recipe: desserts

cinnamon-sugar knots

Prep Time: 10 min.

Cook Time: 15 min.

Level of Difficulty: Easy


When you start with refrigerated dough, like we did in these sugary treats, homemade dessert in under 30 minutes is a cinch.


2 tbsp sugar

tsp ground cinnamon

11 oz refrigerated bread stick dough

1 serving(s) cooking spray, butter-flavor, or enough to coat dough



1. Preheat oven to 375F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. .

2. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Mix well and set aside.

3. Unroll breadsticks and cut each in half lengthwise (to make a total of 24 pieces). Arrange pieces on prepared baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle teaspoon of cinnamon-sugar mixture over each piece. Tie each piece into a knot (pulling dough gently if necessary). Sprinkle remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture over knots.

4. Bake until puffed up and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve warm. Yields 2 knots per serving.
