Thank you for all the wonderful comments you left on my guest post and thank you once again Chef Dennis for the invitation. Tonight I’m not going to write much since my post has 28 photos, yes 28, I do apologize for the length.

Today I’d like to share with you a photo tutorial on how to shape dinner rolls.

 

The dough is the same one I used for these dinner rolls (you can use whatever dough you are familiar with). I’m  going to start my tutorial from the moment the dough is divided in 12 balls.

(How to make) knots

Roll the ball into a 12 inches long rope. Tie a knot by pulling the ends through.

 

(How to make) spiral rolls

Roll the ball into a  20 inches long rope. Shape into a tight spiral tucking under the end.

 

(How to make) two spiral rolls

Roll the ball into a 24 inches long rope. Shape into a tight spiral from both ends.

 

(How to make) twisted rolls

Roll the ball into a 24 inches long rope. Twist in and shape it into a spiral roll.

(How to make) twisted braids

Roll the ball into a 20 inches long rope. Twist it. Pinch the ends together.

 

(How to make)  braids

Roll the ball into a 30 inches long rope.  Divide it in three and braid them neatly but not too tight. Pinch the ends together and tuck them under the braid.

 

(How to make) epi

Shape the ball into an oblong. Using scissors, make alternative diagonal cuts halfway through the dough.

 

(How to make) bagels

With your thumb poke a hole in the center of the ball. Pull gently to enlarge hole.

 

(How to make) cottage rolls

Divide the dough into 3/4 and 1/4. Shape them into balls. With your thumb, make a small well in the middle on the big ball. Place the small ball on top.

 

(How to make) clover leaf rolls

Divide the ball into 3 even sized balls. Place the three balls together in a triangle shape.

 

How to make baguettes

Roll the ball into an oblong. With a knife cut through the dough diagonally.

 

(How to make) cross-cut rolls

With the tip of a knife cut a cross through the dough.

 

 

Fresh from the oven.

 

Soooo good
