Easy Homemade Garlic Knots

Making knots is a thrifty way to use scraps of dough and the leftover garlic-butter-parsley sauce most pizzerias would use for their white pizzas or garlic bread.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups warm water
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. yeast
  • 3½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp Salt

Garlic spread:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive oil

Directions

1.  Mix warm water, sugar and yeast together.  Let that sit for 5 minutes.
2. Add flour and salt to the water, sugar, and yeast.  Mix this until smooth and let it raise for 10 minutes.  I used my kitchenaid mixer with the dough hook and it was so easy and worked great!
3.  On a floured surface, roll your dough out about 1/2 inch thick.  I used a pizza cutter to cut the dough in half and then in strips (about 8-10 inches) for the garlic knots.
4.  Roll the strips in your hands to look like ropes and then tie in knots.
5.  Place the knots on a greased baking sheet and allow them to rise for another 10 minutes.
6.  Bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.
7.  While they are baking melt the butter and mix with garlic powder, parsley, and a drizzle of olive oil.  As soon as the garlic knots come out of the oven, brush the tops with the butter garlic mixture.
