I started to call them cinnamon sugar love knots, but then Little Buddy told me that that name just wouldn’t be too cool for him to ask for me to make when his buddies were over. After a few minutes, I saw his point and decided to drop “love” from the official name. Just know that in my mind, the word is still in there. Ha!

For these cinnamon sugar knots, I started with pizza dough that I rolled out and then cut into 1 1/2-inch wide strips by about 6-inch in length. Then, I simply tied each of the strips into a quick knot, brushed them with a bit of melted butter and sprinkled them liberally with cinnamon sugar.

  1. This is a great idea for the extra pizza dough I have in the freezer! If I put it in the fridge I think I might have these for Sunday Brunch!!!!!!!! Thanks so much! I think some caramel dipping sauce will be really good or I have raspberry sauce left over.

  2. Making these tomorrow morning for workers who are coming to the house.
    PLEASE tell me I’ll be able to have a Add a Pinch Cookbook in my kitchen one day!
