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!
