Tips and Tricks For Fast and Easy Rolls:

 

  • Make sure that your yeast is fresh, good and room temperature.
  • Remember with all yeast doughs, it’s ok if you have to add more flour or use less flour than the recipe calls for.
  • There are many factors that affect the amount of flour that you will need to use, such as: the way you measure flour, the elevation, the weather, and humidity.

 

How Can I Speed Up the Time That it Takes For the Rolls to Rise?

 

  • Place a cake pan 1/2 full of water in the oven.
  • Set the oven @170 degrees and then when the oven gets up to temperature, turn the oven off, leaving the pan of water in the oven.
  • Place the rolls in the oven, and allow the rolls to rise – it usually takes about 15-25 minutes. 
  • Then go ahead and bake your rolls, as directed.

 

What Can I Put on My Homemade Rolls?

 

  • Try using strawberry jam, or any other flavor that you want.
  • How about some honey butter, or some people even really enjoy strawberry butter.
  • Then there is always the left over turkey with a little mayonnaise, lettuce and a pickle. That is one of my favorites!!!
