How do I make these Two Point Garlic Knots?

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water. Let stand until frothy, about 5-10 minutes. 

To the same bowl with the yeast, stir in the flour, and salt. Stir dough with a mixing spoon until dough forms into a ball.

Let the dough ball rest for in the bowl for at least 5 minutes. 

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough for a few minutes with floured hands until a nice smooth ball is formed. 

Roll the dough ball out into a large rectangle.

Using a pizza cutter, cut 12 wide strips (about 3/4 inch) and form each strip into a rope.

Roll each strip into a dough rope.

Tie each rope into a loose knot.

Continue until 12 knots are made.

Place knots on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

In a small bowl combine, large beaten egg, melted butter, minced garlic, Parmesan cheese, 1 tsp dried oregano, 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

1/4 tsp kosher salt. Whisk until well combined.

Using a basting brush, brush each knot with melted butter mixture or lightly spoon on top. 

Bake for 14-16 minutes or until lightly brown. 

Remove from oven.

Using a basting brush, brush tops of the cooled knots with melted butter.

I was not sure what to expect with these, but I am so glad I made them. They were awesome! I am not a bread maker and I was in a hurry to make dinner, but I decided to go for it. They came together really easy and quickly and even my picky eater ate them. (He ate 5 of them!). If you are on the fence about making them, do it. You will thank yourself!

I used biscuits because I’m lazy. I just cut them in half and rolled them. Then blasted them with your mix. It worked perfectly!!!

I added 1/2 cup of flour because it was so sticky and I still couldn't roll it. It was way too sticky. I tried adding not fat shredded cheese to dry it out. That didn't work so I chucked the whole batch. I used Fage 0%. I'm not sure what I did wrong. It looked nothing like your dough. Can you tell me what yogurt you use?

Hi Cath,

The dough texture can differ depending on the Greek yogurt that is used. If the yogurt is thinner it will be runny and will cause the dough to be sticky or wet.

I recommend starting with 1/4 cup water and if needed add more up to 1/2 cup water. (I have edited that as tip for this recipe.) Also, did you only used 1 cup non fat greek yogurt?

*You can add also an additional 1/4 cup self rising flour-and make 13 rolls and they will still be 2 point each-if the dough is too sticky.

Thanks so much!
