  1. 1 cup warm milk (105º to 110º)
  2. 5 tablespoons sugar
  3. 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  4. 1/2 cup softened butter
  5. 1 large egg
  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  7. 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  8. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  9. 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  10. 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  11. 1/4 cup melted butter
  1. In a medium bowl or glass measuring cup, combine milk, sugar, and yeast. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes or until mixture is foamy.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, combine softened butter, egg, and salt. Add yeast mixture, beating at low speed until smooth. Gradually add flour, dill, and 1/2 cup cheese, beating at medium speed until a smooth and elastic dough forms (dough will be slightly sticky).
  3. Spray a large bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Form dough into a ball, and place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let stand in a warm draft-free place (85º) for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  4. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide dough into 24 equal portions. Form each portion into a 9-inch-long rope. Form each rope into a spiral shape, pinching end to seal. Place on prepared baking sheet. Brush evenly with cream and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Cover and let stand in a warm draft-free place (85°) for 35 to 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
  5. Preheat oven to 350º.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Brush evenly with melted butter. Remove from pans and serve warm, or let cool completely on wire racks.
