Flower Pot Dinner Rolls

@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

Flower Pot Dinner Rolls


2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 oz butter; room temp
1/2 ts salt
1 ts instant yeast
1  egg
1/2 cup warm water; 110 F.

Important! This recipe can not be completed with unseasoned clay flower pots.
You must season them first before using.  These are a 2" clay pot that 
I bought at the local hobby shop...since there were none available at the local garden shops.   
Just be sure to wash well and dry before seasoning.  

To season, spread interiors with a good smear of Crisco shortening. Place
in hot oven, 450F. for thirty minutes. Repeat after pots have cooled
completely. You will have a nice glaze on the interior so your rolls don't
stick. Every time you use the pots, you will need to 
spray again with Pam for easy removal.

Add flour, sugar, butter, salt, instant yeast and egg in mixer bowl. Mix on
medium speed until all is combined. Add water, slowly 
until you achieve a "shaggy" dough.

Mix until smooth and satiny, about five minutes. Remove bowl from mixer and
cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place for about an hour.

Divide dough into eight portions. Dust hands with flour to prevent sticking
since dough is very sticky.

Spray eight 2" clay flower pots with Pam. I set the pots in a 12 portion
muffin pan for ease in transporting to and from oven. Form a ball out of
the eight portions and place one in each pot. Let rise for 30 minutes or
until doubled.

Preheat oven to 425F. Bake flower pots for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden
brown. Remove rolls  from pots to let some of the steam escape. 
Replace in pots for serving.

Sprayed with Pam and ready to fill  

Ready for the second rise


After baking, I remove from the pots so the steam can escape 
to prevent soggy bottoms.  If preparing before dinner, you can
place the empty pots back in the oven to warm and the
replace the room temperature rolls back in the pots to reheat.
