Soft Garlic Knots

I found this recipe on Kara's Kitchen Creations. My whole family loved these! I only had regular yeast so I had to let them rise two times. I am going to try them next time with instant yeast. That would make them even easier. Thanks for sharing the great recipe Kara! These will be a new regular at our house.

3 cups flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. instant yeast
1 1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup milk
1 cup hot water

Garlic butter glaze:
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
2 Tbsp. melted butter
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. (I used my kitchen aid) Add the olive oil, milk and water. Mix until ingredients have formed a dough. Knead on low speed until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, turn once to coat, and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until double in bulk.

Divide the dough into 10 equal pieces. Roll each piece into an 8" long rope and tie into a knot. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Let rise for 30-45 minutes. Combine all ingredients and brush over rolls. Bake at 350 until lightly browned, about 18-20 minutes.

These look good! I am going to have a lasagne birthday dinner on Sunday and will try these instead of the usual garlic bread.
