Rosette Dinner Rolls

For our Valentine's Menu, I tried out a new shape for the rolls. I used my standard recipe for dinner rolls, only formed them into a different shape. I love that about bread. I love playing with my food.
Oh and thanks to Freida who let me know that Rosettes are also called, "love knots!" Perfect for Valentines!


How to Shape Rosette Dinner Rolls: (please ignore my dry old lady hands)



Divide dough in half. Divide that half into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 12 inch rope. Tie the rope into a loose knot, leaving the ends long. Tuck the end on top underneath the roll and point towards the middle. Bring the bottom end up, and tuck into the center of the roll, see my finger? Place them on great baking sheet, 2-3 inches apart. Let rise and bake as directed. Makes 32 rolls.
