    Sharlene~W's Note:

    These are rich and full of butter! I recently shaped these rolls in balls. When they were done, I brushed the tops with melted butter and then topped them (a row each) with toasted poppy seeds, toasted sesame seeds, a combo of equal parts dill weed/kosher salt/sugar, and Parmesan cheese. I loved how they turned out.

      I was so skeptical, cause all the recipes I tried lately were not good, They were either heavy and dense or too sweet or just plain yucky. This one is sooo good ! And I used just all purpose flour, I cant imagine how it would of been with the bread flour, and A.P flour together. This is the BEST ! Anyone who is a novice or begginer, should have this one in their recipe box or folder.Tender and delicate warm butter dripping down the sides glistening over the crevices of the roll is utter sinful, with a few sprinkles of gray sea salt to entice your taste buds. Give it a try ! Two thumbs way up !!!

      These rolls were a HUGE hit at Thanksgiving. For no other reason that I could because no one was there to stop me at 5:00 a.m., I substituted buttermilk for regular milk. This was my first time preparing Parker House rolls and certainly not my last. Thanks for posting!
