audrey's buns


Before Christmas, my sweet visiting teacher, Audrey Stokes, invited me to her house to teach me how to make hot rolls. I have since been practicing at getting mine as soft and tasty as hers. Up here all the ladies use organic everything for cooking and it has rubbed off a bit on me. So these buns are made with organic milk, eggs, sugar, butter, salt and whole wheat ground from a wheat grinder! (I have yet to get my own, but I can't wait because you can taste the difference). So, seven months later, I can confidently say that I make a pretty good dinner roll! Thank you Audrey!
