Thank you, thank you for this method of preparing bread. I have a phobia of yeast bread recipes, but continue to try anyway, with miserable results - until now. I made Pakerhouse Rolls for Christmas dinner - and my DH almost fainted. They were light in texture and had a wonderful flavor. Last night I took the reminder of the dough and am attempting to make Cinnamon Rolls (a NEVER try for me), with the overnight method. Can't wait. I also used your How to Raise Dough in a Drafty Kitchen tip. Excellent! Thanks Pup.
These are absolutely delicious and SO SO VERY easy.. and the best part is - no kneading! I made all 3 versions - 6 parker house rolls, 6 clover leaf rolls and with the remaining dough, I got 12 cinnamon rolls! Thank you, Puppitypup, for sharing your family's wonderful recipe! Definitely a keeper, goes without saying!
