Directions:
In bottom of large roasting pan put 1/4 pound butter cut into  pieces and distributed. Then Spread 1 box brown sugar over bottom of pan with nuts and a small amount of water to moisten sugar.   In large bowl place 1 box brown sugar, cinnamon, nut meat and raisin. In another large bowl place 3/4 cup warm water and 1/4 pound butter.  Then cut bread into strips ( I tear and pull it) to about 5-6 inches long. dip bread dough fist in warm water mixture, then roll in brown sugar mixture.  Tie in a knot and place in pan. Place  in warm place and let rise until pans are full and dough has doubled.  Bake in 400ºF oven for about 25 minutes, (timing varies with each oven and size of  rolls you have) when you remove rolls from oven take 1 roll from center part of pan test it to see if it springs back when touched. If not put back and bake a few more minutes. If the roll does spring bake turn pan of rolls immediately our on a flat surface previously covered with waxed paper. Caramel will say soft and so will rolls if covered with waxed paper then a couple of dish towels as soon as rolls are cold.

Personal Notes:
This recipe makes 2 cast iron skillets of rolls or 1 large roasting pan of rolls ( I use the roasting pan), These Cinnamon Knots are a very fond memory for me as I grew up.
