Easy Cinnamon Knots (Handmade Teacher Gift)

Tracie at CleverlyInspired
Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 25 minutes
Servings 30


  • 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


  • Thaw dinner rolls in a greased bowl. (Easy, just place bowl in fridge overnight)
  • Cut rolls in half with scissors.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cover loosely and let rise an hour.
  • Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.
