Garlic Knot Rolls

I wanted to try this recipe because it was something different. We loved the rolls although as a garlic lover I would've preferred mine be more garlicky.

3 Cups flour
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tsp instant yeast
1 1/4 Tsp salt
2 Tbsp Olive oil
1/4 Cup milk
1 Cup hot water

Garlic Butter Glaze:
2 cloves Garlic, minced or pressed
2 Tbsp melted butter
1/2 Tsp Italian seasoning

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add olive oil, milk and water. Mix until ingredients have formed a dough. Knead on low speed until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 5 min. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, turn once to coat and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise about 45 min to 1 hr or until double in size.
Divide the dough into 10-14 equal pieces and roll each piece into an 8" rope. Tie the rope into a knot. Place on greased cookie sheet, cover with a clean towel and let rise 30-45 min. Combine all glaze ingredients and brush over rolls. Bake at 350F until lightly browned, about 18-20 min.

Note: Next time I'm going to double the glaze recipe to drench the rolls in the garlic.
Also, professional bakeries use proofing boxes to get their dough to rise. The boxes are kept warm and moist making the process a little faster than leaving the dough on the counter to rise.
You can have your own professional proofing box by using the microwave. Boil a cup of water in the microwave, about 1 minute on full power. Do not remove the cup. Put the covered dough in and shut the door. Set the timer so you don't forget about your dough!
