So sorry that they didn’t turn out as you like. I knotted mine – and I agree, you can’t get gloss or anything to stick on top without an eggwash.

I think yours look great but I totally agree with you on this one. When I made them, the voice in the back of my head was saying “egg wash” but I ignored it. Dumb. I bought the special cutter and was annoyed that it didn’t make them look special. I would hand knot these if I made them again, but I doubt these will be repeated.

Who cares about looks if they taste good! You should never judge a roll by its wash anyway. Look delicious!

Sorry to hear that these were a disappointment for you. I loved the way mine turned out. I did the knotted shaping, and it worked great. And I was expecting, and got, hard rolls. (hard on the outside, that is) I don’t think of kaiser rolls as soft or fluffy.

Kaiser rolls are really really hard to shape. I made a bread a while back (Loretta Lynn’s white bread) that had the exact right texture and taste as kaiser rolls. Very light and very fluffy. Very . . .

Its hard to find a good roll recipe. I like the ones I made from a recipe from Smitten Kitchen. So far they were the lightest I have ever made.

Even if they don’t look the way you wanted…..from where I’m sitting they look fantastic. I would totally eat one! or maybe even two!

Knotting is the only way to go with these. And after about 3/4 of them it gets easier. Eggwash!! Yep, that is what they needed.

But they look delicious.
