4 3/4 to 5 1/4 cups all-purpose bread flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 packages Rapid Rise yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup butter or margarine, cut into pieces
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat milk, water, and butter until very warm (120* to 130* F.); stir into dry ingredients. Stir in egg and enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.
With a sharp knife, divide dough into 24 pieces for 9x13 inch pan. Shape into balls; place in greased pan. In a small bowl, combine butter and garlic*; pour over rolls.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Cover (use saran wrap sprayed with non-stick cooking spray), and let rise in warm overn 30 to 45 minutes until doubled. (hint: to warm oven slightly, turn oven on warm setting for 2 minutes, then turn it off, and place covered dough in over to rise. Remove pan from oven to preheat.)
Preheat oven to 375*F. Bake for 15 minutes until golden. Remove for oven, cut apart, and serve warm.
*Add garlic to butter BEFORE melting; garlic flavor is enhanced when heated.
