Pumpkin Pie Spice:
FOR MAKING THE KNOTS:
1 1/2tablespoonsof Pumpkin Pie Spice
1stick unsalted buttersoftened
1stick salted buttersoftened
1recipe Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
While dough is rising on the counter, preheat oven to 375 degree and make the pumpkin pie spice.
In a medium bowl, combine 1-1/2 tablespoons of the pumpkin pie and 1/2 cup sugar. Add in both sticks of softened butter and blend until thoroughly combined. Store the extra pumpkin spice for another use.
Punch down risen dough. On a floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll out a large rectangle. Spread half of the pumpkin spice butter on half of the dough in a thin even layer. Fold the other half over top of the butter side. Use a pizza cutter and divide the dough in half. Cut each half into 8 or 9 strips.
Tie each strip into a knot, tucking the ends behind the knot and place on a parchment or silicon lined sheet pan. Repeat with remaining strips.
Bake knots in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until light golden brown in color. Mean while melt the remaining spiced butter in a small saucepan over low heat until melted.
Generously brush freshly baked knots with melted butter using a pastry brush. Serve warm and enjoy!
