Adapted from Limara’s Péksége: the lady is brilliant. Her recipe makes eight of these scrumptious wiener rolls. Would you believe it the rising-time is only 45 minutes? The rolls turned out surprisingly lofty and delicious. I only needed six wiener rolls so I braided two rolls without wieners. Those were good too. No bakery buns or convenience products can come close to these freshly baked rolls. 

The worthy wiener for these great rolls is the European. The taste is better. I get mine at a tiny butcher shop; the owner is a second generation German trained butcher. Grocery chains also sell European wieners, though not every European wiener deserves the title. Always look for a trusted brand name, avoid the store brands. Brand name European wieners cost more than other brands, but they are worth the price difference.
