Do you love the smell of freshly made rolls, or the shine of melted butter brushed on top of warm rolls out of the oven? This class teaches guests how to activate yeast, knead dough, and how to form the perfect, uniform, and circular rolls. While the rolls continue to rise and bake, Adam will demonstrate how to make homemade apple butter for the rolls. Once the rolls are fresh out of the oven, they will be brushed with melted butter and enjoyed by all guests. Each guest will go home with the freshly baked rolls that they prepared during the class.
