I’m wrapping up #CookoutWeek 2018 with a delicious treat. If you love cinnamon rolls, these 30 minute cinnamon sugar knots will not disappoint! They’re perfect for breakfast, dessert or a mid-afternoon snack. I was in the mood to do some baking and after sampling my fair share of Honey Butter from Chef Shamy, I know it would perfect to use in these knots. It really pumped up the honey and cinnamon sugar.
If you have never experimented with yeast before, this is great recipe to start with. You’ll use instant yeast and the time for rising is only 10 minutes. You’ll get a little messy with rolling the dough in the butter and cinnamon sugar, but it’s not fun baking unless you’re making a bit of a mess! 🙂

1/4 cup Honey Butter
1 cup milk
1 packet instant yeast
2 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
3 to 3 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup Honey Butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
1 heaping Tbsp ground cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1-3 Tbsp milk
In a small saucepan, melt the honey butter. Add in the milk and heat mixture to 100-110 degrees Fahrenheit. In the bowl of a stand mixer with a dough hook, add the yeast and honey. When the milk is at temperature, add it to the mixer bowl and mix to combine. Add in the salt and egg and mix again. Add in 2 1/2 cups of flour and mix. Add in another 1/2 cup of flour and mix until the dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl and forms a dough ball. You may need to add a little more flour to get the dough to the correct texture.
Line a 9×13 baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Transfer the dough to a lightly flour dusted surface and divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll the dough into a rope 8 inches long. Melt the butter in a shallow bowl. Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a wide, shallow bowl and set aside. Roll the dough in the butter and then into the cinnamon sugar. Knot the dough – make a circle and then make a knot. Take the loose ends and put them through the center of the hole and press the ends together. Place on the prepared baking sheet with the end side down. Continue with the remaining dough. Cover the dough with a clean towel and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly golden brown. While the knots are baking, prepare the icing. Mix together all the ingredients and add the amount of milk until it reaches your desired consistency. Once the knots are cooked, drizzle the icing over the knots. Serve them warm.
