about a 25 minute wait, since they were in the oven. I decided to check out The Market House and I also walked around for a bit. When they were ready, I decided to sit outside to eat. It may have been in the 20s, but I had a warm cinnamon roll and that was all that I needed. The cinnamon roll was humungous. It almost took up an entire standard sized container. It was still hot, so they gave me the icing on the side.
I have a big hand, so I tried to take this picture to show how big this cinnamon roll was.
I put some icing on it, and then took this picture (before it started to get melty). I think this picture shows off the size better. If you look at the size of the fork in the background, that should give you some perspective as to the size of this cinnamon roll. I was not able to eat this all at once. This was a two and a half meal treat for me. So waiting almost 30 minutes for this – definitely worth it. I would do it again. I would wait an hour for this. From the outer portion to the filling to the icing, this was a truly delicious cinnamon roll. This is definitely something you can share with 1, 2, or 3 other people.
I brought a pretzel home with me and had it later on. While it was not as big as the cinnamon roll, it still was a big pretzel. This is sitting on one of my big plates. The pretzel is also really good. The outer crunch is good, but I really like the inside part of the pretzel. Perfectly baked, nice layers, and tremendous flavor.
Stopping by at Twistedoughs was definitely a perfect way to cap off my week of good eating. And it was an easy way to stay in a positive frame of mind.
