Pumpkin Spice Knots


I N G R E D I E N T S

Dough

  • 4 1/4 cups of bread flour
  • 1 1/2 cup of warm milk (100°F-106°F is good. I used soy.)
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast
  • 4 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 egg

Filling

  • 4 tablespoons of softened butter
  • 4 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar

D I R E C T I O N S

  1. In the bowl of a standing mixer, combine the milk, sugar, and yeast. Let sit for 5 minutes until foamy.
  2. Add in the flour, salt, egg, and melted butter. Using the dough hook attachment, knead on low speed for 5 minutes.
  3. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and let the dough rise in a warm, draft free space for an hour.
  4. Weigh and separate the dough into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 4″x12″ rectangle.
  5. Combine the filling ingredients into a paste, and evenly spread a dollop onto each rectangle of dough.
  6. Roll the dough lenghwise, and cut the log in half, lengthwise. Twist the two ropes together, and tie the twist in a knot. Tuck in the ends. After all 8 knots are formed, let rise for another 20 minutes before baking in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes. Eggwash is optional, but I always do it.
  7. While hot out of the oven, sprinkle extra cinnamon sugar on the buns for extra sparkle.
