Bread Machine Boston Parker House Rolls

These gorgeous, light, buttery rolls were originally served at Boston’s historic and famous Parker House Hotel, the very same hotel that created the Boston Cream Pie and served these delicious creations to Oliver Wendell Holmes, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Ralph Waldo Emerson.
The Omni Parker House is an incredible hotel and if you’re ever in Boston overnight, I highly recommend staying there.  It’s charming and beautiful.  The rooms are elegant, classic, simple and reminiscent of an old turn of the century hotel.  And do make sure you have room service bring you some Parker House rolls and pie!
