Spoon Rolls Recipe by Trisha Yearwood
“I always loved homemade biscuits and rolls,” notes Trisha Yearwood when talking about her spoon rolls recipe, which she shared in a recent issue of People Country. “But I had the misconception that it’s got to be way harder than just going to the store and buying them. It is a little more time consuming, but it’s not an all-day thing.”
“These are fairly simple recipes,” the superstar wife, mother and hitmaker continues. “And what I love about the spoon rolls is you can keep the batter in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks. You can have fresh rolls every night!”
