For one thing, I didn't mix the batter up real well, lol, and it sure made a mess in the bottom of my oven. (from the corn oil that overflowed I think). I have to giggle every time I think of that. We had just cleaned it about a month ago too.
So some of them were tough as nails, and one pan I couldn't even get out. Oh, and the recipe makes 5 pans of 12...that is a lot of rolls, even small ones, for 2 people, lol. I will try again because I am fascinated with them. I ate a dozen of them as it was. The cleaning lady took the rest of them home, not sure she liked them, but was probably afraid to say no, she didn't want them.
In another life I was an excellent cook. I am no longer. I don't remember how, for one thing, because Aud has done the cooking for the last 18 years until recently, and I have no memory. And hers was getting pretty bad (her cooking and her memory) and she decided she was through cooking, so I was elected. I am having to remember how to cook again. I am scouring the net and buying more cookbooks and slowly but surely am finding my way again. However, I have come upon a period where what I am cooking is not too good. I certainly hope that changes soon. Both Aud and I are fearful every time we sit down to eat one of my creations. These rolls are a prime example. My mind wanders off so much I forget where I am in a recipe. And with everything else that is going on, I am too tired to really think about it evidently. Sad thing is, we aren't losing any weight thanks to Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia.
