This delightful and delightfully easy recipe came from a cookbook put out by Dorothy Mengering, the mother of Late Night talk show host David Letterman.
- In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the sugar and rum and blend well, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
- Pour over the rolls in their foil package. Wrap tightly with foil and refrigerate overnight.
- When ready to serve, bake rolls in a 325-degree oven for 25 minutes.
I couldn't find Pepperidge Farm Party Rolls, so I googled them to see the ounce count, hoping I could come close....believe it or not, their website doesn't give that, just a number of rolls! So I had to guess. I chose to pick a higher quality roll and then provide my own foil pan. For future recipe reviewers...pick a roll that is shallow...nothing that is over an inch and a half. The marinade doesn't cover more than that, so the bottom half is amazingly potent and delicious, while the upper half isn't. I poked holes in the tops of my rolls with a toothpick, hoping for a better outcome :) However, I have to say that the extremely potent portion of my roll was "tres excellente",...although a little strong. I'll try this again with shorter rolls! Thanks for sharing!
I can't beleive something so simple ca be so good!
Oh, Yum! These were the most delectably wonderful rolls that I've had in a very long time. And so easy to make. I will make these quite often. My local grocery stores didn't have a 20-count package of Pepperidge Farm party rolls, so I opted for a party size package of sweet dinner rolls (in a foil tray). I sure hope they're close to the Pepperidge Farm variety as called for in this recipe. Thanks for a truly outstanding and winning recipe, loof.
