1 T. honey

2 1/4 t. yeast

2 T. olive oil

3 1/2 - 4 1/2 c. bread flour

2 cloves garlic, minced

2-3 T. parmesan cheese {the kind from a jar}

Mix together warm water, honey and yeast. Let stand 5 minutes. Combine oil, flour and salt with the yeast mixture. Knead 5 minutes. {I use my kitchenaid} Cover and let rise until double - about an hour. 

Divide dough into 16 pieces. Roll each piece into a bread stick, then form it into a knot. Place on greased baking sheet and bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes. 


While rolls are baking, combine garlic butter topping ingredients into a saucepan. Melt butter over medium heat. Brush topping onto rolls with a pastry brush. Bake a 2-3 more minutes until golden brown.
