Lazy Weekend

We had a very lazy weekend this weekend. It was fabulous! I also took a break from cooking. I know, I know...Me not cooking? Scandalous isn't it? ;o)

Here's a couple of picture of the rolls I made on Friday before my cooking strike. I found a recipe for Parker House Rolls over at Dine and Dish and decided to try them and oh my they were heavenly!

The dough was beautiful!

It was elastic and wonderful! Truly some of the best dough I've worked with!

And the rolls turned out beautifully too!

They rose perfectly and continued to grow while they were in the oven!

And the inside...

The inside was light and airy! Delicious!

Now the basics of what I did. I halved the recipe and it made about 15 rolls. I also let my mixer do the last kneading step with just the regular paddle attachment for 2 1/2 minutes on low instead of 10 by hand. I cut the rolls, but didn't fold them. I just left them to rise and then brushed them with butter before baking. I'll definitely be making these again!

I'll be back tomorrow with a new recipe and such. My cooking strike is over! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend as well. I know I did!

They reminded me a lot of the ones that Chris's grandmother used to make. Very similar!
