The Best Rolls Ever ~ Just Ask My Niece!

I had a lovely family dinner at mine on the weekend, enjoyed trying a few new things, something that I don't often do in the family setting. I never cook the same thing twice at work, but at home we have our tried and true faves. As you know I love making bread, there is something so satisfying about a risen dough that defies the telling! The dough is quite pliable, but tight, as opposed to soft for these, so enjoy, make it a family project. I think the dough could stand a child or two using it like play dough, and such yummy results!

If bread is the staff of life, then this is a great way to live! Enjoy!
