Roasted Garlic Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

We had friends come over to our new house for dinner and I wanted to make a batch of fresh dinner rolls to go with our meal. I used my Whole Wheat Dinner Roll recipe but decided to add two heads of roasted garlic to the dough. I am still getting used to the new oven so the top of the rolls got a little extra brown but they were still light, fluffy, and delicious! The garlic gave the rolls a nice subtle garlic flavor that we all, even the kids, enjoyed.

    Hi Pam!
    I’m Christine from Indonesia, been an avid reader since long time ago but this is my first comment. I wonder if I can make this by hand since I don’t have a bread machine. You left the machine worked for an hour and half? Does it mean that it will take me longer by hand?
