    2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon each dried basil, marjoram and oregano
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine butter and seasonings. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12-in. square. Spread with butter mixture to within 1/2 in. of edges; sprinkle with cheese.
  • Fold dough into thirds. Cut widthwise into 24 strips. Twist each strip twice; pinch ends to seal. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 40 minutes.
