Jordan Cinnamon Love Knots
This is the homemade version, from scratch. . However, if you are lazy and proud of it ;) , you might want to
refer to my original recipe for love knots
which you could pretty much make with your eyes closed.
For the Jordan Love Knots:
solid vegetable shortening
all purpose flour
stick butter or margarine
melted (plus more for brushing baked rolls with)
like a baby’s bath temperature, this is key with working with yeast
For the Cinnamon Sugar Mixture:
1/2 cup butter or margarine
For the Quick Icing:
Place sugar, salt, 2 cups of flour, and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Cut in shortening with a long tined fork.
Add eggs, beating lightly with fork before stirring them in. Add remaining flour, melted butter, and water. Stir together well. Mixture will look like a big old lumpy blob.
Cover with a dish towel and let sit in a warm place for twenty minutes.
While that is rising, mix additional one cup sugar and 1 Tablespoon cinnamon together in bowl. Melt butter or margarine in the microwave in a separate bowl. Set these aside.
After twenty minutes, turn out onto a floured surface. Sprinkle flour over the top and knead three or four times.
Pinch off six balls about one inch in size and roll them out into worms. Dip each one in melted butter and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Tie into a knot and place on a greased baking sheet or pan.
Cut remaining dough up into squares with pizza cutter and place in greased 8×8 pan. Cover love knots and rolls with towels and place in warm place to rise another twenty minutes.
Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes, or until tops are golden.
Meanwhile, stir up ingredients for quick icing in a bowl until well-blended. Serve it drizzled over your love knots or on the side.
