The Parker House Roll?
Call this perennially pleasing puff of breadiness the ultimate doughy, chewy, pull-apart-able, slather-on-the-butter-able superstar of the holiday buffet.
These easily eatable icons don't solely star at special occasions, of course, but plenty of home cooks make a dozen, or six, using a host of recipes that put their own special spins on the timeless rounds of beautiful bread.

But the Parker House Roll wasn't only made for dunking in gravy or assisting a pop-up turkey sandwich: Sometimes it can appear in a scoop of ice cream.
And those ice cream scoops are now available at Salt & Straw scoop shops.
The artisanal makers of interesting ice creams have been creating quirky flavors for over a decade now, and the company's Thanksgiving-inspired line-up also includes sweet takes, savory flavors, salty odes, and, yes, the occasional cameo by something carb-y and delicious.
Which, in 2021, is the Parker House Rolls with Salted Buttercream ice cream.
That's one of the five festive flavors on the Salt & Strawn Friendsgiving roster, which is pairing the gratitude-filled holiday with the gooey goodness of a cold and creamy dessert.
The other flavors are just as notable, with a Carmelized Turkey and Cranberry Sauce making the list, a Candied Walnut Cheesecake ice cream, and the Sweet Potato Pie with Double Baked Almond Streusel.
As for the vegan choice? Look for the Pumpkin & Gingersnap Pie.
But you don't need to swing by your scoop shop for these flavors, not if you're spending Thanksgiving with family across the country: Nationwide shipping is an option, meaning you can treat relatives to this luscious, made-in-LA confection.
