    I followed the recipe and it came out perfect. I have tried many Kaiser roll recipes and this one comes out the best by far. They were light and airy, not dense at all and had nice flavor. Will be my go to Kaiser roll recipe for sure.

    I am new to baking (actually new to cooking in general). This was my first attempt at a bread product. Mine did not look nearly as nice as Martha's but they tasted ok. I learned to use a larger bowl for rising. (The dough rose so far it cracked through the plastic wrap......twice!).

    They came out great and my husband who is a Rabbi told me he loved them better than any deli Kaiser roll he ever tried. Great with lox and cream cheese❤️

    authentic kaiser roll dough is made with egg whites not whole eggs...egg whites are what gives the rolls their crisp light texture...

    Taste great but takes some practice to perfect the knot

    Can the kaiser rolls be frozen and if so raw or baked. If raw after which rise can they get frozen and do they need to thaw before baking.
