I used a frozen loaf of bread dough, but followed the other ingredients and technique. The recipe made a lovely (& well received) pan of rolls. I would make these again to serve with a pot of spaghetti or pasta. They have a pretty presentation too. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
Yum Yum, I cheated a bit and used some puff pastry with the pesto filling which made for yummy appetisers, a definite keeper, thanks!
Outstanding!!! These are wonderful to look at and flavorful to eat! I could not for the life of me find hot roll mix anywhere, so I used a box of Krusteaz Bread Mix. I had to add some flour to get the right consistence, but that was no fault of the recipe. They turned out fabulous. I am sure I will make these again and again. I think I may try rolling out a loaf of Rhoades frozen bread dough for added ease and see how that goes. Apparently they don't sell boxed roll mix in Alaska. At least not that I can find. Thanks Cookie for another keeper!!!! :D
