This month's theme for "Flavor of the Month" (okay last month theme really..) was "Traditions". I was all ready and very excited for this theme, and my computer was not.
Windows Vista is not my friend, and never was, really.
Now that I am back up and running, here is my contribution, a day late. :)
It is only the best roll recipe EVER!! It has become a tradition of sorts.. if it weren't already, I would certainly make them one.
Over Night Rolls
Heat, then cool 1 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of butter or margarine. In a separate, small bowl (I use my Pyrex measuring cup) mix 1 tablespoon of yeast and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Moisten with a little warm water (like 1/4 cup) to activate the yeast.
In a large bowl, beat 3 eggs, then add 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon of salt. Add the mil mixture, yeast, and 4 cups of flour. Stir well.
No need to knead.
Cover and let rise overnight.
Next morning, divide the dough. Roll into two circles on a floured board and cut the circles into 16 triangles (much like a pizza). Brush with melted butter or margarine and roll into a crescent shape.
Let rise 4-5 hours and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
It might seem like quite a bit of time to some, but well worth it!
I have memories of the smell of this dough filling the house on Sundays, tantalizing my taste buds during church.. I am so glad my kiddos enjoy them just as much now as I do.
