Easy, Buttery Garlic Knots

Super easy, fool-proof garlic knots.  Biscuit dough makes them fluffy and tender and practically melt in your mouth!  You can also use pizza dough if you have some in your freezer.  I keep two portions of pizza dough in my freezer at all times since I make homemade pizza once a week.  Try them both ways!  The garlic mixture is not overwhelming like some garlic knots can be, and I have even made the mixture to sprinkle on top of my pizza!
  • 6 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tube refrigerated buttermilk biscuits or pizza dough
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Lightly oil a baking sheet, or coat with non-stick spray.  You can also use parchment paper or foil and lightly spray.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter and add Parmesan, garlic powder, oregano, parsley and salt.  Set aside.
  • Halve each of the biscuits, making 16 pieces.  Roll each piece into a 5-inch rope and tie into a knot, tucking in the ends.  If using pizza dough, follow the same procedure.
  • Place knots onto the prepared baking sheet and brush each knot with half of the butter mixture.  Place into oven and bake until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and brush with remaining butter mixture.  Serve immediately with warm marinara sauce or as an alternative to garlic bread with any Italian meal.
