Garlic Cheese Rolls

This is one of my favorite recipes of all time. It comes from a wonderful book, Bread Machine Magic by Linda Rehberg and Lois Conway. It makes two pans full, 24 rolls total. Depending on how famished you are, you may be able to spirit away one pan for the freezer to enjoy at a later date. These are so buttery already, you don't need to serve with butter. (And I wouldn't lie to you. I LOVE butter.)
1 c. plus 2 T. water
3 c. flour
1 1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 T. butter
3 T. sugar
2 T. nonfat dry milk powder
2 t. yeast
1/4 c. melted butter
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 T. grated Parmesan cheese
In pan of bread machine, place water, flour, salt, 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, sugar, dry milk powder, and yeast. Select "dough" setting and press start. When machine beeps, remove dough from pan. On floured counter top or cutting board, gently stretch dough into a 24-inch rope. Use a sharp knife to divide dough into 24 pieces.
Grease 2 (8-inch) pie pans. Shape dough into balls and place 12 rolls in each pie pan.
In small bowl, combine melted butter and garlic. Spoon over rolls. Sprinkle with cheese. Warm oven by turning on to "warm" setting for 2 minutes. Turn off oven; place covered dough in oven for 30 to 45 minutes, until doubled. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes, until golden.

I will make these tomorrow! I don't think I have any powdered milk- have you ever substituted anything? I may just have to run to the store to make sure they turn out just right!

I have always used the powdered milk, Lisa. But I'll bet you could omit it and substitute a smidgen of real milk for a smidgen of the water and it should turn out close to the same. Let me know how they turn out!

My husband would LOVE these. I think I'm going to try them.

I never use the powdered milk. When ever a recipe like this calls for powdered milk I just use half milk and half water and it seems to work out fine.

Okay, I made these tonight and they were fantastic! I formed them a little larger than the recipe- into sub type rolls and we had meatball subs on them. mmmmm....:>)

I'm so glad you liked them, Lisa. We just inhale them around here. Sometimes the four of us eat all 24!

I'm going to try this for Thanksgiving! Does unsalted butter work better than salted?

Ben and Kristen, I always use salted butter. But I'm sure the unsalted kind would be fine, too. I hope they turn out great! I'm making them for Thanksgiving dinner, too :)

You rock! I'll make these this week. If I don't want garlic, just leave it off, right?

Carpool Queen, I'm sure you could leave out the garlic and they'd still be fine. Do you have garlic haters at your house?

These look so yummy...a great companion for spaghetti. If the two of us can't eat 24, I'm wondering I can freeze half of them in a pie pan and then reheat and bake them later.

Bitterroot Mama, you can definitely freeze half and reheat/bake later. They're never quite as good as when they're fresh, but they're still plenty tasty.
