Whenever I make these Parker House Rolls, I feel like I’ve stepped onto the set of “Mad Men.” I feel like donning a dress, pearls and heels and twisting my hair up into a beehive bun – all just to step into the kitchen and bake.
Of course, this never actually happens, but the Parker House Rolls have been a reality many times. This is mostly because they’re so delicious, and even more so because they’re very easy to make.
These rolls are a lot like the Pull-Apart Rolls
I made for Thanksgiving this year, only they’re not the same shape, nor are they baked close together to get that “pull-apart” effect (though they could be, if you like that sort of thing). They maintain the same buttery, flaky texture of a classic dinner roll and are perfect for accompanying your upcoming Christmas meal.
Considering they require little effort to prepare and freeze really well for up to a few weeks, you can make them whenever you have a few extra minutes to spare and freeze them until your holiday celebration.
Heck, if you want, you can even use the time you’ve saved making these rolls to dress up “Mad Men” style for Christmas. That is, if you want to. To me, heels in the kitchen are never required.
