For those of you who live in the Arkansas area you are probably familiar with the PBS show 'Arkansas Outdoors'. Thankfully the rest of us can view this program about outdoor cooking online. Phyllis Speer is a wonderful and very experienced dutch oven cook and if you haven't had a chance to view her videos I would highly recommend watching them, especially if you are new to dutch oven cooking. She has a very relaxed and easy way of cooking with her iron pots and always seems to be having a good time while doing it. I have tried several of her recipes and they are always good. Her recipe for Dutch Oven Garlic Rolls is a great way to start out with dutch oven baking. It uses a prepared roll mix and is good practice for not only baking with yeast breads but follows the same steps as making cinnamon rolls. I made these in my 12 inch oven with 12 coals in a ring around the bottom and around 22 on top, they were ready in 18 minutes. You can watch Phyllis prepare these tasty rolls here. Give these cheesy rolls a try and thank you Phyllis for another great recipe.
