Made from scratch Perfect 1-Hour Garlic Knots that taste and smell like you worked on them all day.
It might be hard to believe, but I speak the truth!
By just fudging a little on the knead time and rise time, you can make these fluffy tender yeasty knots, dripping with garlic herb butter, in about an hour. A few minutes less, if you happen to have double ovens.
The trick is to speed up every step a bit.
To make these ridiculously addictive Perfect 1-hour Garlic Knots…
Reduce the yeast foaming time from 10 minutes, to just 5, by adding flour to the mixture early on. The flour gives the yeast something to hold onto and helps it activate quickly.
Then hurry the kneading time by making your electric mixer work overtime on medium-high, instead of kneading on low.
Skip the traditional process of letting the dough rise twice. Instead, tie the freshly kneaded dough into knots, brushed them with water so they wouldn’t dry out, and let them rise in a low temperature oven for just 20 minutes.
Notice how the knots puff up so much they almost lose their knotty-ness?
This is a good thing. It ensures every bit of interior bread is soft and pillowy.
P.S. This quick-rise method works well with other small yeasty items like rolls. Particularly if the recipe is egg-free. However, I wouldn’t risk it with large loaves of bread.
Finally, place the rolls back in a hot oven and let them bake to golden perfection.
The knotted rolls are soft and sumptuous, with a light wheaty flavor.
They are pretty delicious on their own, but even better drenched in garlic butter and sprinkled with parmesan cheese.
Perfect 1-Hour Garlic Knots are a welcomed addition to any meal.
They make great party snacks with a side of homemade marinara for dipping, and are guaranteed to be the first item on the table to disappear.
So forget the frozen pre-made bread, and try this easy Perfect 1-Hour Garlic Knots recipe instead.
You’ll be so glad you did!
