Baking ?, Pioneer Woman's Buttered Rosemary Rolls

ApartmentDweller | Jan 28, 2010 05:32 PM

Pioneer Woman (Ree) has done it again with another fab but simple recipe, Buttered Rosemary Rolls.


Baking novice here... Tonight I made these for the second time. Unfortunately, both times the proofed rolls COLLAPSED as/right after I was brushing the melted butter on them. The first time I thought that perhaps the butter was too warm. But this time I made sure that the melted butter had cooled, but the rolls collapsed (save for one) just the same.

What is causing this? Googling yielded that overproofing can cause collapse, but that doesn't explain the rapidity of onset post the butter brushing and why half of the rolls collapsed the first time and all but one collapsed this time.

Since I definitely plan to make these again, I would appreciate some guidance here as to what I'm doing wrong.

BTW, these rolls are AWESOME!! Their deflation didn't preclude my inhaling them. ... :)
