Buttery Garlic Knots

I am LOVING the bread maker I got for Christmas.  I am amazed at how more efficiently I can make breads and more importantly – dough!  I already made pizza, and was happy to whip up these garlic knots for a little pizza party at a friend’s home recently.  Click here to see a basic pizza dough recipe for the bread maker.  I try to use honey instead of sugar.  I also add garlic powder and basil to my dough.

After your machine is done making your dough, put the dough on a lightly floured surface.  Shape it like a large rectangle, and use a pizza wheel or dough cutter to “slice” the dough into about 20 pieces.  I did that by making a horizontal cut separating the dough into 2 and then dividing each section into 10.

Break off a piece of dough (my batch made about 20 garlic knots), and roll it into a thin log. You can then twist each piece into a knot (shape displayed in photo above) and place on a cookie sheet lined with a slipat or parchment paper.  Preheat the oven to about 400 degrees, and then let the knots rise about 20 minutes on top of the oven, covered with a clean kitchen towel.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden.  When they come out, baste them in melted butter combined with minced garlic, oregano, and basil.  They came out great!  We love them dipped in marinara!
