In step 13, "I divide by cutting dough piece in half and then each of those pieces in half--continuing until I have 24 pieces," the math just doesn't work. Two, four, eight, sixteen, thirty-two...the sequence does not include twenty-four. I weigh my dough in thirds. Then the sequence is three, six, twelve, and twenty-four. If you don't have a digital scale, shame on you--you are not a real bread baker.
I usually make butterhorn rolls for all of the family gatherings, I think they would send me home if I didn't! I'm really into potato bread lately so I decided to tempt fate and make these for a change. Everyone liked them better than the butterhorns! I didn't refridgerate because I didn't have time. I also brushed them with milk for a brown crust before I baked them and brushed them with honey butter when they came out. Thanks so much, I am making a double batch now for our Christmas Eve festivities!
Delicious! The taste and texture is very familiar and like what I grew up eating in German Mennonite homes and restaurants. Thanks for sharing!
Just made these today and they are great. I've been looking for the perfect dinner roll, this is perfection. I did cut the recipe in half as there are just two of us. Unfortunately I made an error and put in the full amount of sugar. They were very sweet to me but I had trouble keeping my DH out of them until dinner! Thank you, I now have the perfect dinner roll recipe!
These were great. I used the exact amounts of the ingredients, but had my bread maker do the work. After the dough was ready, I made them just like the recipe called for. I'll make them again! Thanks Sharlene.
I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving and all my co-workers and families were very impressed. I love to cook and absolutely loved the wonderful taste of these rolls. Have given the recipe to several friends. Also am making them again for Christmas. Thanks again Sharlene for posting this great recipe.
Made this as a test run for Thanksgiving. I think the flavor could be kicked up a tiny bit, but I'll just increase the salt/butter next time. I also used half whole wheat and they were good.
I really love this recipe; it's such a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes! My rolls didn't rise much but I'll just have to try it again sometime. They still tast great and freeze wonderfully! Thanks!
Wonderful! I had problems with the rising part but I blame the winter poking its way through my kitchen vent. Wonderful taste and everyone thought they were store-bought! I'll take that as a compliment. I stored it overnight in the fridge, took them out in the morning to rise and cooked it alongside the Easter ham. Num-o!
Made these with a basil/garlic/onion/salt/pepper and olive oil spread..baked it right on. They were very delicious. I'll be making these again. :) I reduced the recipe to 15 rolls and it worked just fine. I might add a bit more of the mashed potatoes next time and see what happens.
