Garlic Knots Recipe

Garlic Knots are a specialty of USA cooking. They are made from dough that is rolled out and then spread with finely minced garlic. Dough pieces can be shaped into knots, which can then be cooked or baked in an oven.

Garlic Knots have even been used on pizzas to create different flavors for customers to enjoy. The dough is made from flour, yeast, and water. Once the dough is shaped in knots or other types of shapes, they are typically sprinkled with garlic powder. Sprinkling the Garlic Knots allows some of the individual items you are cooking to taste differently than others.
