Looking For a Great Garlic Roll Recipe Like Cinnamon Rolls
i would like to try making garlic rolls (like cinnamon rolls but not sweet). does anyone have a great recipe?
here's what i was thinking of doing - adapting a recipe...
i thought i would make a sweet roll dough minus the sugar (well maybe keep in 1 or 2 tablespoons...i do want that tender, yeast roll texture that great cinnamon roll dough has along with a hint of sweetness).
for the filling i thought i would make a very dense pesto with fresh basil, parsley, fresh ground parmesan, tons o fresh garlic and maybe a little scallion or shallot and pinenuts. maybe instead of using the olive oil, i will use unsalted room temperature butter so it's kinda more like making a compound butter with a greater herb to butter ratio than butter to herb ratio.
then roll it up jelly roll style. freeze for 45 minutes. cut into rolls and do a slow, refrigerator proof.
after they come out of the oven i would brush them with butter that i've sauteed chopped garlic in until the garlic is slightly gold and crunchy. so it would add texture to the top. i want these to be a butter and garlic delivery system on a great yeast roll.
do yall think this would work? or would the butter burn before the rolls are cooked? i know with cinnamon rolls, the cinnamon sugar mixture helps to bind the butter. the parmesan may work the same magic with it but i know the herbs will only add liquid and volume to the filling.
