Instructions

  1. Combine 3/4 cup flour, sugar, dry yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl and stir until blended.
  2. Combine milk, water and butter in a small microwave-safe bowl.
  3. Microwave on HIGH in 15 second increments until very warm but not hot to the touch (120° to 130°F*. Butter won’t melt completely).
  4. Add to flour mixture.
  5. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.
  6. Add 1/4 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed.
  7. Stir in just enough of the remaining flour (1 to 1-1/4 cups) so that the dough will form into a ball.
  8. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic and springs back when lightly pressed with 2 fingers, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  9. Cover with a towel; let rest for 10 minutes.
  10. Cut dough into 8, 10, or 12 equal pieces; shape into balls using your hands.
  11. Place in greased  8-inch round or square pan. Cover with towel; let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  12. Bake in preheated 375ºF oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  13. While the bread is baking mix the 1 minced garlic clove, 2 tablespoons pesto, and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Set to the side.
  14. Remove from pan by running a knife around the edges and invert onto wire rack. 
  15. Drizzle the rolls with the garlic pesto and serve warm.
