If anyone is interested, here is the recipe for Sally Lunn rolls. They serve these delicious rolls at the Liberty Tree Tavern. Back in February I called the chef at the Liberty Tree Tavern, and he was kind enough to mail me the recipe! Here it is, ENJOY!

1 cup milk
1/2 cup veg. shortening
1/4 cup water
4 cups sifted all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 pkgs. active yeast
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1)Butter 2 each 9 1/4 by 5 1/4 by 2 3/4 in loaf pan
2)Heat milk, shortening, and water until very warm; about 120 degrees. The shortening doesnt need to melt.
3)Combine 1 1/3 cups of flour and the sugar, salt and yeast in a large mixing bowl.
4)Add the warm liquids to the flour mixture. Beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes.
5)Gradually add 2/3 cups of flour and the eggs. Beat at high speed for 2 minutes.
6)Add 2 cups of flour. Mix well. The batter will be thick but not stiff.
7)Cover the dough and let rise in a warm, draft free place (85 degrees) until it doubles in bulk, about 1 1/4 hours.
8)Punch the dough down and divide it between the prepared pans.
9)Cover and let rise in a warm, draft free place until it has increased in bulk from 1/3 to 1/2.
10) Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes.
11) Remove from oven and cool on racks.

One question--do you make these into rolls-if so what size and shape? Or is it baked in the loaf pans like bread? We loved the rolls at the Liberty Tree Tavern-does anyone have a recipe for the salad?

I specifically asked the chef for the roll recipe but for some reason he gave me the recipe for 2 loaves of bread. I plan to try and make this recipe into rolls though. They were soooo delicious! Oh, and I forgot to mention earlier, for an extra special touch, serve them with apple butter or honey butter. YUM!!!

I was thinking about the bread and butter that they serve at the Liberty Tree Tavern the other day. Then I looked around and found this recipe. Cool!

I now will definately be making a PS for LTT. My DH and I ate at Sally Lunns in Bath England and those rolls are delicious!
