3 3/4CupsUnbleached All-Purpose Flourplus more for dusting the work surface.
1/2Cup Low Fat Milkwarm to about 110 degrees
2 1/4TeaspoonsRapid Rise Yeast
2 1/2TablespoonsUnsalted ButterMelted
1 1/2Large Eggsbeaten (crack one egg into a bowl, whisk, and then use half that amount with 1 whole egg.)
1/2cupParmesan cheese(Kraft powdered kind)
Adjust oven rack to the lowest position and heat to 200 degrees.
Once the oven temp reaches 200, maintain the heat for 10 minutes and turn off the oven.
Mix 3 1/2 cups of the flour and the salt in a bowl.
Mix the milk,cream, butter, and 1/4 cup sugar in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until foam forms around the edges.
Remove from the burner and place on a hot pad in the fridge to cool only to luke warm. You do NOT want cold milk, but it cannot be hot either.
In a glass measuring cup, add the warm water and yeast with the 2 teaspoons of sugar.
Allow to foam for 5-10 minutes.
In a bowl of a standing mixer, add the milk mixture and about 1 cup of the flour.
Using the dough hook, mix for about 30 seconds.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the yeast mixture.
Beat again for 3 minutes.
Add the eggs and beat for 30 seconds.
Add the remaining flour and beat on medium then medium high for 1-2 minutes or until the dough is pulling away from the mixer but still slightly sticky to the touch.
Place in a clean, lightly oiled bowl and cover with a towel to rise for 1-2 hours, sometimes I let mine go for 3 hours.
Punch down the dough and place on a lightly floured surface.
Form into balls and then roll in butter, herb mixture and then place in greased pie dishes (about 2 dishes), covered lightly with a towel to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden on top.
See notes for further instructions on freezing etc.
Put butter and garlic in a bowl, seasoning and cheese in another.
You can make the rolls, shape them and then freeze them on a cookie sheet. Once they are frozen place into ziploc bags. When you're ready to use them pull them out and allow to rise for 4 hours, roll in seasoning, rise another hour then bake as normal.store in a plastic bag
