1 Cup milk, scalded 1/3 Cup shortening (part or all butter) 1/2 Cup sugar 1 1/2 tsp salt 2 cakes (2 Tbsp) of compressed yeast 1/4 Cup water, lukewarm ~5 Cups all-purpose flour, sifted 2 beaten eggs
- Combine scalded milk, shortening, sugar and salt. Cool to lukewarm.
- Soften yeast in lukewarm water. Stir and combine with cooled milk mixture
- Add about half the flour and the beaten eggs and beat well.
- Add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough, mix thoroughly.
- Knead about 10 minutes or until smooth and satiny.
- Place dough in a warm greased bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 2 hours or until double in bulk.
- If making dinner rolls, make rolls and let rise until double in bulk.
Rich Dinner Rolls dough 1/2 cube melted butter 1/2 cup brown sugar cream or milk
- After you have mixed all the above ingredients, roll out the dough using a rolling pin to about 1/4 inch thickness. I like to make it rectangular (longer than wide).
- Spread a generous amount of softened butter on the dough to the edges. Sprinkle with a layer of brown sugar ( I don't measure, just make sure it is to the edge of the dough)
- Sprinkle with cinnamon. Can add raisins and/or crushed walnuts if you want.
- Roll dough the long way. Cut in to 1 inch sections. Will make 12-16 rolls. Easiest way to cut 1 inch cinnamon rolls is with thread or unflavored dental floss.
- NOTE: The following mixture is being prepared in the bottom of the pan where you place the cinnamon rolls.
In a large baking pan, put melted 1/2 cube butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar and some cream or milk to make creamy.
- Stir the mixture. It should make a thick caramel.
- Place them and let rise to double their size.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until they are golden brown.
- Turn out upside down to platter. Enjoy!! YUMMY!!
