Tips  

(Total time will vary; cook or bake time is per batch.)

Did you know that eggshells are less likely to splinter if they are cracked on a flat surface rather than on the edge of the mixing bowl?

Baking these cookies gives you a great reason to "play in the cookie dough." Easily make these twists by holding one end of the ropes with fingers of one hand while grasping and twisting the opposite end with the other hand, twisting three or four times. Pinch the ends of the ropes slightly after twisting to avoid spreading during baking, if you like.

Make it your way! Make Cinnamon Knots by preparing dough as directed, except use 2 teaspoonfuls dough from each half to create 6-inch ropes. Place ropes side by side; twist gently and tie into knots. Bake as directed.
