Savory Garlic and Cream Cheese Rolls (Like Cinnamon Buns but a garlic bread version!)

I'm finally getting time to sit here and type out some recipes this evening so I'm grabbing some old photos from my files that have been waiting oh-so-patiently to be added to the website!  This is one I simply made up on the spot and I don't have amounts for the filling.  It's still not difficult to make, you'll see why because the filling amounts are really whatever you want to use and don't need to be measured.

First, start with any basic bread dough you love.  I have two I love but this one is used quite often here on An American Housewife.  This time however, I added some dried chives and a bit of garlic powder into the dough.

Classic Homemade Bread or Rolls

12 oz. water, warm
1 1/2 t salt
2 T butter
4 c bread flour
2 T dry milk
2 T sugar
1 3/4 t yeast, dry
Chives, fresh garlic, butter, cream cheese and garlic salt

Place the ingredients into a deep bowl of a standing mixer or into your favorite bread machine.  If using the machine, use the dough setting.  For the mixer, knead for approximately 5-7 minutes or until smooth and soft.

Roll the dough out into a large rectangle. You are basically going to make 'cinnamon rolls' at this point; but with savory ingredients.

Spread butter, cream cheese, fresh garlic, parsley, garlic powder and a little garlic salt over the dough.

Starting on the long side, roll the dough up into the log shape cinnamon rolls take.

Using a sharp knife or dental floss to cut, slice the dough into 1 inch pieces.  Place them into a greased baking pan.  Cover with plastic wrap and let raise to double.  Place into a preheated oven at 350 and bake until golden brown and done in the center (about 25 minutes - watch and check every few minutes after this until done.)

Let cool a bit before serving.  Great with spaghetti, etc.
