Garlic Knots

It really doesn’t get much easier than this for a delicious dinner roll.

  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 2 tbsp of butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 3¼ cup of flour
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp regular active dry yeast
Garlic Basil Butter
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp chopped basil
  1. In a bowl mix yeast, sugar and warm water. Stir and let sit for 10 minutes until yeast foams up.
  2. In the bowl of your mixer, mix the flour and salt together. To it, add egg, butter and yeast mixture. Mix using a dough hook attachment until it’s all well incorporated and dough forms into a ball. The dough will be a bit soft.
  3. Place the dough into a well oiled bowl, cover up with plastic wrap and let sit until doubled in size, about 1 to 2 hours.
  4. Punch down dough and knead it a bit, then cut the dough into 15 pieces. Roll each piece into long ropes about 15 inches and form into knots and place on baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  6. Mix the butter ingredients together and brush over knots. Let knots rest for another 10 minutes then bake for 9 to 12 minutes or until golden.
  7. If there’s any garlic basil butter left, brush again on knots before serving.
