Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 packet (1/4 oz.) rapid-rising yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups (110° to 115° F) warm water
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus extra for kneading
  • 3/4 cup dry NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Instant Nonfat Dry Milk
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 2 tablespoons butter, melted, divided

Instructions

GREASE 2 large baking sheets. Combine cheese, herbs and garlic powder in small bowl; set aside.

STIR yeast into warm water in small bowl. Combine flour, dry milk, sugar and salt in large bowl. Add 1/2 cup butter and yeast mixture to flour mixture. Stir until blended and sticky dough is formed.

PLACE dough on lightly floured surface; knead for 6 to 8 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic, adding additional flour as necessary. Cut into 24 pieces. While working with dough, keep covered with plastic wrap. Roll each piece into a 10-inch long rope. Flatten rope slightly; holding ends, twist and place on prepared baking sheet. Press down ends. Brush dough with remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle with cheese mixture. Allow to rise in warm place for 15 minutes or until risen slightly.

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

BAKE for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from baking sheets to wire racks. Serve warm. Store remaining tightly covered.
