TIMESAVING HELPERS FOR THANKSGIVING & CHRISTMAS
* Make the dough for your bread or rolls a few weeks ahead of time. Allow the dough to rise fully once, shape it, wrap it well in freezer-safe plastic wrap or foil and freeze. When ready to bake, thaw the dough in the refrigerator. This will usually take a least a few hours or overnight. Set it in a warm place and give it its second rise and bake.
* If you have a bread machine use it to mix the dough. Bake the bread the night before the big day and refresh it in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes just before serving.
