Full recipe and more photos after the jump!

Garlic Knots
Adapted from Bite My Cake

Knot Ingredients
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
7 grams instant/dry yeast (1 packet)
1 tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup warm milk
250 ml (*just* over one cup) warm water

Garlic Garlic Ingredients
1-2 ounces butter
1/2 tsp parsley, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped or sent through a garlic press

Combine the dry ingredients (flour through salt), add the wet ingredients (olive oil to water) and knead until it forms a soft, elastic dough. Dough should be soft, but not too sticky (if it sticks all over your fingers, add some more flour to the mix).

Transfer dough to a lightly oiled bowl and turn once to coat and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise for 1 hour. Divide dough into 16 pieces. Shape each piece into a long rope and tie into a knot. Take the ends and tuck it into the center knot.

Transfer knots to a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise for 45 minutes. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake knots for 35 to 45 minutes (ours took closer to 45 minutes). When the knots come out of the oven, melt the butter and add the parsley and garlic. Brush the glaze onto the knots and enjoy!

Yours in garlic knot heaven,
