- 1 1/2 cup(s) lukewarm water
- 2 tbsp(s) honey
- 1 pkg(s) active yeast (1 tbsp.)
- 1 tsp(s) kosher salt
- 3 1/2 cup(s) unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 stick(s) butter, melted
- garlic salt
- parsley flakes
In your mixer bowl, add water and honey, mix, then sprinkle yeast on top. Allow to sit about 5 minutes until yeast is activated (bubbles).
Add the salt and flour a cup at time. Add enough flour until the dough pulls away from the bowl. Once you can remove the dough, clean the bowl and wipe the inside with olive oil. Place the dough back in and allow it to rise about 50 minutes (or until doubled).
Roll out onto a floured counter about the size of a cookie sheet--12 inches long, and cut 12 strips with a pizza cutter or knife. Fold each strip in half and braid the strips over each other. Pinch the ends and cut in half.
Pour some of the melted butter in a flat, thin dish and add some garlic salt and parsley flakes. Roll each of the braided sticks into the garlic butter and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. You will end up using all of the 1/2 cup of melted butter. Sprinkle a bit more garlic salt if preferred.
Bake an inch apart in a 400 degree oven for 22-24 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy warm!
