The stamp didn't work worth a darn. My Kaiser rolls, though ridiculously delicious, didn't turn out with the separate "blooms" which I think are trademark to the Kaiser. I tried my hand at knotting a few of them and I actually think I like the look of them better than the stamped ones, even though they don't scream "Kaiser roll" to me.
Other than the shaping problem, this was a wonderful recipe. The dough was a delight to work with; very soft and supple, and the taste of the finished product was fantastic. I made a batch of pulled pork in the crockpot and we ate pulled pork and creamy coleslaw sandwiches for dinner tonight.
Thanks again to Nicole over at Pinch My Salt for keeping us all motivated. I'm looking forward to making Lavash crackers next week!
