Garlic Knots

Since I’ve got my professional KitchenAid mixer for Christmas, I just can’t stop making doughs after doughs after doughs in it. Can’t believe how I lived without it. In the short time I’ve had this powerful machine to my disposal, I’ve found that really bad things have been happening to my cravings. Bad things like these fluffy, pillowy white, garlicky bread rolls. Crushed garlic flavored the inside of the rolls and hot oil brushed on top, with lots of garlic and parsley…yummy.

The dough again is simple, basic pizza dough. Just like this:

Basic Pizza Dough

1 pkg. dry yeast
3/4 c. warm water
1/4 tsp. salt
1 T. oil
1 tsp. sugar
3 c. flour

How to:
Mix ingredients together, adding flour last. Cover and let rise 1 hr.

Then, add some crushed garlic, I added so much of crushed garlic, the whole nation of vampires would run away from us. But that didn’t bother any of us. We are garlic lovers. Divide the dough into pieces and roll out into long ropes. Make knots out of ropes and arrange on a cookie sheet. Cover with a damp cloth and let the knots rise again to double the size.

In the mean time, heat up the oven to 400° F. heat up the oil, as much as you want, add more crushed garlic and chopped parsley in hot oil and remove from heat. Liberally spread rolls with it, bake till top is nice and golden, about 20 minutes.
