Looking for Cracker-topped Wheat Roll Recipe

Hi, all....


A few years ago I was working at the Paris Las Vegas (Banquet Chef).  Our Executive Pastry Chef created a large number of rolls for a banquet, and I have been looking for a recipe for these rolls since I returned to California 2 years ago.  They were dubbed, simply "Torrified Wheat Rolls" on the menu...but they were topped with a thin disk of crispy, almost cracker-like bread (kind of like the rolls were wearing a beret).  All of my searches for a similar recipe have turned up nothing, and I was hoping someone here could help me out by either providing a real name for this bread style, or, even better, a recipe!!


 


Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give,


 


Chris,

They were popular a number of years ago by the name "chapeau rolls," for the little "hat." You can find a formula in Silverton and probably other books of that vintage.


 


The ones shown were very popular as a gift for a dinner party.
