Dude Ranch Butterflake Dinner Rolls – Country Inn Style
Light, buttery, with lots and lots of layers, Country Inn style dinner rolls are always popular. It takes a bit of time to roll out and create the layers, but then the rolls can be frozen indefinitely – very important for managing our dude ranch and B&B schedules – they will rise as they defrost. More time for horse back riding and enjoying our guests’ family vacations!
