Cookie recipes for holidays and other pleasantries


Recommended Posts

Merry Christmas all, I'm giving you two recipes, one for a dinner rolls, and the other takes the dinner roll dough and uses it to make cinnamon rolls.


Great Grandma's dinner rolls:
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup boiling water or scalded milk
2 eggs beaten
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold water
2 package yeast
1/2 cup warm water
7.5 cups flour

Mix shortening + boiling water, stir until shortening is melted.

Combine eggs, sugar, salt, and beat in cold water.

Mix yeast and warm water. Wait 10 minutes


Combine all 3 mixtures and add flour (make sure all are well mixed)

Cover and chill in fridge over night   
Bake at 350 f about 15 minutes


Cinnamon rolls:

Use dough from above
Preheat oven 375f     

Mix 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup softened butter, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon.
Roll out dough about 1/4 inch thick   

Spread half the cinnamon sugar butter mixture on top of the dough. Then roll up like a jelly roll. Cut crosswise into 1.5 inch wide sections.       


Cover the bottom of a baking pan with the rest of the sugar/butter, spread 1/2 cup of raisins and 2/3 cup chopped pecans.


Place the slices in the pan so they almost touch.


Cover with towel and let rise until they almost double.

Bake 375f for 25-30 minutes. 

Immediately after the rolls are done cooking flip over pan onto a wire rack, with wax paper underneath. Rolls should come loose easily. 


Let sit until cool enough to handle, then eat.
