I know, I said I’m not going to post any recipe by Thanksgiving but I have some recipes I didn’t have time to write about when I made them and if I don’t post know I have the feeling I’m not going to do it soon. Plus, I still have to give the Lovely Blog Award to 30 more bloggers.
Today I’m going to share with you a Oregano Ricotta Knots recipe. Those of you who don’t like baking will say : ahhhh, another baking recipe but this is an easy one, actually I rarely do hard ones (I’m afraid of failure).
The ricotta cheese makes the knots stay moist even after 2-3 days, but for best results serve them warm to appreciate the oregano flavor.
Let’s start baking.
Gather on your working bench
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 package dry yeast
~ 1 1/2 cup warm milk
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
2-3 tsp dry oregano
2 tbsp butter
1 egg for brushing
and leave them at room temperature for about 30 minutes to an hour.
In a small bowl cream the dry yeast with a little lukewarm milk. Leave aside 5 minutes or so.
In the mixer’s bowl mix flour, ricotta, oregano, diced butter and yeast mixture.
Slowly add enough milk to form a soft dough.
Place the dough into a greased bowl, cover with foil and leave until doubles in volume.
Divide the dough into 12 balls
Take one piece of dough and roll it on your working surface into a rope.
Lift one end of the rope over the other to make a loop. Push the end through the hole to make a knot.
Place the knots on baking sheets, cover with foil and leave to rest for about 30-40 minutes or until doubled in size. Brush them with egg wash.
Bake them in preheated oven at 425F for 16-17 minutes or until golden brown.
