Baking In Mini Terra Cotta Pots

By Karin Brosnan - Friday, March 15, 2013

I love to serve rolls in a fun ways especially at Easter. This particular way of serving them in mini terra cotta pots is just too adorable! First you need to "prepare" the little pots here is a great tutorial on how to do that on Ehow

You could top your rolls with sesame seeds or poppy seeds. I used poppy seeds after I brushed the tops with a little melted butter.

After your pots have been prepared...and are ready to start baking. I greased each little pot with crisco to make it easier for the roll to come out.

For the rolls I used frozen Rhodes dinner rolls.

I cut each roll in half ...I think I would have liked them better if I had used a whole roll in my little pots so they could have been up over the top of the pot..

Then I simply plopped my half pieces into the pots, sprinkled them with poppy seeds and baked them for the same amount of time the package calls for..I think 15 to 20 minutes.

Super cute and EASY! You could top them with some fresh herbs, or maybe roll the dough balls in melted butter and lemon or orange zest for a springy flavor. Whatever you decide to do they will turn out "adorbs" that's the new abbreviation for I am told by my 17 year old niece.
