How to Make It

  1. Combine yeast and milk in a large bowl. Let stand 5 minutes.

  2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Gradually stir 1 3/4 cups flour and next 3 ingredients into yeast mixture, using a wooden spoon. Turn dough out onto work surface and knead dough 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic, adding enough of remaining flour to prevent dough from sticking to hands.

  3. Coat a medium bowl with cooking spray. Place dough in bowl, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 35 minutes or until doubled in size. (Press two fingers into dough. If indentation remains, the dough has risen enough.)

  4. Preheat oven to 400°.

  5. Punch dough down; divide into 12 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 10-inch rope about 1/2 inch in diameter. Place ropes on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Coat ropes with cooking spray; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

  6. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until golden.
