buttercrust flake-apart perfection!


and the buttercrust flake-apart recipe:

A delightful buttermilk flavor with the ease of no-knead dough...serve tender, warm dinner rolls in 2 1/2 hours.

Buttercrust Flake-aparts
Pillsbury's Bake Off Breads Cook Book
  • 4 1/4 to 5 Cups Pillsbury's Best All purpose Flour (for use with self-rising flour, omit salt)
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon soda
  • 2 pkgs. active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 buttermilk or sour milk
  • 1/2 cup butter (or margarine)melted butter

OVEN 400° 20 ROLLS
1) In large mixer bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, sugar, salt, soda and dry yeast.

2) In saucepan, heat buttermilk and butter until buttermilk is warm. (butter does not need to melt.) Add to flour mixture.

3) Blend at lowest speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at medium, speed.

4) By hand, stir in remaining flour to form a stiff dough.

5) Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, about 1 hour.

6) punch down dough. Roll out on floured surface to a 15-inch square. Brush with melted butter (you can just use soft margarine from the tub if you like).

7) Cut into strips 1 1/2 inches wide; stack five strips together. Cut into pieces 1 1/2 inches long. Place cut-side down in greased muffin cups. Cover; let rise until light and doubled in size, about 30-minutes.

8) Bake at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. serve warm.

looks delicious!
we love buttercrust flake-aparts, but i only take the time at thanksgiving to make them. they're a lot more time intensive than a loaf of sourdough.
i've been thinking about chicken soup for the last week. i need to make some for our freezer for easy dinners.

What is it about kids throwing things into their milk? Bonden would throw his veggies into the milk--but then he would eat them! It can't have been too yummy. He grew out of it.

Your rolls look delicious. I might have to try those the next time I decide to deviate from my usual croissant dinner rolls.
