1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated French bread dough (such as Pillsbury Crusty French Loaf)
All-purpose flour
Parchment paper
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans


Hands-on: 15 Minutes
Total: 35 Minutes

Preheat oven to 350°. Remove French bread dough from package; lightly sprinkle with flour. Cut dough in half crosswise; cut each half lengthwise into 4 strips to form 8 (8-inch) strips total. Roll strips to 12-inch lengths; gently tie each strip in a knot. Arrange knots on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Combine honey and melted butter. Brush honey mixture over dough; sprinkle with pecans. Bake at 350° for 16 minutes or until knots are golden.
