We used to call them "croissants" or "horseshoe rolls"

  I started baking bread after many years in January during the floods and have since got to the stage where we don't buy bread anymore.  Not a hard task as the supermarket bread is unspeakable.  Hubby is enjoying really fresh bread for sandwiches etc.

What I would really like to make is what we used to call croissants.  These days, croissants are a different thing altogether, made with butter and soft.

The rolls I remember were crusty on the outside, and tasy and delicious on the inside.
