The Speed Thaw Method can be used to thaw dough faster. This method should be used with caution as the dough can easily over rise if not monitored closely
Spray pan with cooking spray. Place frozen dough in pan, and cover with sprayed plastic wrap to keep it from sticking to the rolls while rising. Preheat oven to 200°F. Then turn the oven off.
Boil 2 quarts water and put in a pan on the lowest rack. Put rolls in the oven and let thaw and rise until double in size. Remove the pan of water. Carefully remove the wrap.
The speed method still takes some time 1-2 hours depending on which product. It is also common for some discoloration to occur when using the speed method. We recommend only using this method when you are in a major time crunch. The other two methods are much more likely to provide you with a successful, delicious baked product.
For the best baking success, use the Rhodes Refrigerator Thaw Method to let your dough thaw and start to rise. You can use this method for all Thaw Rise & Bake products.
