Flaky Butterhorn Rolls
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 10 min./batch
This isn't a review, but a question. I'm not an experienced bread maker. These rolls look wonderful but my question is, must you add the sugar? I'm looking for something simple like this to make but I don't want a "sweet" roll. Thanks.
These are great! They rose so much that I when rolling the dough, I ended up with 3 1/2 dozen. I'm at my son's home watching grandchildren while he and my daughter-in-law went to the hospital to give birth to another one. The rolls were such a hit that the 2 I was sitting with wanted nothing but the rolls. They did indeed turn out fluffy and flaky. The dough reminded me of the refrigerated cans of crescent rolls so I've now made several dishes that i used to use the store bought ones for. Everything I've made with them is a big hit with everyone.Definitely a keeper!
I just made these rolls and I can honestly say they were the best rolls I have ever had in my life. I cut the recipe in half and it worked out perfectly. I did goof up and cut my rounds of dough into 8ths instead of 12ths, but they were still PERFECT! Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful recipe. I am not afraid to try my hand at yeast dough any more.
Followed the recipe to the letter and thought they were wonderful! I will definitely make these again!
I wonder who sent this in to TOH. No credit is given, unless I'm just missing it.
You're welcome, Mrs. America! (I shared this with a friend via the email feature in the recipe box.)These weren't as flaky as I'd hoped but to be absolutely fair, my yeast may have been a bit too old and I don't think they raised as they should have. They're still very tasty, my boyfriend compared them to having a "shortbread" flavour. I think the next time I try them I might sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on the dough after they're brushed with butter. As is, they'd be nice with jam or honey.I also won't try to cut them into 12 per section, some of them ended up "toddler" sized, while others were more "grown up" sized. Even at 8 rolls per section of dough, that still makes 32 butterhorns which is still plenty.Overall, worth the effort. I liked how the task could be divided overnight. The night before all you had to do was make the dough. The next day, all you had to do was roll them out, shape, raise and bake.
Thanks Miss Canada
