3/4 tsp salt

Place all ingredients in bread pan according to manufacturer's directions. Select dough setting.

When dough cycle has finished, remove bread pan, and turn out dough onto a floured countertop. Gently roll and shape the dough into an 18" rope. 

With a sharp knife, divide dough into 16 pieces.

Grease 2 baking sheets. Roll pieces of dough into small balls and flatten. Place on prepared baking sheet. Cover and let rise in warm oven 10 to 15 minutes until almost doubled.
