 Rosemary Garlic Pull-Apart Bread

from Ellen's kitchen, with thanks to Sally's Baking Addiction

  • Dough:
    • 2 tsp yeast
    • 1 tbs granulated sugar
    • 3/4 whole milk
    • 3 tbs softened unsalted butter
    • 1 large egg
    • 2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 tbs finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • Filling:
    • 5 tbs unsalted butter
    • 1 tbs finely chopped fresh rosemary
    • 1 tbs finely chopped fresh parsley
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 3/4 cup shredded favorite cheese(s)
  • Optional Topping:
    • 1 tbs unsalted butter, melted
    • flaky/coase salt for sprinkling
Make the dough:
  • Place yeast and sugar in bowl of stand mixer fitted with dough hook.  Heat milk to 110.  Pour warm milk over top of yeast/sugar and whisk to combine.  Loosely cover with clean towel and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes.  It should become frothy.  
  • Add the butter, egg, flour, salt, garlic powder, and rosemary.  Beat on low for 3 minutes.  Dough will be soft.  Transfer to lightly floured surface.  Using lightly floured hands, knead for 1 minute.  If too sticky to handle, add a bit more flour, but dough should remain soft.  Shape into ball.  
  • Place the dough in greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place in slightly warm environment to rise until doubled in size, about 60-90 minutes.  
  • As dough rises, preparefilling in next step and grease 9 x 5" loaf pan.
Make the filling:  
  • In medium bowl, mix soft butter, rosemary, parsley, garlic, salt, and cheese together with fork.  Cover lightly and set aside (don't refrigerate).

Assemble the bread:

  • Punch down the dough.  Place on a lightly floured work surface.  Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces, about 1/4 each.  Using lightly floured hands, flatten each into a circle about 4" in diameter.  The circle doesn't have to be perfectly round.  Spread 1-2 tsp of filling onto each and fold circles in half and line in prepared baking pan, round side up (like a taco).
Cover with plastic wrap:
  • and allow to rise again in slightly warm environment until puffy, about 45 minutes.  Adjust oven rack to middle setting and preheat to 350.
  • until golden brown, about 50 minutes.  Remove from oven and place on cooling rack.  Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with salt.  Cool for 10 minutes in pan, then remove and servce warm.
  • We think that it would be delicious as sugar/cinnamon bread rather than savory, but have yet to try.
