Description: Hand knotted dough baked till crusty and golden on top and topped off with a blend of creamy butter, spices, garlic and Parmesan.
For the Dough
1 cup Warm Water
1 package or 1 Tbsp. Active Dry Yeast
2 tsp. Sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
2 â€“ 2 1/2 cups Flour
For the Garlic topping
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. parsley
Sprinkle of Parmesan cheese
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and let rest/proof for about 10 min.Â Add the sugar.Â Combine the flour, garlic powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Add the olive oil and yeast mixture to the flour mixture.Â Beat well until a soft dough ball has formed. Knead for a few minutes until smooth and elastic.Â Place dough in a large greased bowl. Cover with a cloth and place in a warm place to rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
Take a small pinch of the dough and roll into a rope about 5 inches long and Â˝ inch thick. Tie the rope into a knot and place on greased baking sheet. Repeat until you have used up all the dough, and your baking sheet is full of dough knots.Â Let the dough rest in a warm place until nearly doubled in volume (about 30 minutes)
Preheat oven to 400Â° F.Â Bake for approx. 12-15 min. or until golden.Â While knots are baking, make garlic topping.
After removing knots from oven, while still warm, either brush with garlic coating, or place knots in a large bowl and toss with garlic coating.
