Ingredients
  • Lemon Knots:
  • 12 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 12 teaspoons baking powder
  • 12 tablespoons all-vegetable shortening, such as Crisco
  • 1/2 cup 2-percent milk
  • 2 teaspoons lemon extract
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 drops cinnamon oil
  • Glaze:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk or water
Directions
  • For the lemon knots: Combine the flour, granulated sugar and baking powder together in a bowl. Add the shortening and work it into the flour.

  • Add the milk, extract, eggs and cinnamon oil in a separate bowl. Mix well. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and work with your hands until combined. The dough will be sticky to the touch.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Dust your hands with flour and roll a 5-inch rope-like log out of the dough. Make the dough log into a knot. Place the dough knot onto a cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough. Bake until firm to the touch, about 6 minutes.

  • For the glaze: Combine the powdered sugar and milk and use to glaze the lemon knots.
