BUTTERHORNS

A project for a cold winter day, not when you're in a rush. It is an "art form" making bread, and quite satisfying too. These fresh dinner rolls melt like butter in your mouth, and we had them often on a weekend with our Saturday night supper. Mom always loved to make them, and usually we had them with homebaked beans and knockwurst/or hot dogs,as well as her "Apple" pie. Another favorite memory of mine! We lived South of Boston, and it was quite a popular or traditional meal in Massachusetts.
