sour cream everything seed knots

As soon as I heard the news that today would be 93° with a heat index of 100, I decided it would be perfect weather to make a rough puff-style dough to bake off these Sour Cream Everything Seed Knots. I plan so well. As it turns out, even without A/C, I didn’t have any issues making the yeasted sour cream dough in the food processor, or completing the set of folds and turns that created the flaky layers and worked in the everything seed blend I stirred together. I think it helped that I made a super small batch, and each step took me only about twenty seconds, so my dough didn’t have the chance to warm up too much. The trickiest part came with forming these knots. I think I did ok, but I don’t have much decorative bread or dough forming experience, so I had to read the instructions like fifty times. Anyway, I had one of these knots along with my lunch salad, and it was a delicious, salty, seedy, garlicky treat. Kind of like a flaky breadstick, I also think they’ll go well with a glass of wine and a piece of cheese for sundown snacks.

  1. These look great. I was not able to make a knot so I just twisted them. Think I’d make them again with store-bought puff pastry and a big of egg wash (mine didn’t get too much colour).

    • i agree about the egg wash— i actually went over to open the book and make sure she didn’t say to do it before i stuck them in the oven. thought they could have used a little more color and some shine.

  2. I liked these savoury knots – they surprised me. I agree, the shaping part was confusing.

  3. I’m sure these are tasty!

  4. My husband said the same thing, needs wine and cheese. Kuddos to you for baking in 93 degree heat and no AC. I hope it cools down for you.
