What is Parker House Dinner Rolls?
This parker house rolls are made in Omni Parker House Hotel (built in 1855), a hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. They prepared and served two famous American food, Parker house rolls and Boston cream pie. Parker house rolls are delicious and special because of the butter. Beauty of the recipe is you need to brush the butter in between while making Parker House Dinner Rolls. A Parker House roll is a bread roll made by flattening the center of a ball of dough with a rolling pin so that it becomes an oval shape and then folding the oval in half.
How I made Garlic and Rosemary Parker House Dinner Rolls?
I think when you bake the bread from scratch, starting from mixing, measuring and pouring and finally when you wait patiently for the product of your love that is the end result (the dinner rolls) – the joy it brings always makes it worth it. And with Fleischmann’s 150 years of experience, you can bake quality, yeast recipes you’re proud to share. The offering that you baked yourself expresses more than words can say.
I used the basic dinner rolls recipe from Fleischmann's® RapidRise® Yeast site. Add water heated to 120˚F-130˚F and follow recipe instructions. Always use a thermometer to check temperature. And the yeast shouldn’t be expired. That is often the reason of ‘not rising’. You need to just mix everything and leave it for 10 minutes.
Then shape and rise second time and bake it. I found that brushing with fresh garlic and herbs in butter or oil after when dinner just out of the oven gives more flavor and bites than incorporating it in the dough. This inspiration is from my Pampushky /ukrainian garlic bread
This Garlic and Rosemary Parker House Dinner rolls are easy to make. I found that it is not that easy to shape as the original Parker House Dinner rolls as it requires flattening in the center of a ball of dough with a rolling pin so that it becomes an oval shape and then folding the oval in half. Instead of that I just rolled the a ball of dough into 2 X 3 ½ inch rectangle and then brush with butter and fold them to keep in place.
I didn’t do any egg-wash. Once the dinner rolls come out of the oven it is brushed with garlic -rosemary butter with pinch of salt in it.
They are best of best when you serve fresh. The next day, they are also very good if you keep them in airtight bags. Just warm them when you need them.
Give it try and you will like it. This recipe makes 12 dinner rolls, but the unbaked rolls freeze well.
