Garlic Knots

23 Mar

Ingredients:    yields about 1 dozen knots

  • Pizza Dough (see my recipe for Everyday Pizza Dough)
  • 6 Tb butter, salted
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tb fresh parsley, minced
  • 1/8 tsp garlic salt
  • Kosher Salt
  • grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Flour for dusting a work surface

Lightly flour your counter or work surface. Take golf ball size pieces of dough and roll them between your fingers and your work surface or counter working from the inside to the outside form a rope that is about 1/2″ in diameter. Tie the ropes in a knot and place on a pizza stone or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Once they are all tied let them rest for 20 minutes before baking. In a small sauce pan over medium low heat melt the butter than add the garlic, parsley and garlic salt.  While stirring, cook for a couple of minutes so that the flavors blend. Remove from heat for use.

Preheat oven to 400. Bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned. While the knots are still hot brush them generously with the butter mixture, then sprinkle lightly with kosher salt and generously sprinkle the grated Parmesan Cheese over them.

Suggestions:  Serve these with warmed pizza sauce or cool ranch dressing for dipping. Try these with a nice tossed salad. There are great with any type of soup…or just serve them as a snack.
