My Favorite Rolls

4 cups warm water

2 T yeast
1 1/3 cup dry instant milk
2 cubes butter
1 cup sugar        
1 cup potato flakes
4 eggs
1 T salt
10 cups flour

Soften yeast in warm water; add remaining ingredients and let rise 1 hour.   Knead.  Divide into six parts; roll out into a circle.  Spread with butter.  Cut into 12 triangles and roll up starting at the “fat” end.  Let rise 1 hour.  Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. 

Can sprinkle grated orange rind and sugar over butter before rolling for orange rolls.  I use 3/4 cup and the rind from 2 oranges. Delicious!  Enjoy!

OR- do this for cinnamon rolls:

  • 1/2 cup butter almost melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 6 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/3 cup butter (softened)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple extract (or vanilla)
