Crispy Salt Butter Rolls

Crispy salt butter rolls are a delightful bakery treat made from a soft dough that is rolled out thin, filled with a butter block, and then sprinkled with coarse salt on top. These rolls are baked with steam, creating a flavorful roll with a crisp exterior and a tender interior, perfect for enjoying as a savory snack or alongside a meal. 

It’s a great alternative to pretzel rolls or even croissants.
