This is my ultimate yeast rolls recipe. The rolls come out exceptionally flavorful, very soft, moist and flaky. They are pure perfection. They melt in your mouth and have a tendency to vanish in the blink of an eye, just like those good old Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies, remember them? I call these rolls the Vanishing Yeast Rolls. Make sure to make the full batch. They just go.
My favorite recipe for dinner rolls has been the recipe for Soft Garlic Buns I posted about some time ago. It’s a great recipe but lately I’ve been noticing that I have not been very happy with the results. The rolls would often lack that moist, airy crumb and flakiness I was looking for. Or they would be fine inside but pale and unattractive on the top. I’ve been experimenting with different flours and dough hydration, but with mixed results. They do taste much better with the garlic sauce, but not as well on their own.
