Happy French Friday! I’m hoping to knock out two posts today…both last and this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipes. We will start with last week’s recipe (which I actually did make last week – I just didn’t get around to writing about it).
If you own Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table, you must make Bubble-Top Brioches! My kitchen smelled like a bakery while they were baking, and they tasted like they came from a bakery too.
Though these delicious rolls take some time to make (most of the time is “hands-off”), they are not difficult. After chilling the dough overnight, it is quite easy to work with. The dough is rolled into small balls that are placed into muffin tins (or individual brioche molds if you are lucky enough to have them), giving the rolls their “bubble-top” appearance.
Dorie gives instructions for making brioche loaves as well. This time I only made 6 of the bubble-top rolls and froze the rest of the dough for later use. Perhaps I will try a loaf.
This recipe is one of those “never would have made it if not for French Fridays with Dorie recipes”. It seemed very intimidating to try making brioche. But – wow! – I’m so glad I made these because they were wonderful.
