ingredients

  • 3 to 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 packet Fleischmann's® RapidRise® Yeast (2-¼ teaspoons)
  • 1-½ teaspoons salt
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¼ cup salted butter (plus additional ¼ cup butter for brushing rolls)
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Instant Yeast and salt. Stir to combine.
  2. In a separate microwave-safe medium bowl, microwave the milk, water, and ¼ cup butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Stir into flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed with a wooden spoon or electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.
  3. Add the egg and an additional ½ cup of the flour. Beat for 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in the garlic, garlic powder, parsley and enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on a lightly-floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover. Set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  5. After an hour, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently pat into a 16" x 6" rectangle.
  6. Use a sharp knife to cut dough into (16) 1-inch wide strips. Knot each strip and tuck the ends in to make a round knotted roll.
  7. Place the knots on two cookie sheets lined with parchment paper about 2 inches apart. Cover and place back in a warm place to proof for 1 hour.
  8. Once risen, brush with the remaining ¼ cup melted butter and bake in a 375°F oven for 18 minutes or until golden brown and hollow-sounding when roll is tapped on underside.
