Whole Wheat Rolls
I am a magazine junkie. The checkout stand is my downfall. I love in particular cooking magazines, craft magazines and just anything creative.
A couple of weeks ago I bought the Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Baking magazine. The pumpkin praline pie on the cover won me over instantly, but inside I found another treasure....some recipes from King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking. Six different recipes with wonderful mouth watering photos of the end products. I was determined to try them.
Right away I made the Cheddar Onion Fantan Rolls....I didn't care for them. Personally I don't like onions in bread so I am not sure why I thought I would like these, LOL. Sorry, no picture of those but I did try the wheat rolls today.
I made a double recipe, let them rise, made the rolls and then let them sit in the fridge overnight. This morning I took them out and let them rise. The end result, they were pretty good but I know I can do better. Usually I make cloverleaf dinner rolls but I didn't have the time or the energy last night to do that so I tried to just roll them into balls and set them next to each in the pan (not touching). Most turned out ok but I think they would have looked much nicer as cloverleaf rolls. The double recipe made 31 rolls.
We took them to our Church Thanksgiving Feast today (along with a huge amount of sweet potato casserole). I had expected a lot of people but there was less than 30 of us. I think everyone was just as surprised as I was as there were 4 very large turkeys and a ton of other food. Even after dinner, 2nd's, 3rd's and taking home leftovers I have a little bit left of everything. (which was fine with me, LOL) Speaking of the sweet potato casserole, it had rave reviews and they loved it. I will def. make it every year from now on.
Happy Thanksgiving to all those who celebrated it today. : )
