Pillow like Soft Garlic Knots, I see them as a gift sent from above. I get excited when baking garlic knots and can’t wait for these beauties to be on the table for me to devour.
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.
If you like to dip garlic knots then I have a great recipe for you, it is from my friend Shadi who is the author of an amazing food blog Unicorns in the Kitchen, and her recipe for Juicy One Pan Meatballs is a great match for these soft garlic knots.
