Garlic Cheese Knots: Dough Made with Greek Yogurt!
-3/4 C AP flour
-1 6 oz container Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt
-3/4 tsp baking soda
Mix all of the ingredients together, adding a little water if dry. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, dusting with extra flour as needed.
You want to get it to a consistency that you can roll out between your hands. Break off hunks about the size of a ping pong ball, roll, and twist into a knot. It should make at least 8 knots.
Brush with butter* and sprinkle with garlic cheese topper and fresh grated parmesan cheese. I would also suggest adding a hint of sea salt, as the dough is naturally a little more sweet to begin with since it uses yogurt.
I baked these at 400 for 14 minutes on convection because I was also making a pizza. I greased the cookie sheet with butter (a light cookie sheet as I am home for the summer). IF I was making these and not making a pizza, I would probably knock back the heat and let them cook lower and slower, at 350 until they get golden brown.
Now, as to my * note above. I brushed mine with a little butter, that is true. However, I really think that melting butter, dipping the tops of the knots in butter and then dipping it in a garlic topper/parmesan (heavy on the parm) topping and setting on a greased cookie sheet would work out better. I consider these to be one of my works in progress.
Another option is to leave out the salt and add a pinch of sugar, then you could roll the knots in butter and a cinnamon sugar mix and bake cinnamon knots. A quick powdered sugar and milk glaze or similar would be delicious as a dipping sauce or drizzle. That idea reminds me a lot of something I used to do in home ec classes in high school and similar, and they were always one of our favorite days to be in class!
It is a super simple dough that is a mix between a pizza dough and a cake, but is good for a quick little side. You can also use it as a pizza dough or similar, make cheesy breadsticks, and whatever else your crafty little self can come up with.
