Mix the flour, sugar, salt and yeast in a bowl. Pour in the milk, add the egg and butter, mix and knead to form a soft dough. Cover and leave to rise at room temperature for approx. 1½ hrs. until doubled in size.
Garlic & herb butter
Mix the butter with the garlic and herbs.
On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a rectangle (approx. 20 x 60 cm), spread the butter on top, sprinkle with the cheese, press down gently. Roll the two short edges of the dough in towards the middle. Cut the roll into slices approx. 1.5 cm thick. Place the palmiers on two baking trays lined with baking paper, flatten slightly, cover and leave to rise for approx. 30 mins.
Approx. 20 mins. in an oven preheated to 180°C (convection), remove, allow to cool slightly on a rack.
