Butter Roll Recipe #6
From Anonymous

My family makes it (Butter Rolls) this way:

Biscuit dough:
4 handfuls self rising flour (White Lily) and 2 handfuls sugar
1 fistful of lard rubbed into flour
"enough" buttermilk to make a dough stiff enough to roll out.

Roll out about 1/4 inch thick in a big rectangle, spread with soft butter, and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Roll like a jelly roll and cut into slices (about an inch thick). Arrange the slices in a greased pan.

Custard: 
1 quart sweet milk
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter
4 eggs

Combine everything but eggs in a saucepan and slowly bring to a boil to melt the butter and dissolve the sugar. Beat eggs with a whisk and whisk in about half the hot milk mixture to temper the eggs. Stir egg mixture back into hot milk, add a spoon of vanilla and pour the custard over the rolls in the pan. Sprinkle a little cinnamon over all and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, till brown.
