Garlic Knots

It makes me sad to think that there are people in this world, who have not yet tasted the glory in these Garlic Knots. The first time I tried these, I never new something could possibly be so delicious. So I make them over and over again. It’s an automatic reflex to swipe one of these away while no one is looking. You think not? Make this recipe then I’ll get to say “I told you so.” repeatedly to you.

Garlic Knots go great with soups and with butter. They also go great with pastas such as Spaghetti and Alfredo. The garlicky flavor is so delicious and the bread is so soft and flaky. We like to serve them with Thanksgiving dinners and other holidays, or even just family dinners.
