Warm delicious garlic knots could fix a broken heart, Ya! they are that good.

A quick side perfect for a weeknight meal to your next dinner party.

Can it be made with a store-bought dough?

The answer is yes, but they won’t taste the same as the store-bought. You have to make it from scratch. It is absolutely soft and fluffier. These garlic knots are heavenly I grantee it, they will be gone in one sitting, i’ll grantee that too and also you will never have left over from these knots.

How to cut the dough?

The dough needs to rolled out to where it’s 1/8-1/4 of an inch in height. cut the dough into strips with a pizza cutter. Line the baking tray with parchment paper, make the knots, and bake. As soon as they are done transfer the knots in a large bowl immediately pair with Marinara sauce.
