gluten-free dinner rolls for Thanksgiving

Soft, buttery dinner rolls to pass around the Thanksgiving dinner table. Dip them in gravy? Will they hold up? You bet.

Look at this. It’s possible.

Now here’s the deal. If you were paying attention to the video, and you’re a confident baker, you can probably figure out these rolls by yourself.

But if you want the recipe, it’s available on our Gluten-Free Thanksgiving baking iPad app.

    I REALLY admire your confidence, passion for food and love of people. I admire them in you because I really don’t see them as strong characteristics in myself.

    I made your pie crust tonight – I even used the food processor (what a pain) – and can’t wait to see if it made a difference in my crust. I filled it with pumpkin pie filling I made from scratch using sugar pumpkins. I am trying to get in the Thanksgiving mood. 🙂

    Thanks for all you do for the gluten free and general food communities!

    Okay, seriously teared up a bit seeing how beautiful those dinner rolls are! The video made it look so easy (thanks Shauna!)–cannot wait to try them, but definitely will not be waiting until Thanksgiving!

    These look great, but I do not have an iPad, nor do I know anyone with one. I tried the previous recipe you suggested and they all went into the garbage.

    Oh no! No more new recipes for those of us who don’t have iPads?! I’d buy your recipes if I could, but your cookbook isn’t out yet…So disappointed.

    Hi Shauna (and the Chef 🙂

    Thanks as always for sharing your wonderful GF baking wisdom over the holidays. Your work has meant so much to me as I have dealt with transitioning to gluten free over the past few years. I love your books, your website, and I’m repeatedly inspired by your generous spirit.

    I think it is great that you are embracing the App as a new way to share with your readers; I also feel the frustration of being Ipad-less in an increasingly mobile device-dependent world. I’m not too worried about finding a friend with an Ipad willing to share, but it might be worth considering another way for the Ipad deficient to pay directly for the recipes. I’m happy to donate to your video fund, but would also be willing to pay for a few of the details missing from the footage. I realize you’ve probably considered all of this, but I thought I’d throw in my two cents.

    With gratitude for all you’ve done and continue to do,

    I love the iPad, and this blog. I am rushing off to buy the app. For those of you without an iPad, I would like to share that it has become my most-used kitchen utensil. It is beyond the best thing to happen to my cooking in years, so I completely thank GFG&TC for making a great app for it. Thank you, Shauna and Danny. And I donated here also to support this work that you do.

    Do you have another option to get the recipe for these rolls, if you don’t have an ipad?
    They look too fabulous not to include them in the Thanksgiving meal…

      Shauna’s hands are tied (legally speaking) and can’t provide the recipes in other formats. . . but if you watch the video closely and compare it to the other dinner roll recipe, I think we can figure it out. . . I’m working on it today, with a few variations. . . feel free to shoot me an email if you want to see how I did. PolkaDotMommy (at)

    Having a tablet is very useful in the kitchen but mine is not an iPad. I understand that developing other apps is not a simple task. Perhaps if your iPad app does well you’ll consider other platforms, eventually. Anyhow, thanks for the other content you share!

    I recently found your site and I love, love it! My 6 yo daughter was just diagnosed with a wheat allergy. I am an avid baker so it has been beyond a challenge for me. But, your site gives me confidence! I haven’t made anything yet but have printed many, many things. I’ll also be trying to bake by weight now since reading your site. I see your video for the thanksgiving rolls but no recipe. I don’t have an ipad/iphone, etc so I can’t get it? We do have a nook but that’s about it. Is there somewhere I can get the recipe? I also am local, Puyallup to be exact. I grew up in Tacoma though and went to high school with a Paul Ahern-any relation to your hubby? Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    I’m another iPad-less faithful follower, but I DO have an iPhone…any chance the app will be available in that format? I use my iPhone to cook from all the time. It seems like it wouldn’t be as difficult to make it iPhone compatible as it would be to make it work for an Android or other OS. (but then again, I’ve never developed an app, so I could be totally off!)

    Love, love, love everything you do!!!

    Perhaps I am missing something obvious, but why is there a legal issue with (Shauna or commenters) posting the recipe? We do not have an i-anything, nor do we have the desire/finances to get more gadgets besides our computer (and Apple’s track record with labor issues isn’t exactly stellar either). If it was possible for someone to put this recipe on his/her own site, I’d be much obliged–I am craving these lovely rolls! My computer doesn’t do sound correctly, so I can’t even try the video method. I also worry that while the older recipes will be online, and revised as necessary, future new recipes will involve this app stuff?

    I don’t mean to sound like I don’t appreciate the time that goes in to everything this website has given me the last several years–recipe development, thoughts on ingredients, watching your family grow and thrive along with mine–I just am disappointed when I see yet another thing that I like, especially something that supports things homemade, slow, and with love and thought, becoming part of the high-speed, gadget-hungry, super-tech world. So here is my two cents. But I understand you have your reasons, and after all, it’s your website and your time, so of course the decision should be yours.

    I don’t have an ipad either. Isn’t there any other way?
    Could I make a donation using the donation button above and you could pdf the recipe to me?
    Any creative solutions that would keep you in business (I completely appreciate your need to put food on your own table and respect that) and keep the recipes flowing?
