Garlic Knots

  • 1/4 c . butter
  • 1 c . milk
  • 2 T. instant yeast
  • 1 T. honey
  • 1/2 tsp . salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 3-3 ½ c . all-purpose flour

Garlic Butter

  • 2 T. butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp . Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp . garlic powder
  • 3-4 T. grated Parmesan or Romano cheese optional


  • Preheat oven to 400 Line a 9x13-inch rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking liner. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter.
  • When butter is mostly melted, stir in milk, and heat mixture to 100-110 F.
  • Meanwhile, add yeast and honey to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (or a large mixing bowl if mixing by hand).
  • When milk mixture is at temperature, add to yeast and honey; stir to combine.
  • Add salt and egg, and stir until combined.
  • Stir in 2 ½ cups of flour.
  • Add remaining flour until dough clings to paddle and cleans the sides of the bowl.
  • Switch to the dough hook, and knead for 2 minutes (or by hand for about 5 minutes).
  • With lightly floured hands, shape dough into 12 knots, and place dough on prepared baking sheet.
  • Cover, and let dough rest for 10 minutes.
  • Bake for about 9-12 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
  • While the knots are baking, prepare the garlic butter.
  • In a small bowl, stir together ingredients for garlic butter.
  • After removing the rolls from the oven, brush with garlic butter, sprinkle with cheese if using, and enjoy!
  • If you would prefer to use active dry yeast, substitute an equal amount for the instant yeast. Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes, or until foamy. Then, continue with the recipe as written.
