Garlic Knots

These garlicky dinner rolls are a cinch to make because you start with frozen bread dough. They're brushed with garlic butter before and after baking.

Garlic Knots
Servings: 24 Yield: 24 knots Prep 10 mins Cook 8 mins Rise 30 mins Bake 375°F 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon plus 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound frozen bread dough, thawed

Make It

1. Heat olive oil and butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-low heat until butter is melted, 4 minutes. Add garlic and 1/8 teaspoon of the salt. Cook 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside.

2. Roll out thawed dough to a 12 x 10-inch rectangle. Cut crossways into 12 strips, then in half lengthwise, for a total of 24, 5 x 1-inch strips.

3. Tie each strip into a knot, stretching dough slightly. Transfer dough knots to two large baking sheets (12 per sheet). Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cover with a clean towel, and leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes.

4. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Uncover knots, and brush each with a little garlic butter. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes, rotating pans halfway. Once baked, immediately transfer to a large bowl and toss with remaining garlic butter.
