These are my Grandma Rita's Butter Rolls.
Here is the link for the recipe:
This is my second successful attempt using my Grandma's recipe.
Baking Nana and many other expert bakers helped with my first success. Here is what the roll looked like:
My Grandma made the rolls and baked them in a cake pan. I carefully followed the directions Baker Nana wrote up until it was time to form the rolls. After letting the rolls rise for 30 minutes, I divided the dough into 2 balls.
I then took one ball of dough and cut it into 3 sections.
Then, I cut the dough into 12 pieces.
Next, I rolled the pieces into 12 rolls. I placed them in a greased cake pan. I repeated the procedure to make 2 pans of 12 in each pan.
I covered the rolls with a cotton towel and placed them in my double oven using the bread proofing option. Baker Nana suggested using the microwave. Here is what they looked like after a 30 minute rise:
I brushed butter on the rolls and baked the rolls for 15 minutes.
Pull Apart Rolls Like My Grandma's!!!!
The dough can be shaped into 18 large dinner rolls or 24 medium sized dinner rolls. My family likes the rolls baked as dinner rolls. After the first rise, punch down the dough and then divide dough in half. Next, divide the
dough into thirds. Finally, divide dough into 9 pieces. Repeat procedure again with remaining dough. When shaping rolls, roll each into a ball by cupping your hand and tucking in your thumb. Place the rolls on a 13x18x1 inch cookie sheet and bake.
Since I live in high altitude, I have to make some adjustments for baking. I bake the 18 large rolls at 375 for 18-20 minutes or until browned.
Needless to say, I ate too many!!!! I am not ashamed to say that I cried tears of joy. So Silly! If I make them again in a cakepan, I will try using a 9 inch pan to give the rolls more room. When Thanksgiving rolls around
I think I will be ready to serve these rolls to my extended family of thirty people.
I still can't thank Baking Nana for all she did to help me. There were so many expert bakers who also gave me advice. If you missed the blogs here they are again.
