Dinner Rolls–Pull Apart and Gluten-Free
This recipe only takes a bit of planning and you can present gluten-free dinner rolls at almost any meal. The batter mixes up in no time thanks to a stand mixer. They do need to rise for about an hour (there is where the planning comes in) and bake for almost a half an hour, so give yourself enough time. Believe me, it will be worth it!
In just a 9-inch cake pan you can make nine light, fluffy dinner rolls. Your family will think you have been taking baking classes. Serve them with a fancy Sunday dinner or with a simple soup for a busy day’s dinner. The more you make them, the better you will become at being a gluten-free baker. Practice does make perfect. Just think, if you start practicing now, you will be fabulous by the holidays!
