Cinnamon Knots

I was tired of the same old cinnamon roll and wanted to make something a little different. This recipe was perfect and was quick to make also. Give these a try when you are wanting to bake someting homemade for your family. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek.


2 T yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm milk
1/2 cup butter-melted and cooled
1 cup sugar
2 eggs-beaten
1 t salt
5 cups flour

Cinnamon Sugar Mixture
2 cups sugar
4 T cinnamon
Mix sugar and cinnamon together for later
3/4 cup butter-melted

In your Kitchen Aid Mixer bowl, add yeast to the warm water. Let stand for 5 minutes now add warm milk, butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Beat until smooth. Mix in enough flour to form a soft dough. Keep kneading in the bowl for 8 minutes. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 2 hours. Should double in size. Now punch dough down and divide into 20 balls. Roll each of the balls into a rope and then dip into melted butter and then tie into a knot. Now place on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar mixture. Continue this with each ball of dough. Once you are done, cover and let rise for 45 minutes. Now bake in a pre-heated 325' oven and bake for 15 minutes. Eat hot from the oven.
