Directions

  4. Preheat oven to 375°. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 4 dozen.
Freeze option: Partially bake rolls at 325° for 10 minutes. Freeze cooled partially baked rolls in resealable plastic freezer bags. To use, bake frozen rolls on greased baking sheets at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
