Italian knot bread
Unfortunately I did not make these rolls on time to participate to the previous challenge of the Bread Baking Babes, but I like to bake these rolls anyway.
You can find the recipe on Ilva's web log Lucullian Delights -an Italian Experience-, the host of this blog event, but also on the blogs of the other eleven Babes. I followed the recipe on Lien's web log, Notitie van Lien.
The recipe calls for lard. Instead of lard I used unsalted butter. Another substitute is shortening, which I do have in the fridge, but I was afraid I would miss to much flavor when adding this instead of lard.
The final dough was a very nice smooth dough to handle. The toughest part in making these rolls for me was to form the rolls. Of course I have put the most beautiful rolls at the front of my photo, but the first rolls I formed were nothing like it :-D
I liked these rolls very much. The taste, crust and texture were excellent. Sure I will bake these rolls more often.
