Buttery Garlic Rolls

Yum
Buttery Garlic Rolls

Easy Garlic Rolls

Today in Western New York the temperature was 85 degrees with high humidity, but that didn't stop me from turning on the oven to make these easy garlic rolls.

My grandmother made something similar to this every time she made pizza she would make these wonderful garlic knots. I decided to change it up a bit and make it simple, just butter, garlic, and some parmesan cheese.

Here is what I used for the dough:

1 cup lukewarm water plus 2 tablespoons
1 package dry yeast
1-1/2 tablespoon butter (softened)
1 teaspoon sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour

I decided to use butter for this dough instead of oil or shortening, so I didn't add any salt. I added the water, yeast, butter, and sugar in my KitchenAid mixing bowl and let it sit for about 5 minutes to let the yeast begin to bubble.

Then added the flour and turned the mixer on low speed. I started out with just one cup of water but the dough wasn't coming together so I added two more tablespoons of water. Then finished mixing the dough by hand on a floured surface,

I covered the dough and let it rise for a little over an hour
 Now I have to tell you this funny story that my cousin told me a couple of weeks ago.

 My mother was baking a cake and she called my aunt and said: "Christy do you have any minus" my aunt replied: "Helen what are you talking about" my mother said: "this recipe calls for 2 cups of water minus 2 tablespoons, and I don't have any minus" Oh! you had to know my mother and aunt, I just couldn't stop laughing.

Okay back to the garlic rolls, Here is what I used for the rolls:

4 cloves fresh garlic chopped fine
3 tablespoons butter melted
Garlic Powder
Parmesan Cheese

I spread the dough on 11x17 greased cookie sheet, brushed the butter on top, spread the garlic, and then sprinkled some garlic powder and Parmesan cheese.

I rolled this into a log and cut 1/2 inch pieces
I preheated the oven to 425 degrees, brushed some more butter on top and sprinkled some more Parmesan cheese. Bake these for 15 minutes until golden brown.

They came out nice and crispy with a buttery flavor and garlic in every bite. These make a great addition to your favorite pasta or just as a snack dipped in marinara sauce.

These are a perfect fit for garlic bread dinner rolls

As always thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy!!
