Garlic Knots
 
Everyones favorite pizza shop favorite is the famous garlic knots. You can buy them 4-5 of them for about $1.00 but they are so easy to make at home. 
 
Many people believe that you make garlic knots by brushing the knots with oil and garlic before you bake them. The opposite is the truth. These are totally irresistible and taste way better tasting than the variety you’d buy. While I prefer this with pizza dough, it works well with challah dough too. Recipe originally by Leah Schapira in "Fresh & Easy Kosher Cooking."
 
1½ lb. pizza or challah dough or 1 package purchased pizza dough
¼ cup olive oil
6-8 cloves garlic, minced 
1 heaping tablespoon parsley flakes
dash of salt, optional
parmesan  cheese, optional 
 
1. Preheat oven to 475F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
 
2. Roll out the dough to the size the baking sheet. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough crosswise into thin strips. You should have about 15 strips. Then cut in half lengthwise. Tie each strip into a knot. Place on prepared baking sheet. 
 
3. Bake for 7-9 minutes. Knots should be slightly browned with the bottoms still white (otherwise they will be too hard). 
 
4. Combine olive oil, garlic, parsley and optional salt.
 
5. While warm, toss with the olive oil mixture.
 
Yield: 30 mini knots
 
The Mince Vs. The Crush
The way you chop garlic does affect the flavor. For this recipe, you need to mince. While you can easily crush garlic by using a press, minced garlic needs to be finely chopped with a knife or any one of a number of special kitchen gadgets created for the task.
