To make the knots

Roll the dough into a rectangle on a floured surface. Spread the filling and smooth off the top. Fold the dough into thirds. Cut into 2 cm wide strips. Cut a slit in the middle of each strip so that it still holds together at one side. Intertwine the two parts to form a knot. Place into buttered muffin tins and let rise for 30 minutes. Brush with egg and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake in the middle of the oven on the hot air setting at 240 °C for 8–10 minutes.
