Play With Your Food

What a fun thing to do with your rolls. And great for St. Patrick's Day!


Pour 3/4 C. water into your mixer bowl. Add 2 tsp. rapid rise yeast, 2 T. sugar, 1 egg, 1 1/2 T. olive oil and 1 tsp. salt.


Gradually add 2 1/2 C. of flour. Knead until you have a smooth ball of dough.


Let rise until doubled.


While it is rising, enjoy your snow!


Mine has melted already.


What a winter!


Form the risen dough into rolls. Let them rise about 30 minutes. Brush the top of each roll with a mixture made by whisking one egg with 1 tsp. of water. Press some flat leaf parsley on the top of each roll and brush it again with the egg mixture.


Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes until the rolls turn golden.

Since I'm part Irish those rolls almost bring tears to my eyes, but that wouldn't stop me from downing a bunch while I'm crying. Well done October! Richard

Had to chuckle. Love the way you threw in those pictures of snow to enjoy... while the dough was rising. All mine melted. It looks dreary outside my window today. But those sprigs of parsley on top of the rolls makes me happy. GREAT idea.

I have recently started following your blog - and am many pages deep and I keep seeing your MIXER - it looks like it has an attachment that scrapes as it mixes/kneads? WHAT kind of mixer is this?

The rolls look delicious and pretty! I could easily envision eating the rolls and drinking hot chocolate in your snowy, wintery garden. Maybe throwing one to Teddy to eat too. Thanks for another great post.
