FR: I'll give you one (of them)

    So, Patricia has some dinner rolls in a bag. A friend comes along and asks her what's in the bag. She tells him to smell the bag and if he can tell her what's in it, she'll give him one.

    This is what I have so far, that I'm not sure about:

    […] je t'en donne un."

    I was more concerned about the last part, that means, "I'll give you one (of them)." but if there is anything else in there that needs adjusting, I'd appreciate any advice!

    You have understood correctly. If you'd like to learn more about the pronoun en in French, take a look here.

    If you want the sentence to be in the future as in English, you should say, Je t'en donnerai un.
