Making Soft Garlic Knots

The worst Garlic Knots are the dry and flavorless ones, those you often find in fast food restaurants.

Nothing beats homemade.

These Soft Garlic Knots are fluffy, the butter and parsley flavor exist in every bite, and the golden color makes the soft garlic knots the star in parties and a reason to show off.

I like my garlic knots plain when just out of the oven, but I promise that it’s an excellent companion to your favorite dip or sauce based recipe.
