* 2 to 2-¼ cups all-purpose flour

* 1 envelope instant yeast

* 2 tablespoons sugar

* ½ teaspoon salt

* ½ teaspoon garlic powder

* ½ cup milk

* ¼ cup water

* 2 tablespoons butter

* ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese


* 1 tablespoon butter

* ¼ teaspoon garlic powder


Combine ¾ cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, salt, and garlic powder in a large bowl. Heat milk, water and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add ¼ cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough; add cheese. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece to a 12-inch rope. Tie loose knot in center and tuck ends under. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. The rolls should sound hollow with tapped.

A couple minutes before the rolls are done, melt the 1 tablespoon butter and stir in garlic powder.

Brush rolls with this immediately after you pull them out of the oven.

Serve warm.
