Cinnamon Knot Rolls

The Dough

How to Shape..

  1. Roll a ball of dough into a 10-inch rope.
  2. Criss-cross the ends creating a loop.
  3. Wrap the top piece around the back, and through the center of the loop, creating a single knot.
  4. Wrap the end of the piece coming through the center around towards the back. Then pull the end from behind up and over, tucking the tail into the hole in the center.

Coating the Rolls in Cinnamon Sugar

Once you’ve shaped all the knots:

The Coating:

6 Tbsp butter, melted

 1/4 cup light brown sugar, gently packed

 1/4 cup granulated sugar

 2 tsp ground cinnamon

-Dip each knot in the melted butter; coating all sides.

-Then dip in the cinnamon-sugar mixture; coating all sides.

-Next put them back on the pan and let them rise for 15-20 minutes

-Bake @ 375 for 12-15 minutes

Last but not Least... 


Icing is optional since the rolls are already coated in cinnamon sugar. but it adds a delicious touch! 

To make the icing: Whisk together the melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk, to desired consistency. Drizzle over warm rolls and enjoy! These cinnamon knots are best eaten immediately.
