I love the taste of homemade rolls. In fact, I have one recipe that I named after my daughter-in-law because I made them for the first time for her birthday dinner. The outside was warm and brown and the inside was light, airy, and almost doughy.

I have never been able to repeat that success because I tried to bake the rolls on 350 degrees with the other foods in the oven. I think they have to be baked at 400  degrees.

This year for her birthday dinner I found how to make “Brown-and-Serve” rolls.  Use your favorite recipe for rolls and bake them at 275 degrees for 20 minutes (do not allow to brown). Remove from pans; cool to room temperature. Wrap in aluminum foil. Store in refrigerator no longer than 8 days or freeze no longer than 2 months. At serving time, heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

I saw the cutest rolls on Facebook the other day. After the rolls had risen, they snipped 2 “ears” and poked 2 “eyes” into the front of them.  When they baked them they looked like rabbits.
