Chocolate Chip Bread Rolls Recipe Tips

To split your dough into 16 reasonably equal rolls, split the dough into half, then each half into half again. Halve each section again then once more and, presto, you should have 16 pieces!

Okay. All you purest cooks close your eyes at this tip! Once when I was making these rolls, I accidentally used self-rising (self-raising) flour instead of the all purpose flour. This actually made the rolls rise even more when they were in the oven.

Do you make your own bread?

      I have in the past used a bread machine to make my own bread. I love the taste of fresh bread with butter. Yum
