Oh my stars these were fantastic! I couldn't stop eating them right from the oven, and I made them to sell at farmer's market! I had no problem selling them, they are so soft and pretty! I followed the directions except I didn't use a bread machine, I used the old fashioned double rise method, and I added in some fresh garlic with the garlic powder. Just combine the water (but make sure it is 110 degrees not 70 to 80, this is proper temperature for yeast to rise) with the yeast and sugar, and let soften for a few minutes. Then, add olive oil, butter, salt, garlic powder (I also grated in a few cloves of fresh garlic to really make it stand out, use a fine grater to make paste) and parmesan. I then added the fresh basil (I had lemon basil on hand-yum!) and the flour. Work in really well with your hands until the dough is smooth, then put in greased bowl, turning once to grease top, cover with towel and let rise to double. Then, turn out and divide into as many pieces as you like (I doubled the recipe and ended up with almost five dozen) to make them as small or big as you want. Roll them into the balls and then roll into ropes, and place on greased cookie sheets, cover again and let rise. Brush tops with butter & garlic salt,sprinkle with parmesan and parsley. Bake for only twelve minutes or so. Then, you can freeze them to store, or reheat room temp sticks in a 300 degree oven just until warm again before you serve. These are so delicious!
