Countdown to Thanksgiving......The Rolls!!!!


Pumpkin-shaped Rolls for Thanksgiving!  So easy..

I love the holidays....and my house is already sporting my Thanksgiving decor!  As much as I love the holidays, I hate the stress that can accompany them.  Soooo, I will be posting (and planning) ideas for Thanksgiving so that when the big day comes....I can be ready and relaxed.

One of the crowd favorites are.....ROLLS!!!  I have made different types over the years. Some were more preferred than others.  This year, I have something fun for you to try....


You can do this with home-made dough or the 'frozen' option.  Yes, these are the frozen option....let's just say that I was in a hurry!  I let them unthaw for about an hour. Then I used my kitchen shears and made 8 cuts-slits around the roll.  


After making the cuts, cover the rolls with a towel and allow them rise per the directions of your recipe or your frozen-roll dough.


When they have risen sufficiently, use a kitchen tool with a rounded-end. Make an indention in the middle of the rolls.


Here you see my rolls with the circular indention's.


 Brush with egg-white. This gives you a glossy finish and a firm crust.


Oh, and just before baking insert either a walnut or pecan nut or sliver.  I used Almond slivers here.


Baked according to directions.  These are cute and fun!  It is a nice addition to any Thanksgiving table.  So easy and delicious too!

Try it!
