Beer Rolls

Submitted by: John T. Jurkiewicz

 "A delicious dinner roll that is made from beer, honey, and a slight pinch of cinnamon. Excellent with turkey, roasts etc. Different beer may be substituted, but be advised that a highly hopped beer will create an astringent bitter taste. The unique taste comes from the malt used in making the beer."

Original recipe yield: 16 - 18 rolls.
