Butter Roll Dessert Recipe #1

"My aunt Marylou use to make this dessert for us children back home in Courtland

She rolled out biscuit dough like she was going to make a pie shell; she cut the dough into wide strips and spread it with butter, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg (creamed together). She rolled the dough into a roll (she made several rolls, depending on how large her pan was)and placed them into a baking dish. She covered the dough rolls with milk, eggs, sugar and bake. This is all I can remember. It was a long time ago. I am 57 now, and that was when I was about 8 or 9.

I hope this information will be of some help."

Butter Roll Dessert Recipe #2 from Julia

"My grandmother and Aunt Ivy used to make this when I was little and it is wonderful! I have made it and although it was good somehow is was not the same if not served in a huge white metal pan covered with a clean dishcloth!

Dough, rolled out thin. Then pat butter and sprinkle with sugar. Roll up. Place in large pan and pour boiling water over it. Then you put more butter and vanilla in the water and bake in the oven! It is so good and very rich! This is an East Texas
tradition that is becoming a lost art. "

There were never any measurements for this recipe all done by taste and sight.

Butter Roll Dessert Recipe #4 from Rita

My mom can remember my grandmother making that. When I talked to my mom, I picked her brain about the Roll. She said that my grandmother did one that had cinnamon and sugar in it with a simple syrup on top. The way it was made was when the biscuit dough was made she rolled the dough out like a jelly roll but she didn't cut the dough . She put the roll into a baking pan and dried the roll out for a few minutes and then poured the syrup on top. then she baked it for about 30 minutes or until the roll was browned, but she also basted the roll during cooking. My grand mother used water, sugar, nutmeg and butter in the syrup and she cooked it for about 3 to 4 minutes before she poured it over the roll
