    Start your morning with something dangerously delish…

    Wrap your taste buds around this doughnut inspired breakfast pastry-- flaky dough knots stuffed with strawberries and cream cheese, then topped with a sweet glaze and colorful sprinkles.

    Here’s how to make Strawberry Cream Cheese Dough Knots:

    Gather your ingredients. You’ll need crescent roll dough, cream cheese spread, freeze-dried strawberry slices, butter, powdered sugar and sprinkles…lots of colorful sprinkles.

    Unroll crescent dough into 1 large rectangle. Firmly press perforations to seal. Shape into 12x8-inch rectangle. Cut crosswise into 8 strips (1 1/2x8 inches each). Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons cream cheese down center of each strip.

    Top cream cheese with freeze-dried strawberry slices. Break larger strawberry slices in half to fit on dough. (Freeze-dried strawberries are crisp and light. They will hydrate and soften during baking.) Fold dough over lengthwise to encase filling; press edge to seal in filling, forming each strip into long filled rope.

    Tie ropes of dough into knots.

    Place knots on large ungreased cookie sheet. Brush knots with melted butter. Bake in a to 375°F oven 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

    For the glaze, mix powdered sugar and hot water until smooth. Spread glaze over each warm knot. Immediately after glazing the dough knots, sprinkle them with polka-dot sprinkles or multicolored candy sprinkles.

    These fun and flaky dough knots are best served warm. Break them open and eat them up.
