  • 1 cup water at room temperature
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 cups bread flour plus more as needed
  • 1 tablespoon Wildtree Hearty Spaghetti Sauce Blend or Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon Wildtree Garlic Galore Seasoning Blend or garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Basil Salt or kosher salt


On Prep Day:

  • Combine all ingredients and knead by hand (mix first in large bowl, then turn out and knead) or in a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook until the dough is elastic.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap or a lint-free towel and let the dough rise until it has doubled in size, about 1 hour in a warm room.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Divide dough into 12 equal portions, then roll each piece into a rope about 10 inches long. Tie each rope into a single loose knot. Place knots on the baking sheet, leaving room between them to rise.
  • Spray plastic wrap with cooking spray and cover the baking sheet (sprayed side down). Place in refrigerator.

On Baking Day:

  • Remove pan from refrigerator and preheat oven to 350℉.
  • Remove the plastic and bake the rolls until they are nicely browned and the internal temperature is 195℉, about 35 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.


Donna's original recipe called for chives and a garlic-infused olive oil. I decided to go with Italian flavors, garlic seasoning, and unflavored olive oil. Be creative and use whatever you like (or have on hand).
