Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, vegetable oil and vanilla using an electric mixer on medium speed. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt, Gradually stir into the mixture by hand using a large spoon. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead to make a soft elastic dough, about 5 minutes. Cover the dough and let rest at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. Break off small pieces of dough and roll into small ropes about 4 inches long and 1/4 inch wide. Twist the ropes into loose knots or braids. place them 1 inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. When cool, frost with a simple confectioners' glaze.

My x-mother-in-law would always bake knots and it has been twenty-five years since I have been divorced and have not eaten these cookies. I made them and they are the same cookies and came out perfectly. I sure mixed not knowing how to make them. I added a lb container of fruit cake mix after I kneaded the dough and I didn't even have to frost them.

I baked these yesterday, i went with the recipe exactly..... they were lotsa fun for me and my 4yr old daughter to roll and shape. they were a bit dry and not as sweet as i thought they would be, but maybe thats how its supposed to be.... so i made a choc glaze, and drizzled that over, they are devine now, i made about 50, and now there are about 10 left. lol thanks

This recipe was very good. It took a little while to make, but my eight year old daughter helped, and we had a great time! We took some of the dough and rolled it into balls and stuck Hershey's Kisses in the middle. All of my children loved those. Thank you Susan!
