  1. Great job on the rolls and butter. If you freeze the left over butter, and when you use it the next time. The flavor profiles will be greatly enhanced! As for your cutting board, I use a hand sander to get out all the scratches, and stains. do not press hard on the sander. after you done sanding and washing the cutting board, and let it dry. I like to use Bamboo renew on my cutting board and all wooden utensils. What an idea situation is to coat the board or utensil and let it dry , and do as many repeats as you can. You will have a beautiful finish on your board. Be aware the wood will change in color, because the wood is thirsty. You will have such a beautiful finish on your board or wooden utensils. This product is a food grade product. You can buy it at Kroger’s

    As for me I go to the thrift store and when I see a used cutting board and as long as there is no cracks in the board I will buy it .I am collecting enough wooden cutting boards and wood utensils to give has Christmas gifts. I will let them pick out the ones they want. The product is called Bamboo Renew.

      • Hi I loved your recipe rolls thanks so much. The question I have is what flour did u use and what instant yeast I know u said 1 tbsp but my instant yeast come in a packet how would that work? I do have active yeast in a bottle also but wanna make sure which is best if u could please give me your Input advice in this. I would really appreciate it thank u

        • i believe it is one packet! i have never used them before, but i am almost positive there is 1 TBL in there, but it should say! I use SAF brand, in bulk. I buy mine from GFS but you can also buy it directly from King Arthur Flour!

  2. These are absolutely delicious! The recipe is easy to follow and the YouTube video made it even easier. Thanks for sharing

  3. This is the second year my daughter has asked me to bake your rolls for Thanksgiving. I had been using a Betty Crocker recipe for years, but these beat them hands down. Thanks for recipe.
