First use!

The mixer has been christened!

After looking for a recipe for garlic knots and not having all the ingredients for any of them, I decided to just improvise and change a recipe I did have all the stuff for.

I took the cinnamon roll recipe from Side of Sneakers I used to make the Non-Cinnamon rolls and made it garlicky!  

I swapped the teaspoon of cinnamon for a teaspoon of garlic powder.  For the "filling", I mixed olive oil, roasted garlic, and Italian seasonings.  I let it rise for half an hour on the stove, then baked for 20 minutes at 350. 

I need to use more roasted garlic next time.  I had half a head in the fridge, but a whole head would have worked much better.  So, I made a little garlic butter and dipped these.  The texture was excellent, though.  I wouldn't change anything about the dough.

And I love my new mixer!!!!  :)
