Feast of the Assumption

For a tasty addition to dinner tonight I made home made bread... dinner rolls to be exact. And since it was a feast for Mother Mary the dinner rolls were formed into roses! These wonderful additions to our meal were fairly easy to fashion. Once you've let it rise (I let mine rise twice, punching down after the first 30 minutes and then additional rise of 1 hour), cut into sections then roll in hand to make a strand (like a rope). Tie a knot in the middle then loop each end over tuck under (into the center)... this will form the petal appearance. I let them rise again for about 30 minutes to an hour. Then bake at the recommended time for your recipe. About 2 minutes before timer goes off I remove them from the oven and spread melted butter (with a pastry brush) to the top of each rose and return to the oven for the last two minutes! Each of the 'roses' make a beautiful addition to any table or plate.

Maggie thinks they smelled super good, and wanted to know when she could expect her dinner roll!
