Garlic Knots

  • 1 c. Warm Water

  • 1 pkg. or 1 Tb Active Dry Yeast

  • 2 tsp. Sugar

  • 1/2 tsp. Salt

  • 1 Tbs Olive Oil

  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder

  • 2 – 2 1/2 cups flour (Bread flour works best, but all-purpose flour will work as well.)

  • Garlic Topping

  • 2 Tbs. olive oil

  • 2 Tbs. butter, melted

  • 2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp. parsley

  • Sprinkle of Parmesan cheese

  • Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and let rest/proof for about 10 min.

  • Add the sugar.

  • Combine the flour, garlic powder, and salt in a separate bowl.

  • Add the olive oil and yeast mixture to the flour mixture.

  • Beat well until a soft dough ball has formed. Knead for a few minutes until smooth and elastic.

  • Place dough in a large greased bowl.

  • Cover with a cloth and place in a warm place to rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

  • Take a small pinch of the dough and roll into a rope about 5 inches long and ½ inch thick.

  • Tie the rope into a knot and place on greased baking sheet.

  • Repeat until you have used up all the dough, and your baking sheet is full of dough knots.

  • Let the dough rest in a warm place until nearly doubled in volume (about 30 minutes)

  • Preheat oven to 400° F. Bake for approx. 12-15 min. or until golden.

  • While knots are baking, make garlic topping

  • After removing knots from oven, while still warm, either brush with garlic coating, or place knots in a large bowl and toss with garlic coating.
