Pandesal (Filipino Bread Rolls)

I love Pandesal! This Filipino bread roll is a soft, fluffy, slightly sweet roll that is a staple in Filipino homes. Typically eaten for breakfast or merienda (snack) and perfect for dipping in coffee and/or hot chocolate. Since we are supposed to be staying in, I wanted to try to make some myself at home. I am not a baker by any means so baking for me always poses as a challenge. Took me 3 tries to perfect this and I am proud of myself hahaha.
