Rhodes Dinner Rolls, make it easy to make mini loaves,  baking one or 6 from one bag!

Mini Christmas Bread Loafs are so fun for holiday gift-giving! Made simple with Rhodes.

Mini loaves are so versatile, you can add more fruit, less nuts or change the ingredients to suit each person you are gifting them to.

A bag of Rhodes rolls makes the perfect gift!A One bag of Rhodes Dinner Rolls has 36 rolls inside (each mini loaf takes 6)....think how economical it is to use them for baking homemade gifts. A bag of rolls is a gift in itself!  With this gift 2 mini loaf pans and seasonal plates were added in addition to the loaf of bread

I made a similar recipe, but used whole bread loaves and filled them with butter, cinnamon and sugar. I drizzled the same glaze on after they baked (same time and temp) but they all started collapsing in on themselves while they were cooling. I dont think they were undercooked ( were golden and sounded hollow when tapped when they came out of the oven). Any ideas what i did wrong?
