Knock down dough and knead briefly. Divide into 3 equal parts and let rise 10 minutes. Divide each section into four pieces and shape into 12 rolls. Place rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes.

Best I have ever had. My kids made happy noises when they ate them.

I added herbs and parm, and they turned out like tiny loaves of Italian crusty bread, but still stayed so moist and delicious inside! Easy meets amazing, kudos

Very easy recipe! My recipe made 24 small rolls and I topped them with butter as soon as they came out of the oven. I've always had trouble working with yeast and these didn't rise much, but tasted good!
