Garlic Swirl Rolls

Garlic Parmesan Rolls

I've been dreaming about these garlic parmesan rolls for a while now and they did not disappoint! I know I have a baking blog, but if I have to choose, it would be savory over sweet for me ANY day!
I am so excited to serve these on Shavuot. They are the perfect addition to any dairy meal, and freeze beautifully so it's easy to prep in advance.
