Cinnamon Knots

Make your own cinnamon rolls and tie them in knots for a twist on the traditional. 

Cinnamon Knots

We love the cold weather, for a couple days!  Then after the sledding and snow angels come the cold fingers and toes.  My kids are back in the house and "bored".  My 7 year old was "Sooo Bored" last Saturday. I wanted to make this fun recipe for the blog and thought it would be perfect to have her help me. (Little did I know how independent she was and wanted to do most of it by herself.)  I set her up at the table.  She needed very simple ingredients and it was a simple recipe.  I put the recipe on the ipad and let her read the recipe (reading practice!) and follow the directions. (I opened Rhodesbread.com)

 


Warm up some bellies with these delicious Cinnamon Knots.

Ingredients

12 Rhodes Texas™ Rolls, thawed but still cold
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted

 

 

Warm up some bellies with these delicious Cinnamon Knots.

Instructions

Mix cinnamon with sugar. Roll each roll into a 9-inch rope. Tie in a loose knot. Roll each knot in melted butter and then cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place in a sprayed muffin tin. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let double in size. Remove wrap. Bake at 350°F 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan and place on a cooling rack. Brush with icing while still warm.

Marlie mixed up the cinnamon and Sugar.  I helped her melt the butter.

She then started to roll the dough into her 9 inch rope. She was very thorough and dug out a ruler. Very cute!

Next we tied them in "KNOTS" actual knots!  This was very fun for her.

Dipped the knots in butter and cinnamon sugar... she was loving every minute of this activity!  (I was trying to take pictures and couldn't keep up with her)

Then you place the Knots in a sprayed muffin pan.  Cover with plastic wrap and let rise.  We put ours in a warm area of the kitchen to help them rise faster.  Marlie was dying to get them in the oven! (This took about an hour)

Now bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 min. While baking we made the Icing.

Icing:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2-3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Finally they are done!  (It really didn't take long, But to a 7 year old...holy cow!)

Take the Cinnamon Knots from the oven and immediately place on a cooling rack.

Helpful Hint, Spay your muffin tins really good.  The Cinnamon and Sugar gets sticky.  We only had one that stuck. We picked it out with a fork and ate it as we dug it out.

This was a great recipe, a great activity!  We will definitely be baking again soon.
