  • 1 16 oz. can refrigerated biscuits
  • 3 T. butter melted
  • 2 T. granulated sugar
  • 1 T. orange zest


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 T. freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tsp. orange zest

  2. Mix granulated sugar and the 1 T. of orange zest together in a small bowl.

  3. Cut each biscuit in half and roll each half into a rope. Tie each rope in a loose knot. Tuck the ends underneath the knot. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet.

  4. Brush tops of knots with melted butter and then dip buttered tops in orange sugar mixture.

  5. Bake knots for 8-10 minutes, watching carefully so the sugar doesn’t burn.


  1. While knots are baking make an orange glaze. Mix powdered sugar, orange juice, and the remaining orange zest together.

  2. While knots are still warm brush them with orange glaze. Then let them cool for about 2-3 minutes and serve.

Recipe Notes

You can store Orange Knots in an airtight container and serve the next day. They are best warmed in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds.
