There are plenty of reasons to love the holidays… tons.
But the fact that mom makes these yeast rolls every holiday is at the top of the list.
Psst… Mom… ya know today is technically a holiday… just sayin’
Now to say my mom has been making these puppies as long as I can remember is a bit of an understatement. I give you EXHIBIT A.
No, that is not the original Bill of Rights stolen from Independence Hall… it is the original recipe card for this family favorite.
You start by dissolving 1 pkg of yeast in 1/4 cup warm water.
Then take 1/3 cup sugar and add 1/4 cup of oil in a large bowl.
Add 1 cup of milk after you scold it. Try not to hurt its feelings, but scold it just the same
Now add 1 t salt. Mix ‘er up and let cool until luke warm.
Now add in 1 1/2 cups sifted flour
Add in yeast and 1 beaten egg
Then blend in another 1-2 cups flour to form a soft dough.
Now place in a greased bowl turning once to coat the dough and set aside to let double (about 1 1/2 hrs)
(Photo missing due to multi-tasking)
Flatten dough with hands until about 3/4 inch thick and cut dough into rolls using a glass.
Place rolls in a pan and let double again. Mom used muffin and brownie pans to help the rolls keep their shape.
Now bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes
And top with butter.
Pass the rolls please!
