Aunt Reet's Rolls
These rolls are what
we use every year. A little history... My aunt made these every year for
Thanksgiving and we all looked forward to them. She's since passed away and we
have scattered as we've grown up. But I know that most of us still have Aunt
Reet's roll recipe and use it every year. It's now become 'tradition'. It's
just not Thanksgiving without these rolls! Aunt Reet always said that the
secret is to freeze them first and then reheat them. That is especially helpful
on 'Turkey day' when every cooking surface is taken up. She shaped them into
Parkerhouse rolls with a bit of butter inside the fold as do I, but you can make
any shape roll you want. Here's the recipe:
3 pkg yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup warm
water (100-110 degrees F)
8 cup flour
Scald 1 1/2 c. milk. Melt one stick of butter and 1/2 c. sugar in
the milk and let it cool.
Mix 3 pkg. yeast, 1 Tablespoon sugar and 1/2 c. warm water and let
stand 10 minutes.
Mix the two mixtures together with 2 eggs, mixing thoroughly. Add
7-8 c. flour. Knead and let rise until double.
Make into rolls and let rise.
Bake at 350 F until brown*. Rub butter on top and freeze. Reheat
at 425 F in foil until warm.
*Editor's note: about 20 minutes
