Twice in the last week I had to quickly whip up an appetizer or a snack to share with a group that did not require a trip to the store. With a few of my favorite kitchen staples, I put together these flavor-packed garlic knots. They were simple, inexpensive and easy, using only what I had on-hand.
Did I mention that they were mind-blowingly easy and DELICIOUS??
The tasty morsels were a hit with our small group last week, so I made them again for an Easter gathering with extended family. These are a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!
(Recipe follows, after the photos!)
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- In a small bowl, combine soft butter (I set a stick on the counter for at least one hour) with garlic, seasonings and oil. Set aside.
- Sprinkle flour over a clean surface (I used a Silpat for easy clean up) then roll out the dough in a big rectangle.
- Thoroughly spread butter mixture on one half of the dough. Go ahead, be generous ;)
- Fold the dough in half lengthwise.
- Using a pizza cutter, butter knife, or offset spatula, cut strips along the shorter width end.
- Tie each strip into a knot, pinch the two ends together to create a seam.
- Set the knot on a sheet tray, seam side down.
- Bake for 12-15 minute or until it starts to turn golden.
