Garlic-Herb Parmesan Rolls Recipe

Garlic-Herb Parmesan Rolls Recipe

Fresh-baked yeast rolls are always a hit at dinners. To make it easy on the cook, these start in the bread machine. They are arranged in a tree-shape for the yuletide season, but they can also be baked in a 13- x 9-inch baking pan. —Lorri Reinhardt, Big Bend, Wisconsin
