These rolls though.
I am a lover of all things carbohydrates.
But THESE rolls in particular. They make my world go ’round.
- 2 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons yeast
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons shortening
- 2 teaspoons salt
- Combine yeast and water. Let sit until foamy.
- Scald milk on the stovetop. In a large bowl combine sugar, shortening and salt and pour hot milk over top.
- When mixture is luke-warm, mix with 1 cup flour. Stir in yeast mixture. Add 5-6 cups flour and 2 eggs until smooth.
- Let rise for 1 hour. Punch and let rise another 45 minutes.
- Roll out your dough in a circle 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Spread with softened butter. Cut your dough into 12 wedges. Roll them up starting from the wide part. Place rolls with point under on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise for 15 minutes.
- Bake at 425° for 7-8 minutes or until golden brown.
- Brush tops with melted butter when they come out.
These rolls are so exceptional, but nobody can make them quite like Famous Julie can.
She must know the exact right amount of love to put in or something.
Woah… wait. Where did that roll go?
I was just making sure they weren’t poisonous.
