Ingredients:

For the dough:

3 and 3/4 c bread flour

1 and 1/2 tsp granulated sugar

1 envelope active dry yeast

2 tsp salt

1 1/2 c warm water, 110 – 115 degrees (F)

2 tbsp plus 2 tsp olive oil, divided

For the garlic coating:

1 stick unsalted butter

6 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 c fresh parsley, minced

1 and 1/2 tsp garlic salt

1/4 c Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions:

Step 1: Add the sugar, yeast, flour, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Whisk until well mixed.

Step 2: Add in 2 tablespoons of olive oil and warm water. Whisk on low speed until the dough turns into a ball all over the hook. Make sure to add more flour and water if the texture of the dough is too sticky.

Step 3: Place the dough on a floured flat surface, then knead until it forms into a firm ball shape.

Step 4: Brush a large bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, then add in the dough. Cover it with plastic wrap and allow it to double its size for about 90 minutes in a warm place.

Step 5: Place the dough back to the floured flat surface and split it into two even pieces.

Step 6: Put each dough on individual plastic wrap and allow them to sit for about 10 minutes.

Step 7: Sprinkle flour on top of each dough and cut each into four equal pieces.

Step 8: Arrange the pieces by pressing them together, then cut them into two. You will make 16 even pieces of dough.

Step 9: Sprinkle flour on each slice and shape each into a ball.

Step 10: Stretch each ball and tie each into a knot.

Step 11: Arrange the knots onto the prepared baking sheet and cover it with plastic wrap. Allow the knots to rest for 30 minutes more.

Step 12: Prepare the oven and preheat to 230 degrees C or 450 degrees F.

Step 13: Remove the cover of the baking sheet and place the garlic knots inside the preheated oven. Bake for about 20 minutes or until they turn golden brown.

Step 14: Remove from the oven and allow the garlic knots to cool for about 5 minutes.

Step 15: Brush each knot with the garlic coating and sprinkle a generous amount of cheese on top.

Step 16: Serve and enjoy!
