  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix together cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar in a small bowl.

    Cut the dough vertically into 1 1/2 to 2 inch strips. Twist each strip, fold them in half, twist a few more times, then tie into a knot. Place dough knots on a parchment lined baking sheet and put into the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

    When knots finish baking, evenly distribute the glaze onto each one and enjoy.
