I mentioned that we made personal pizzas on Sunday for dinner. Well, I overestimated a little and had over two dozen extra dough rolls that we didn’t use. Since they were already thawed out, I decided to go ahead and put them to good use. I went to the Rhodes Rolls website, and found an easy recipe suggestion for Sweet Knots:
1. Roll the dough into a rope.
2. Roll rope in melted butter
3. Roll in sugar
4. Tie rope into a knot
5. Fold edges under and place dough into a greased muffin tin.
6. Let dough rise until double in size
7. Bake at 350ºF for about 13 minutes, or until deeply golden brown. Remove from pan immediately, and let each roll cool on cooing rack.
They’re sweet and flavorful inside and out, without using extra butter or sugar. One precaution: there is such a thing as too much of the butter/sugar combo. If loaded on too heavily, it creates a thick glaze that makes the bread tough to chew. Still, be generous with these ingredients.
What do you do when you have leftover dough?
