These garlic knots bake beautifully and are perfectly soft and fluffy, with a crisp golden crust on top.
Now onto the recipe!
These garlic knots are made from scratch but, they can be made with frozen pizza dough, frozen dinner rolls or even buttermilk biscuits.
Preparation is super easy. Begin by proofing the yeast. Once the yeast activates (frothy and bubbly), go ahead with the recipe. If the yeast fails to do so, please discard and start over.
After the yeast activates, combine flour, salt, oil, and yeast, and then add milk/water. Mix it together and form a soft pliable dough. Cover and let it rest for 1-2 hours.
After the rise, the next step is to work on the dough. Dust the counter with flour, punch down te dough.
Why punch down the dough?
Punching down collapses the dough and releases all the gas bubbles formed by the yeast during the rest period. This reinvigorates the yeast cells and bread baked after deflating the risen dough produces a more tender and finer crumb.
Punching down technically enhances the flavor of the finished bread.
After punching the dough, you can knead and shape the dough into desired shapes.
Shape the dough like knots and brush the knots with garlic butter (recipe is given below). Sprinkle some dried parsley and bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until the top is light brown.
Remove from oven, give it a fresh coat of butter and your very own garlic knots are ready!
Soft, buttery garlic knots tastes great when fresh out of the oven!
