Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 174 calories, 7 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 29 mg cholesterol, 136 mg sodium, 26 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 2 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand for 5 minutes. Add the milk, butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough flour to form a stiff dough.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake at 375° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 3 dozen.
