Cut into 1 inch slices


I had heard the hype about using dental floss to cut threw the dough, I tried it and thought the process was much too slow. If you use a knife it does push down your rounds making them odd shaped.  When I put them onto a cookie sheet, I just quickly reshaped them into a perfect circle before baking.

You can either place them in a 9×13 baking pan that has been greased and let rise until double again.  Then bake 350 for 15 minutes.


You can freeze them.  After cutting them, I place them onto cookie sheets and freeze solid.  After frozen solid I scrape them off and place into freezer plastic bags.


When I need a batch in the morning, I get them out the night before and place in the refrigerator in a pan to thaw overnight.  I sit out for about 30 minutes to let rise and then continue baking.

Drizzle with a powdered sugar glaze while still warm.

Simple recipe, just add powdered sugar and water to achieve a good consistency.

This makes 2–9×13 pans.
