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.
