Serves 2 Dozen
In a small bowl combine only 1 tablespoon of sugar, the yeast and the warm water. Let it ferment off to the side for 20 minutes, as you start step 2.
Sift together in a separate bowl all of the flour, the remaining 5 tablespoons of sugar, and all of the salt.
Add the liquid ingredients to the flour, sugar and salt. Mix into a dough, then knead the dough for 15 minutes.
Slowly incorporating the cheese. Rest the dough until proofed, about 20 mintues.
Next, punch down the dough, and portion into 3-ounce dough balls.
Place into a greased cast iron skillet. Allow proofing again for 15 minutes. Grate some additional Parmesan cheese over the top before baking.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown at 350 degrees. Use the butter to melt over the warm rolls.
