Garlic Knots

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees F)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup butter (unsalted)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced

Directions

Prep: 1. Combine the warm water, yeast, honey and 2 teaspoons of the olive oil. Let sit for 5 minutes. 2. Add 3/4 cup of the flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt, mix until combined. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/4 cup at a time, until a soft dough is formed (you may not use all the flour). Knead for 3 to 5 minutes. 3. Toss the dough ball with the remaining oil, cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours. Make: 1. Place the dough on a floured surface and roll into a large rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Cut the dough in half lengthwise, then cut into 1 inch strips. Tie each strip loosely into a knot and place on a baking sheet. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes more. 2. Preheat oven to 375. 3. Bake the knots for 20 minutes. 4. Meanwhile, mince garlic and then combine with the butter and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, until garlic is fragrant but not too browned. Brush each knot with the garlic butter. Serve immediately.
