Thanksgiving Shaped Rolls

The best part of Thanksgiving is the warm ROLLS!  Here are THREE fancy (yet so very easy) Thanksgiving Shaped Roll ideas.  

Having a fun variety of rolls on Thanksgiving means there's a little something for everyone. These three styles are simple to make the morning of the big feast...and they'll taste like you've been working on them all day long!

Shaped Rolls
One staple on every Thanksgiving table is definitely a big basket of yeasty-delicious rolls. I'm not going to lie...even as a kid, I'd probably choose rolls over anything else as my number one food. I was carb-a-licious even back then!  Using one bag of Rhodes Dinner Rolls, you can make three unique roll styles to delight each of your guests. See the details below.

Shaped Roll Supplies
For these rolls, you'll need one bag of Rhodes dinner rolls (thawed, but still cold), cooking spray, a kitchen brush & shears, two tablespoons of melted butter, flour, and clear, plastic wrap.

Cloverleaf Rolls
 My first and favorite roll style is the Cloverleaf. They serve these at a cafeteria restaurant that I love...and I've eaten them since I was a kid. A few years ago, I realized how easy these are to make using Rhodes Dinner Rolls. 

Shaped Cloverleaf Rolls
1. Take a thawed roll and snip it in half with your kitchen shears. You'll want to go ahead and snip several rolls in half like this.
2. Ball up the roll halves.
3. Place three balls of dough into a muffin tin hole that has been sprayed with cooking spray, forming one roll.
4. Brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray and let rolls rise until doubled in size. Remove plastic wrap. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Butterflake Rolls
 These Butterflake Rolls are so melt-in-your-mouth delicious, your dinner guests won't even have to add extra butter to them. And, they're simple to make.

Butterflake Roll
1. Take two Rhodes dinner roll doughs and combine them into one roll.
2. Using your kitchen shears, snip a slit into the middle of the roll, but do not cut it all the way in half.
3. Make two more similar cuts on each side of the middle cut, for a total of five snips.
4. Place the cut roll into a cooking-sprayed muffin tin and brush melted butter into each cut. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Let rise until doubled in size. Remove plastic wrap. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Swirl Rolls
 These Swirl Rolls are something a little unexpected! 
Check out how easy they are to make below.

Swirl Rolls
1. Combine two Rhodes dinner rolls and form one long rope.
2. Roll your rope into flour.
3. Form your roll into a coil and place in sprayed muffin tin.
4. Make the top look a bit ice cream-swirlish!
5. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Let rise until doubled in size. Remove plastic wrap. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
