Ingredients

Warm water 1 Cup (16 tbs) (115 degrees F)
Quick rise yeast 2 1/4 Teaspoon (1 packet)
Sugar 1 Teaspoon
Bread flour 12 1/2 Ounce (2.5 cups)
Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
Salt 3/4 Teaspoon
For garlic butter
Butter 4 Tablespoon
Garlic powder 2 Teaspoon

Directions

MAKING

1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine water, yeast, and sugar. Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes or until foamy.

2. Add bread flour, olive oil, and salt. Mix with the dough hook to roughly combine, then fit the stand mixer with the dough hook and knead the dough for 10 minutes on medium low speed, until the dough is smooth and elastic.

3. Shape the dough into a ball, cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap. Let the dough rise until it has doubled in size, which should take about 60 minutes in a warm kitchen.

4. Line a baking sheet with silicon mat and set aside.

 

MAKING

5. On floured surface, place the dough and shape into a ball or rectangle. Divide it into 16 pieces and roll each into a long rope about 5-6 inches long.

6. Tie the ropes into knot as shown in the video and place on baking sheet. Cover well with plastic wrap, a towel, or lid and let the dough rise for about an hour or until doubled in size and puffy.

7. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

 

FINALIZING

For Garlic Butter:

8. In a bowl, combine butter and garlic powder. Microwave until butter melts.

9. Brush the knots with the garlic butter and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden on top, in the lower third of the oven. To check that they are done, they should read 195 on an instant read thermometer, or you can just tear one open.

 

SERVING

10. Serve and enjoy!
