The sweet citrus glaze and classic knot shape have made Orange Knots a top Rhodes recipe that is requested again and again.

Prep Time: 10 min (not including thaw time)
Bake Time: 15-20 min
Servings: 12
Skills: Beginning


  1. 12 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
    1 medium orange rind, grated
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 cup butter, melted

    Citrus Glaze:
    1 cup powdered sugar
    1 tablespoon butter, melted
    3 tablespoons orange juice
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Mix grated orange rind with sugar. Roll each roll into a 9-inch rope. Tie in a loose knot.

Roll each knot in melted butter and then in rind/sugar mixture. Place on a large sprayed baking sheet. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let double in size.

Remove wrap. Bake at 350°F 15-20 minutes. Remove from pan and place on cooling rack.

Brush with citrus glaze while still warm.

These are SO good! They do take a little longer than the prep time says. I would give it 20 minutes to assemble and roll them out. SO worth it, though!
