Are you dinner roll with your Thanksgiving meal people? My family always had a bread basket on the table with rolls and a full stick of butter on the side. I always loved sopping up the gravy and sauces and making mini turkey sandwiches later in the night when I realized I was hungry again. Our rolls were normally store-bought, nothing special but they served their carby purpose and everyone was happy.
Well…I have now tasted what were the most fabulous, soft, pillowy, buttery rolls that I am ruined for life. Never again could I even consider a store-bought dinner roll as these were both easy and fantastic. The texture was out of this world- they almost had a croissant-like taste, so buttery and rich. Dipped in a bowl of pea soup we enjoyed these immensely over the weekend, (Hugo had 3!) but I know they will be a huge hit with my family for Thanksgiving as well. If your Thanksgiving spread needs a bread basket I highly recommend these gorgeous rolls make it to your table.
* If I had wanted these to be perfectly the same size, I would have measured each one to weigh 1.5 oz on my kitchen scale. I eyeballed it though and was fine with them being a bit more rustic. To shape them into round rolls, I cut off the portion of dough, turned all the edges under and pinched them together to form a ball.
