Parker house rolls are invented in 1870's in Parker House Hotel,Boston.These rolls are soft,buttery with a slight sweet taste.The shape of the roll is quite interesting and made by folding the circle or oval shaped,flattened dough in half.
I have seen these rolls in television cookery shows but never attempted to try.When I wanted to make a roll for Bake-A-Thon,the first thing came in my mind was this one.Since it was my first trial I made it in a very small quantity.The rolls are so soft and vanished as soon as I clicked.Off to the recipe.........
- I used a smaller baking tray to keep the rolled dough but after the second raise there were no space,so I changed it to large baking tray
- The rolls taste better when it is served warm,just microwave it for 5 seconds and serve. .
- The sweetness was just perfect if you want it a bit sweeter version then add you can increase the amount of sugar while kneading the dough.
