Garlic Knots


So I had a work party that was a potluck and I had to bring a dish. Well I work with a very diverse group from all different countries... and who would want something I would make when you can have Sushi! Sweet! So I figured that everyone would bring great sides, etc so I would bring the bread. I've been dying to start trying to make my own bread, rolls, etc rather then always buying it frozen so here was my shot! And thanks to my trusty Katie, they were a hit! Honestly, I'm not sure why I have a blog since I'm always sending ya'll back to hers! But hey, I'm just so proud that I can copy with some similarity!
Ingredients:
1 recipe basic pizza dough (previous post)
1/2 c. butter
5 garlic cloves, minced
salt

Directions:

-After you let pizza dough recipe complete it's rise, roll out into large rectangle, 1/2 inch thick.
-Using pizza cutter, cut into measured out 1-inch wide strips.
-Take each strip and tie into a basic knot.
-Take end that is underneath and fold it over and into the middle.
-Take end that is over top and fold it under.
-Place knot onto parchment lined baking sheet.
-Repeat with all knots.
-Sprinkle generously with salt, cover with wax paper and kitchen towel and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
-Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
-In small saucepan over medium low heat, combine butter and garlic.
-Stir until butter mixture is completely melted.
-Using pastry brush, generously brush the tops of the dough with the butter mixture.
-Place in oven to bake until turning golden brown, about 12-15 minutes.
-Remove from oven, brush with remaining butter mixture and serve.

These were a hit and I should have made more, Chris was upset he only got one!
