Cinnamon Love Knots Recipe at
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand for 5 minutes. Add milk, butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Stir in enough flour to form a stiff dough.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours.

Punch dough down; divide into three portions. Cover two with plastic wrap. Shape one portion into 12 balls. Roll each ball into an 8-in. rope.

Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip rope into melted butter, then coat with cinnamon-sugar.

Tie into a knot. Tuck and pinch ends under and place on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.

Cinnamon Love Knots
My Mom made a variation of these growing up we called Stickey Buns. Omit the cinnamon and dipping the rope in butter. Form the knots, place in sprayed baking dish, sprinkle heavily with brown sugar, drizzle with melted butter,cover, let rise in the frige overnight, preheat oven to 350* Sprinkle heavily again with brown sugar and melted butter bake 30 min. My husband always mentions these would be really good with cinnamon, but then they wouldn't be Stickey Buns, would they?
