With all of the snow that we have been having here in Cape Cod, I have spent a lot of time cooking and baking. I have to be honest, it is really nice to cook and bake for the sheer pleasure of doing so. I spent time in my kitchen without having to worry about making it blog content or having to shoot it. It was nice to reconnect with my love for cooking. I genuinely love the process – chopping, mixing, stirring, kneading. I find it comforting and therapeutic.
There have been many days when we haven’t been able to leave the house and we have a lot of time to kill because school is closed. The kids and I have also been able to bake together and are learning how to be great bakers. I’m really proud of them. They helped me make these buttery Cloverleaf Rolls for Dixie Crystals. They liked shaping the dough balls and fitting them into the muffin tins.
If you have been afraid to make a yeast dough this is a great recipe to try. It is incredibly forgiving. You can also add fresh herbs to this dough like thyme or chives. Slathered with some soft butter – Oh. My. Word.
