See that little ball of foil?  That’s what you do when you want your rolls to RISE and not SPREAD….there wasn’t quite enough dough to fill the dish…

How would you like to find this cute guy on your doorstep sometime?  Yesterday the grandkids and Mom showed up at our White Mountain Home and totally surprised us.IMG_1316

I can never resist getting in a cooking lesson whenever I have my kids held captive in my house, so I’ve been wanting to teach Aaron these garlic knots for months!  He likes to cook, and this is something I know he will make!  Can you imagine a Teenaged girl meeting a guy like this AND finding out he can cook?  WOWSERS!!!

GARLIC KNOTS

The dough for these can be several different types.  The easiest would be the tubes of pizza dough, or biscuits, or even crescent rolls.  But I think the best is a pizza dough like those you can get at Trader Joe’s, Bashas, or many other local Grocery stores.  Roll the dough out to about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick.  Cut dough into One inch wide strips and tie each one in a knot.  Melt one stick butter in a cup or bowl and add about 1-2 Tablespoons granulated garlic or crushed garlic.  Stir well and stir again each time you use the butter, as it separates.   Put a little of the garlic butter  in the bottom of the baking dish  and dip each knot into the butter in the cup.  Place them in a pan and push them gently next to each other.  (As seen above, you want to fill the pan so the rolls will RISE and not SPREAD).  So if you have to, put something to fill the pan when you bake–like the foil ball above.  Spread more butter mix over and let knots rise about 45 minutes.  Just before you put them in the oven, brush a little more butter on top.  Save out about 3 or 4 Tbs. to pour over immediately when they come out of the oven.  BAKE AT 375 DEGREES ABOUT 20-25 MINUTES.

ONCE YOU GET THE HANG OF THESE, ADD CHOPPED MEATS, CHEESES, OR GO CRAZY AND SKIP THE GARLIC ALTOGETHER AND DO CINNAMON SUGAR!  SO VERSATILE!
