Garlic Knots


Makes 16

My kids love these at the pizza store and learned how easy they are to make at camp.  Although I didn’t see that exact recipe, I tried a few at home with the kids to see what was easy and delicious.  Here’s a great recipe to try. They are super delicious hot out of the oven.  They won’t stay last until dinner.

3 to 4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil leaves
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
1 package store bought pizza dough (about 1 pound) or homemade pizza or challah
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat oven to 375°F. In small microwavable bowl, microwave garlic, margarine and oil on High 30 seconds or until butter is melted. Stir in basil and parsley; set aside.

Separate dough into 16 pieces.  Roll each piece into a log about 4 inch longs and 1 inch wide.  Tie into a “knot-like” ball. Place in ungreased 9-inch round cake pan.

Let stand to rise for 35 minutes.

Spoon margarine-herb mixture evenly over top of each knot. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
