Cook: 20 mins

Yields: 12 Garlic Knots

    dough ingredients

  • 2 Cself-rising flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 C Stonyfield Greek Plain Whole Milk yogurt

  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 t pepper

directions

Knots:

Step 1

Combine flour and yogurt on a cutting board or in a bowl. Mix with hands until a shaggy dough forms. (The dough may appear dry and crumbly at first, but it will come together as it’s mixed.)

Step 2

Turn the mixture out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until the dough is smooth and slightly elastic, about 8 minutes, dusting with more flour if necessary.

Step 3

Slice the dough into 4 equal pieces and flatten them into rectangles

Step 4

Line two large baking sheets with either parchment paper or silicone liner

Step 5

Slice the rectangle-shaped dough into strips (1 x 5 inches)

Step 6

Cut these strips in half in the middle. You should now have (1 x 2.5-inch) strips.

Step 7

Form knots: Take one piece at a time, by the ends of the dough, and tie it into a knot. Go over, under, and pull it through.

Step 8

Brush with olive oil and let sit to rise: Once all the knots are tied, brush with a little olive oil.

Step 9

Preheat the oven to 400°.

Step 10

Bake the knots: Uncover the knots and bake in the oven 12-15 minutes, or until nicely browned on top.



Garlic Glaze:

Step 1

Melt butter in a small pot and cook the garlic gently in it just long enough to take off that raw garlic edge, about 1-2 minutes over medium-low heat. Add the salt and parsley and stir to combine. Turn off the heat.

Step 2

Brush cooked knots with garlic parsley butter mixture: When the knots are done, take out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Paint with the garlic-butter-parsley mixture and serve. These are best warm, but are good at room temperature, too.
