1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm milk
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar 
2 eggs, beaten

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water Let stand for 5 minutes. Add milk, butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Stir in enough flour to form stiff dough. Turn into 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. 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 baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy! Yield: 3 dozen

Recipe from Country Craves.

These were so amazingly deliciously good!!  I devoured them.  No, not a good thing, so maybe I shouldn't make them so then I won't be such a pig!!  They are the best fresh and warm, but they are still good later, but best warmed in the microwave for a bit if you have them later.  Everyone LOVED them.  You should most definitely try them!! 

Link up your recipes and review below.
Tomorrow and Friday I have finals and I need to study and finish some projects, so I better get going . . .  Have a great day!!
