  • 1 ⅓ cups very warm water
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 ½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or Herbs de Provence
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a baking sheet.
  • Add warm water, yeast, and honey to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment. Stir just until honey dissolves. Allow to rest for 5 minutes - yeast will rise and foam.
  • Add flour and salt to the bowl and mix on low until mixture comes together. Switch to medium speed for 2-3 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic.
  • With flour-dusted hands remove dough from the bowl and shape into a large ball. Cover with a towel and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Cut the dough in half, then cut in halves again so that you have four sections of dough.
  • Take one section of the dough and cut it in half, then in halves again. Roll each piece into log, about 8 inches long. Tie the dough into a knot, then place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Stir together butter, garlic powder, garlic, Italian seasoning, and parmesan. Brush onto the knots being sure all the dough surface has been brushed with a bit of butter so it doesn't dry out while baking.
  • Bake for 8-12 minutes until golden. Allow to cool slightly before serving. See notes for storing.


FREEZING: To freeze these, wrap individually in plastic wrap, then place in a gallon ziploc bag, pressing out most of the air, and put in the freezer. To reheat, unwrap and microwave individually, or wrap several loosely in foil and bake for 5-10 minutes until warmed through.
