  • Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine water and yeast in large bowl of electric mixer. Let sit until frothy, about 2 minutes. Add flour and salt. Beat on low speed 1 minute, increase to medium high and beat 2 minutes. Dough will be sticky. Remove to greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and tea towel. Let rise in warm place 45-60 minutes or until doubled.
  • Punch down on lightly floured surface, cover with tea towel and let rest 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place butter, garlic, and herbs in microwave safe bowl. Heat on high until butter is melted, about 1 minute. Stir to combine, set aside.
  • Divide dough into 8 pieces and roll each into a 6-8” rope. Tie rope to form knot. Tuck ends underneath. Place on prepared pan. Cover with tea towel and let rise in warm place, 30-45 minutes or until puffy.
  • Brush knots liberally with garlic butter mixture, reserving some for later.
  • Bake in preheated oven 18-20 minutes, or until an internal temperature of 190°F (88°C).
  • Remove from oven, brush hot buns with remaining garlic butter mixture and sprinkle with parmesan cheese if desired. Return to oven 1 minute, or until cheese is melted. Serve warm.
