These rolls are so easy to prepare, can be made with whichever flour you want and are loved by kids! What more can you ask for?
This dough works with any type of flour, but use some white flour for best results. I’ve done half white, half whole wheat, or half spelt. Each batch of rolls came out delicious.
For easy shaping, roll out the dough and cut out circles using a glass. Use the bits that are leftover in between the circles and tuck them under the rolls. They’ll give them extra height and after baking you’ll love breaking off those pieces of fresh delicious goodness.
