Most recipes I'm seeing say 190-200 F. What are your usual cues for telling if rolls are done? (I have a hunch you've baked a few!)

Actually, I ask this because I just made a batch of rolls that I put into the freezer before cooking. I'll be thawing overnight Wednesday and baking very early Thursday. The internal temperature when they go into the oven on Thursday may be lower than as if I had, e.g., refrigerated overnight and allowed to come to room temperature. Thus my usual visual cues may not be trustworthy. Many thanks for the temperature range!! ;o)

So instead par baking you froze the uncooked rolls. I am following this because I plan on making my rolls ahead of time and am torn between par baking or freezing and baking. I am confused as to how I will do this to achieve the best result.

Standard bread wants to reach an internal temperature of 185. A baguette wants to reach 210. What kind of flour did you use? If all bread flour, then I'd say treat them like bread and go for 185. If you used a portion of all-purpose flour, then you can go lower, say 175.

Starches gelatinize anywhere from 55C to 85C depending on the plant they are derived from, the amount of salt, sugar, etc added and the process used in mixing. If you shoot for 85 you will always be safe. But make sure they proof fully beforehand.
