PPQ – Rocket Rolls
Iâ€™ve been MIA lately as far as Project Pastry Queen goes. Iâ€™ve missed some great recipes and hope to go back and make each one eventually. This week was my pick so of course I had to participate. I went with the Rocket Rolls with are the old-fashioned torpedo rolls we all know and love but with a new name.
Honestly, I think this is a really great recipe that will produce amazing rolls but I just didnâ€™t have time for it. My husband & children were waiting for me to leave for a party so I didnâ€™t let them rise enough and then didnâ€™t let them get brown enough. The insides were nice and fluffy but I think the proper rise time would have made them even softer. Check on Shawndaâ€™s rolls if you want proof of how great they really do look!
As with all bread recipes, I found that this one called for WAY too much water. I added a good 1/2 cup of flour to the dough, probably more. I also found it weird that the dough was supposed to be golf ball-sized for dinner rolls. Those are teeny tiny dinner rolls! Anyway, I halved the recipe and made â€œregularâ€ sized rolls which gave me an awkward 11 rolls. Donâ€™t do that â€“ youâ€™ll look silly when you try to serve 11 rolls.
