Ingredients

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

Directions

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.
