Classic Anise Dinner Rolls #BreadBakers

Classic Anise Dinner RollsWelcome to another delicious #BreadBakers month, and we have on this occasion some ideas to make on the thanksgiving dinner, or maybe a good hot and perfect breakfast the day after, you can decide what is best for you.
I made, a classic in my family, Anise dinner rolls, yes this are a must, and my family loves the flavor, texture and of course the they can eat it at any time of the day.
They are delicious just out of the oven, but be careful you can really burn your mouth. They are also very rustic, and that is something my grandma always taught me, homemade is better than anything you can find in the most expensive store.
I’m sure this is a new flavor the you can really enjoy.
Let me know how you like this little delicious pieces of bread.
