Recipe by Calee

Using Kittencal's Hamburger/Burger Buns I have tried other dough recipes and this one works the best. These twists are a special treat for my family's lunches.

My daughter doesn't like sandwiches (makes lunch bags difficult!) but gave the "go-ahead" when she saw your photo. I used Recipe #117322 (since I had it on hand) and it worked really well, since it makes really puffy rolls I didn't even need to let rise for the second time). They turned out like your photo, too! This is the third day I've put them in my daughter's lunch and I haven't heard any complaints. Thanks Calee! Roxygirl
