    1. In mixer bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water (110°F – 115°F). Sprinkle yeast over; stir in 1 1/2 cups raisins. Let stand until thin layer of foam covers surface, about 5 minutes.

    5. Combine cinnamon with sugar and sprinkle over all. Top each with second sheet.
    6. Cut each stack into 8 strips. Fasten ends together securely and twist.
    7. Brush with oil and roll in cinnamon sugar.
    8. Arrange on oiled baking sheet. Repeat until all dough is used.
    9. Bake at 450°F for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
