I said I was going to make them, and I soooo did! The hard rolls turned out wonderful! Crusty on the outside and chewy softness on the inside. It was rather a long haul in the making. I started them at 8pm last night and we didn’t bite into them until 2:30pm today. Lots of just waiting time, but a process.
I made the dough last night…let it sit for an hour…and then put it in the fridge to sit overnight. Here they are rising in the morning after I shaped them.
The smell of yeasty bread permeated the house all day. Here is our bowl of homemade tastiness.
If you are thinking about giving this recipe a try, here are some additional thoughts. I think there is an error in the recipe with the salt–I used 1 1/2 Tablespoons of salt instead of 3. The rolls are also plenty big…I would probably make them a bit smaller next time.
