Pecan & Maple Cinnamon Twist

Prep: 8 Serves: 25 Minutes

With festive flavors in every mouthful, our St Pierre maple and pecan cinnamon twist puts a festive spin on a holiday classic.


1 St Pierre Cinnamon Twist
200g mascarpone cheese
30g butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
60g maple syrup
75g icing sugar

For the Maple Candied Pecans

100g pecan nuts
1tbs salted butter (or unsalted and a pinch of salt)
1tbs caster sugar
1-2 tbs maple syrup


  1. First, make the candied pecans. Put a piece of baking parchment onto a baking tray. Toast the pecan nuts in a frying pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, ensuring they don’t burn. Add the butter, sugar and maple syrup and cook for another 2- 3 minutes then tip onto the paper-lined tray to cool
  2. Make the frosting by beating the mascarpone and butter with an electric hand whisk for a couple of minutes until soft and light then beat in the vanilla, maple syrup. Add the icing sugar and stir in with a spoon to roughly incorporate then beat again with the whisk for a few seconds
  3. Roughly chop most of the candied pecans, keeping a few whole. Slice the Cinnamon Twist horizontally into 3 then spread the frosting over the base and middle sections, sprinkle both with the chopped nuts then place on the top half
  4. Cut into slices and serve with the rest of the nuts on the side
