Cinnamon & Sugar Knots (Dairy Free Option)
  • ½ cup of warm water
  • 1¼ teaspoons quick rise yeast
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil (may use butter or vegetable oil also)
  • ½ Tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ Tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Topping:
  • 1½ tablespoon olive oil or melted salted butter
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Add warm water & yeast to bread machine or mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients starting with the flour.
  2. Set your bread machine to dough cycle if your using a bread machine. Or use a stand mixer with dough hook to knead the bread or mix the dough by hand for about 15 minutes until dough becomes a soft elastic like ball. Add more flour or water if needed to get the right consistency.
  3. Cover and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  4. Roll out on floured surface to a 6x8 inches rectangle (I use a rolling pin).
  5. Cut 1 inch thick strips, so each stick should be about 1x4 inches. Flour lightly & tie each strip into a knot, tucking ends under (I use a pizza cutter to cut the strips).
  6. Place onto greased cookie sheet
  7. Let rise for 30-40 minutes
  8. Preheat oven to 375 F. degrees
  9. Brush knots with oil mixture or butter. Dip or sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar mix.
  10. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until light golden brown.
