Garlic Knots - Fragrant and Beautiful!

I've been making the "same old garlic rolls" for years......they've always been requested and enjoyed by family and guests. I'm always on the look-out for new recipes and new ways of doing things, though, so when I came upon this recipe, it intrigued me.......easy, yet it had a twist.  A group of friends were going to join us for the evening, so it seemed the perfect opportunity to try them. 

As I pulled them out of the oven, my hubby rushed into the kitchen and grabbed one, gobbled it down....then went to grab another.....he then got slapped on the hand - LOL!! I had to have SOMETHING to put on the table. I took his enthusiasm as a "thumbs up" on this recipe. 

They are fragrant, beautiful and VERY tasty! 

Garlic Knots

3/4 Cup warm water
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp or 1 Packet Red Star Platinum yeast 
2 3/4 + Cups unbleached flour

1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. melted butter               
2 cloves garlic, finely crushed

2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley

Mix bread ingredients according to the instructions on the EZ DOH bucket. Add one or two tablespoons more water as needed if dough is very stiff. After 1st rise, divide the dough into 15-20 even-sized pieces. On a lightly-oiled board with lightly oiled hands, roll each piece into 5” rope. Tie into a knot and place on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet.. Cover and let rise briefly. Bake in preheated 400 oven for 12-15 minutes, until golden. While the knots are baking, combine the baste ingredients and warm until garlic is softened. Add chopped parsley. While rolls are warm, baste. Cool.



  1. The water measurement seems a little bit confusing!

    1. Thanks for pointing that out to us. We reviewed the recipe, and made a few changes so that it is easier to read. When we purchased the business last month, we decided to keep all the existing recipes....and review them as necessary. Hope your garlic knots turned out well for you!
