For a cute roll to impress all the of your guests, try this recipe. It will go wonderfully with a tasty soup.—Rhodes Bake-N-Serv, Jenna Jackson, Salt Lake City, Utah
4 ServingsPrep: 10 min. + rising Bake: 20 min.


  • 4 frozen Texas Rolls (2 ounces each), thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten


  • For each mitten, press one and a half rolls together and flatten into
  • a 3-in. x 2-in. oval. Place on a greased baking sheet. Roll
  • remaining dough into two 3-in. ropes. Flatten ropes slightly and
  • place at bottom of ovals, forming a wristband. With a sharp knife or
  • kitchen shears, cut into the side of the oval at a downward angle
  • toward the center. Tuck the tip under to form a round thumb; spread
  • thumb and mitten apart to allow for rising. Cover with plastic wrap
  • that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Let rise in a warm place
  • until doubled, about 30 minutes. Brush with egg. Bake at 350°
  • for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 2 buns.
Editor's Note: Mittens may be sliced horizontally and filled as a sandwich.
