Garlic pull-apart rolls recipe, Easy Cheesy Pull-Apart Rolls

Garlic pull-apart rolls are a cheesy, spongy and fluffy bread infused with herbs and garlicky flavor. These pull – apart rolls are a mash up of biscuits (American) and garlic bread leading to deliciousness. These rolls are very easy to make and can be easily accompanied with your morning coffee/ tea as breakfast or snack. All you need is 5 minutes for kneading, 5 minutes for mixing and arranging and your breakfast/ snack is ready! Not to forget the work done is less for this recipe compared to the wait time. I have used garlic powder in order to cut down its strong flavors but you can add chopped garlic too, also I used chopped cilantro for garnish and to make it more aromatic which can be skipped. So lets get to the making!
