From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser. Make the dough 4
to 8 hours in advance.
In a bowl, mix with a spoon, then by hand:
2 1/3 c bread flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1 c warm water (I microwave it for 1 min.)
1/8 tsp yeast
Dough will be sticky.
Cover bowl; leave on counter.
Every hour, wet hands with water (this helps with handling
the sticky dough), stretch and fold dough a couple times,
cover. It'll become easier to handle as time passes.
To form knots coat dough ball with oil.
Divide dough into 8 portions.
With oiled hands turn balls into ropes.
Form ropes into knots.
Place on a silicone baking mat.
Bake @ 375 until golden, 20 - 25 minutes.
Melt 2 1/2 Tbsp butter.
When knots come out of oven, brush with butter.
