Method

No-Yeast Garlic Thyme Knots 7 Steps

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 425°F.

  • Step 2

    In a blender or hand blender, puree the milk and 1 clove of garlic until smooth. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    Mix flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cheddar in a large bowl. Add 6 tablespoons butter and use your hands or a fork to crumble the butter into the dry ingredients. Add milk and stir until it comes together, it should feel a bit dry.

  • Step 4

    Transfer dough onto a floured surface and knead for about 1 minute or until dough feels smooth and is no longer dry. Roll dough into a log and allow to rest under a kitchen towel while you prepare the garlic butter. 

  • Step 5

    In a small saucepan, add butter, smashed garlic and thyme leaves. Allow butter to melt and reduce heat to low. Simmer for about 3 minutes to allow flavours to infuse. Remove garlic and set aside with a brush. 

  • Step 6

    To form knots, cut the dough log into 10 even portions. Roll each portion into a thin long log, about 3/4 inch thick and 5-6 inches long. Hold both ends of the log and tie a knot as close to the center of the log as possible. Once there is a knot in the center, bring together the two loose ends of the log and press dough together to form a sealed circle. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and generously brush with garlic thyme butter. Repeat with the remaining dough portions.

  • Step 7

    Bake for 14 minutes or until knots are golden brown. Remove and brush with more garlic thyme butter. Optional: sprinkle with coarse salt.
