Making garlic knots really shouldn’t be anything that intimidates you. Semi-homemade is anything but.
All you need for these doughy, delicious garlic knots is THREE ingredients, plus some spices. That’s it! Grab a can of buttermilk biscuit dough and stretch each biscuit into ropes (fun for kids). Tie each rope into a little knot. It is easy, first create a ‘U’ shape and then cross the top. The piece of dough that is on top will then fold back and under, coming through the center hole, tying a knot. Then take the ends and tuck them into the center.
If your kids are helping you, any shape will do as long as they form the dough into a twist of some sort. It is important to allow your mixture to stick into the folds.
Then you are ready to mix up your basting sauce. Mix butter, Parmesan, minced garlic, fresh basil, or substitute with dried Italian seasoning in a bowl, and slather that buttery goodness over top. Bake ‘til golden.
I like to save some of the melted butter (without anything else to baste on the knots after they were done cooking, as well as sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on top. Bake them for about 10-15 minutes at 375 degrees.
