The perfect combination of bread, butter and garlic. Great as a snack or along side dinner. These did not last long.

 

Soft Garlic Knots

Makes 10 knots

Ingredients:

3 cups flour

1 tbsp. sugar

1 envelope instant yeast

1¼ tsp. salt

2 tbsp. olive oil

¼ cup milk

1 cup plus 2 tbsp. lukewarm water

2 cloves garlic

3 tbsp. melted butter

½ tsp. Italian seasoning

Directions:

To make the dough, in the bowl combine the dry ingredients.  Add the olive oil, milk and water.  Mix until ingredients have formed a dough.  Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.  Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, turn once to coat, and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise for about 1 hour, or until doubled in bulk.

Divide the dough into 10 equal pieces.  Roll each piece into a 10-inch long rope and tie into a knot.  Take the end lying underneath the knot and bring it over the top, tucking it into the center.  Take the end lying over the knot and tuck it underneath and into the center.  Transfer shaped rolls to a baking stone, or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise for 45 minutes, until puffy. To make the glaze, finely mince the garlic or press it through a garlic press.  Mix with the melted butter and Italian seasoning. Preheat the oven to 350° F.  Brush the glaze onto the shaped rolls.  Bake until set and lightly browned, about 15-18 minutes.  Let cool slightly before serving.
