Prep Time: 15 MINUTES
Cook Time: 20 MINUTES
- 2 cups self-rising flour, plus more for dusting
- 1 cup Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Greek Plain Yogurt or Stonyfield Organic Traditional Whole Milk Smooth & Creamy Plain Yogurt
garlic-butter coating ingredients
- 5 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup parsley, minced
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- Knots: 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.)
- 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.
- Slice the dough into 4 equal pieces and flatten them into rectangles
- Line two large baking sheets with either parchment paper or silicone liner
- Slice the rectangle-shaped dough into strips (1 x 5 inches)
- Cut these strips in half in the middle. You should now have (1 x 2.5-inch) strips.
- 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.
- Brush with olive oil and let sit to rise: Once all the knots are tied, brush with a little olive oil.
- Preheat the oven to 400°.
- Bake the knots: Uncover the knots and bake in the oven 12-15 minutes, or until nicely browned on top.
- Garlic Glaze: 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.
- 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.
