Last week something caught my attention on FB.. Home Bakers Challenge it was, a group in which members take up the challenge of baking different baked goodies. After having seen some of the pictures posted by different members of the group, floating on FB, I begged the admin to add me as well in the same group. She accepted my request and told me that , I can take up the challenge from next month on-wards. But I got very impatient with the chocolate bread rolls, which was the latest challenge. I browsed one of the member's recipe and made the dough accordingly but designed it in the form of a crescent roll.

The filling was of chocolate in the recipe, but I tried with chocolate, peanut butter, a mix of both and mozarella cheese... The scent of the baked dough wafting through the house was amazing and I couldn't resist myself till it got baked.

This dough served as an all-rounder in my kitchen that day... Made 16 crescent rolls.. With the remaining dough I made pizza like Arabic dish with cheese and Zaatar, which is another form of oregano. Hubby loves it and often has it from the Arabic bakery in our neighborhood. So that I thought I would give it a go. And it almost resembled the same.

Still there was some dough remaining , with which I fried some battooras to have with afternoon's some left over curry... So my idea to make some chocolate rolls worked as a life-saver for the day. For the given quantity you get a quite a lot of dough, enough to feed  a 2 adult, 2 kids family.
