I wish i could go for 5 stars but less than 24hrs these were going stale. They do taste wonderful and were a joy to bake. They seem to be freezing very well as i have made another batch which i froze once cool. If eaten as soon as defrosted and warmed a little, they are just as wonderful as when first cooked.
The title says it. I have made this bread 3 times. The first time I put a little Italian seasoning, and Parmesan on half of them. The smell throughout the house was awesome. And the taste, forget about it, delish. Next time I made it I added the seasoning to the dough, and on top, for garlic bread. The dough is so nice to work with. I will use this recipe forever. Thanks.
These were great, and very easy too. I made mine a bit larger so I could use them for sandwiches - yielded 12 rolls instead of 16. They were still done in 20 minutes. Thanks!
