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.

While you can certainly use my homemade pizza dough recipe for these cinnamon sugar knots, you can also just grab a premade pizza dough at your grocery store. The Pillsbury pizza dough always works for these little babies and has them ready for serving before they even know it!

Here’s my Cinnamon Sugar Knots recipe. I think you’ll love them!
