Just Rollin’ Along

Did get up and take a break from my ‘Lost’ marathon in order to give this recipe a try.  As much as I love crusty bread, I also love soft, yeast rolls.   The kind you get in restaurants.  Texter also is a big roll love too.  I had come across a couple of Texas Roadhouse roll recipes, but finally decided to give this Honey Roll recipe a try.  Another thing that interested me was that it was also for the bread machine.  I don’t have the knack for kneading down yet.

PC230020  Ok, so I need to work on my uniformity with crafting rolls.  And unfortunately, I forgot, in the heat of the moment, so to speak, to take a picture of the final product.  But they were definitely of the texture I was looking for.  Needed to pull out of the oven just a minute or two earlier or cover the top of the rolls, because they did get a little over baked and crunchy.  But this is definitely a keeper.  And a recipe I can half easily.  Doing it again I would probably have some honey butter made up to butter the rolls with while eating.  I have a big jar of local honey I bought at the farmer’s market just begging to be used.
