Jane's notes for this recipe:
This is my most frequently asked for bread.
This also comes from the Book Bread Machine Magic.
Feel free to change the herbs around a little, I always add more rosemary because I love it, and I have a pot growing outside

Put all bread ingredients in bread pan in the order given. Cut butter into 4 chunks and deposit in each corner.
Turn bread machine on, and it will beep when dough is complete, my bread machine this is exactly one hour.
Turn dough on a floured surface. Gently roll and stretch dough into a 24 inch rope.
In a small bowl combine the melted butter, garlic, and herbs.
With a sharp knife, divide the dough into 40 sections. The easiest way is to divide in half, that in half, and so on. I use a yard stick for this.
Roll each piece in a ball, dip in butter and place in a bundt pan, butter side down.
Cover and allow to rise double in size. I turn oven on low 2 minutes, turn it off, then put dough in to rise.
Heat oven to 375 degrees if your bread is still in oven, just leave it in. bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
