Buttons And Bowknots

Don't forget to sign up for my Giveaway! You can find the rules here!

This recipe is from my favorite Betty Crocker Cookbook. I've always wanted to make them and finally got around to trying them. They were fun to make, and I love the touch of nutmeg in them. The kids loved them!

Buttons and Bowknots

2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
1 egg

1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Whisk the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the egg and milk and mix just until it comes together. Knead 5 times on a floured surface. Pat out to 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a donut cutter. To make Bowknots, hold opposite sides of each ring with finger and twist to form figure "8." Place "holes" (buttons) and Bowknots on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately after baking, dip each Button and Bowknot into melted butter, then role in sugar.
