I love to bake and even have a small business selling bread. Making rolls and bread from scratch is an art easily mastered with practice. The swirled shape of these rolls is very attractive.

  5. Place rolls, cut side up, in greased muffin cups. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  6. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Brush with additional butter. Cool. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 25, 2010

These do not seem like they will turn out. The dough is lumpy and different, then overnight... MAGIC! Unbelievable. I use WW pastry flour, that probably helps too. SOO good and light for a wheat roll.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 5, 2010

The rolls were flavorful and had a great texture. The swirly shape made adding more butter tricky, but the kids enjoyed pulling them apart. The honey adds a nice touch of flavor. All in all, they were a tasty hit!
