Here is what you will need:

Rhodes frozen dinner rolls (I thawed out 15 which will make 30 knots)

1/2 stick of butter melted

1/2 C sugar

2 t cinnamon

1/4 t nutmeg

1/4 t ground clove


1. Thaw dinner rolls in a greased bowl. (Easy, just place bowl in fridge overnight)

2. Cut rolls in half with scissors.

3. On a sheet of waxed paper (makes for easy cleanup), sprinkle a bit of flour. Stretch the dough into a long piece and knot together. I just pressed the dough longways until it was “knotable” (I’m so technical huh?!?!). Combine the sugar and spices in a small bowl.

4. Once you have all your knots, dip them in butter, then in sugar mixture, place in a 8 by 8 pan that has parchment liner.

5. Let rise an hour.

6. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.
