These tasty and beautiful Cranberry Walnut Rolls are delicious served warm with butter for breakfast or the holiday table.
Are you done with turkey yet? If not, there are probably a lot more turkey recipes out there. I am going to take a break from turkey this week. With Christmas coming up real soon, you may want to consider these beautiful rolls for your next holiday table.
Cranberry Walnut Rolls
The health food store I go to makes these Cranberry Walnut Rolls every day. They are very popular and are often sold out around the holidays. So as not to be disappointed, I decided to make them myself this time.
Fortunately, I had all the ingredients on hand and so I put the bread machine to work using a basic bridge rolls recipe. I omitted the eggs but added dried cranberries and chopped walnuts to the dough. The rolls turned out beautifully. They were very tasty served warm with butter. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
