Simple and Easy One Hour Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls are infused with the flavors of garlic and herbs. Perfect as an appetizer or can to top the rolls with cheese and bake as directed generously with pasta or hot soup for a complete meal. Vegan and made from scratch!!
Cold weather is continuously blasting our area and to keep warm, all I can think off is a bowl of hot soup and warm home-baked bread. Nothing beats the idea of baking fresh bread on a cold wintry day.
And today, I am excited to share these Easy One Hour Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls which comes together in just 1 hour – from start to finish!!
HOW TO MAKE A DOUGH RISE IN COLD WEATHER?
Dough in winters can be challenging for some. Homes are cold, and it could be challenging to find a warm spot to make the dough rise. What works best for me – is a warm oven.
Warm the oven @200 degree F for 10 minutes, turn it off and place the dough in the warm oven to rise. It works beautifully.
This recipe is adapted from my other bread recipes. Had made these Easy One Hour Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls over the holidays for our potluck dinner and was a HIT.
Didn’t want to make these pull-apart rolls the traditional way, so added a twist by shaping them like twisted rolls.
- Can be made ahead of time.
- They are super soft, fluffy and taste d-licious!!
- Crowd-pleasing appetizer for a for game day or potluck dinners.
- Make a big batch and see them disappear.
- Can be doubled to accommodate a big crowd. Shape and place the pan in the freezer. When ready to bake, defrost on the counter and bake as directed. So easy!
Now, onto the recipe!
Just like a regular bread recipe – activate the yeast and combine with the dough. Let the dough rise and later divide into equal dough balls. Now here is a twist – either you can make a dough ball and spread it in a greased baking pan.
Pour garlic butter on top and bake. Another way would be to flatten the dough ball, layer it with garlic butter and fold it like a twisted loop. Follow a step by step instructions below on how to make a twisted loop.
Brush the layered dough with butter and minutes later your house will smell like a bakery. Tastes best when fresh out of the oven. Hot homemade Easy One Hour Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls are ready in an hour with minimal work.
These rolls are feather light and airy and a great addition to any meal. I like to eat them by dipping into my bowl of hot soup. Super yum!!
Store bought Pillsbury biscuit rolls can be used for the dough to speed up the process. Remove the dough from the pack, shape like round balls and use as directed. Bake as per package instructions. Instead of dried herbs, fresh chopped can be used.
Since these are vegan rolls, I have not used the cheese. But the non-vegan option would be to generously top the rolls with cheese and bake as directed. These rolls can be enjoyed plain as is or serve with a dip or along with a bowl of hot soup – just like me. 🙂

Easy Pull-Apart Garlic Rolls
FOR THE DOUGH
- 4 cups All purpose flour
- 1.5 teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon Baking powder
- 3 tablespoon Vegan Butter
- 2 tablespoon Sugar
- 1 tablespoon Active dry yeast
- 1.5 cups Warm Water
FOR GARLIC HERB BUTTER
- 1 stick Vegan Butter (1/2 cup)
- 1.5 teaspoon Garlic Salt
- 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley
- 1 teaspoon Dried Basil leaves
- 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
KNEADING THE DOUGH
- Measure all the ingredients.
- Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water and let stand for five minutes, or until foamy.
- Once the yeast activates (foamy and bubbly), go ahead with the recipe. If the yeast fails to do so, please discard and start over.
- In a bowl or a bowl of stand mixer, combine flour, butter, salt and baking powder.
- Pour in the activated yeast.
- Mix and form a soft dough.
- Cover and let the dough rest in a warm place/oven for 20 minutes. Dough will double in size. If it doesn't, allow it to sit for another 20 minutes.
- While the dough is resting, let's prepare garlic butter. Assemble ingredients listed under garlic butter. Garlic salt can be substituted with fresh chopped garlic and salt.
- With a fork, press down on the soften butter until its smooth. Add garlic salt and herbs. Mix until well blended. Set it aside.
- Remove the dough from oven and gently punch the dough down.
SHAPING THE DOUGH
- Divide the dough into several equal sized balls and shape them. The above measurements make 18 balls. I have not measured on a scale just eyeballed it.
- Preheat the oven @350 degree F. Meanwhile, flatten the dough.
- Apply a single layer of garlic spread to the flatten dough.
- Start rolling the dough....
- Until it looks like a log.
- Fold the dough in such a way that the two ends meet each other.
- It will form a big 'O'. Pinch the ends together.
- Flip the folded roll over and it will look exactly like the one as shown in the pic below.
- Grease a baking pan and arrange the dough on top of each other. Make sure to butter the bottom layer before placing the other layer on top.
- Butter the top layer as well and generously top with some dried parsley or cilantro.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Brush the hot rolls with melted butter and serve.
- Served with a dip or with a hot bowl of soup and see these rolls disappear!
