Pepperoni Cheese Knots

I have a fantastic recipe to share with you today.  I made these for the kids in my family, but the adults went crazy for them too.  These Pepperoni Cheese Knots are really really yummy.  

Big soft and chewy rolls that are stuffed with warm melty cheese and pepperoni.  There is something so satisfying about pulling these cheesy knots apart, dipping them into pizza sauce and devouring them.  I like to sprinkle a little garlic powder over the top for some added flavor, but if your kids don't care for the garlic powder, just leave it off.    

Let me show you how easy these are to make.  
First, get all of your ingredients ready.  You need thawed Rhodes Texas Rolls, pizza sauce, mini pepperoni, shredded cheese, a little melted butter (not pictured) and some garlic powder.  
Combine two Texas rolls and flatten into roughly a 8''x3'' rectangle.  Fill the center with shredded cheese and mini pepperoni. 
Fold up sides and pinch together to seal, cross one side over the other and tie into a knot. 
Place all of the knots on a greased baking sheet.  Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with a little garlic powder.  Cover lightly with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray and allow to rise for 30 minutes.      
Remove plastic wrap and bake in a preheated oven until golden brown.  
Pull apart and dip into pizza sauce.  Enjoy.

24 Rhodes Texas Rolls, thawed but still cold  
1 c. mini pepperoni slices
1 1/2 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
1 Tbl. unsalted butter, melted
1/4 tsp. garlic powder, opt.
pizza sauce, for serving 

Place frozen rolls in a 9x13-inch baking pan, cover and allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 8-10 hours).  When ready, combine two thawed rolls.  Spray counter and hands lightly with cooking spray and press combined rolls into a rough 8''x3'' rectangle.  Fill the center with about 2 Tablespoons of shredded cheese and a heaping Tablespoon of mini pepperoni.

Fold up sides and pinch together to seal, cross one side over the other and tie into a knot.  Place on a greased cookie sheet.  Repeat.  You will have 12 knots total.  Brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle with a little garlic powder.  Cover lightly with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray and allow to rise for 30 minutes.      

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Remove plastic wrap and bake for 20 minutes or until top is golden brown.  Serve with pizza sauce.

  2. Do you know that your link for the recipe does not go anywhere? I made these as a Christmas present 2 yrs ago for my son who loved them. I never got to taste them. I wanted to make them for myself 2 months later and could not find this page after HOURs of looking I gave up and tried to do it from memory I did something wrong they were doughy inside. Last yr I again could not find this page. This yr I found this page and think I can try winging it again BECAUSE your actual recipe can not be found as the link does not go anywhere. Can you please post this recipe. I am making these for Christmas and if they don't work out ill be minus the gift.
