Prep Time1 hr 30 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time1 hr 45 mins
Servings: 12 rolls
For the rolls
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 package active dry yeast
- 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 2- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
For the Garlic Parmesan spread
- 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter , melted
- 2-3 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive oil
- 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese , seperated
In a bowl of your stand mixer stir together the warm water, sugar and yeast. Let sit for 10 minutes.
Add the flour, salt, and olive oil and knead (or mix with your mixer and dough hook attachment) for about 5-7 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume--about 1 hour.
Pour dough out onto floured counter top. Roll it into a large rectangle, no more than 1/2'' thick.
In a small bowl mix together the melted butter, garlic powder, parsley, and olive oil.
Use a pastry brush to spread about 1/2 of this butter mixture on the dough.
Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the grated parmesan cheese.
Roll the dough tightly long-ways, like a log (like you would with cinnamon rolls).
Use a sharp serrated knife to cut the log into pieces about 1 1/2 inches thick.
Place the rolls on a greased baking sheet.
Cover rolls with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray so it wont stick. Allow to rest for about 30 more minutes.
Bake rolls at 400 degrees F for about 12-14 minutes.
*At about the 9 minute mark, remove the rolls from the oven and spread the remaining butter/garlic mixture on top of them.
Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup of fresh parmesan cheese, and return to the oven for the last few minutes of baking. Enjoy!
