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
4 teaspoons sesame seeds
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.
Beat egg and water; brush over dough. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 375° until light golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks.
