Love Knots

Recipe by Lvs2Cook

Perfect to serve for a special breakfast or brunch! If your bread machine can handle it, the dough can be mixed in the machine. Two packages of yeast is equal to 4 1/2 teaspoons of bulk yeast. This recipe is adapted from a magazine.

YUM! They were pretty time consuming but WELL worth it. I stored them overnight in a plastic bag and they were still great the next day - cold or warmed in the microwave.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand for 5 minutes. Add milk, butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Stir in enough flour to form a stiff dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top.
  3. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  4. Punch dough down; divide into three portions. Cover two portions with plastic wrap.
  5. Shape one portion into 12 balls. Roll each ball into an 8-in. rope.
  6. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip rope into melted butter, then coat with cinnamon-sugar.
  7. Tie into a knot. Tuck and pinch ends under and place on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
  8. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  9. Bake at 375° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
