Ingredients:  
3/4 cup warm water (105F-115F)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 package (2-1/4 teaspoons) of active dry yeast
2-1/4 cups (300 g) bread flour
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

Garlic-Butter Coating:

5 Tbsp unsalted butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup parsley, minced
1 teaspoon salt

Directions:
Directions:
Stir the yeast and sugar into a small bowl with the water and let it sit for 5 minutes until it starts to foam. In a bowl, whisk the flour and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in the olive oil, then the yeast-sugar-water mixture. Mix this together to form a dough and knead for 10 minutes. Shape the dough into a ball and lightly coat with olive oil. Put it in a large bowl and top with plastic wrap. Set it in a warm spot to rise about 90 minutes. When the dough has risen, cut it into fourths. Set out 2 large baking sheet and line them with parchment paper, spray with baking spray. Working with one piece at a time, flatten into rough 4x5-inch rectangles. Using a sharp knife slice each dough rectangle into 4 long strips (1 x 5-inches). Cut these strips in half in the middle. You should now have 8 (1 x 2.5-inch) strips. Take one piece at a time and work it into the shape of a snake. Then tie it in a knot and repeat with the remaining dough. Leave some space between each knot. Paint all the knots with a little olive oil. Loosely cover them with plastic wrap and let them rise again until doubled in size. Preheat the oven to 400. Uncover the knots and bake in the oven 12-15 minutes. While the garlic knots are baking, melt the butter in a small pot and cook the garlic about 2 minutes over medium-low heat. Add the salt and parsley and stir to combine. Turn off the heat. When the knots are done, take out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Paint with the garlic-butter-parsley mixture and serve.

Personal Notes:
Pungo is a little village within the City of Virginia Beach It is famous for its Strawberry Festival held every Memorial Day weekend. Carnival rides, ice cream, pig races and strawberry slushies makes this a circled event on the calendar for the grandkids. Pungo Pizza is another favorite because it has an Arcade and they serve these garlicky, pillowy, globules of buttery goodness. $20.00 of quarters, a couple of pizzas and a dozen of these knots and the kids are happy and occupied....for about and hour.
