Really Quick and Yummy Rolls

I was shocked to find a quick roll recipe that was good. These are the best rolls I have ever made while not being directly supervised by my mother-in-law. I got this recipe from: You can click the link and get it from there, or else I've pasted it below, in case it ever disappears from the other site.


  • 2(1/4 ounce) packages yeast
  • 12-4 12cups white bread flour
  • 3tablespoons sugar
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • 1cup milk
  • 12cup boiling water
  • 14cup butter, room temperature

    1. In a small bowl, mix milk with water. Add sugar, yeast, and butter. Stir until yeast is dissolved and set aside for 10 minutes or until yeast has foamed up a bit.
    2. In a large bowl, mix flour and salt. Use the lower amount of flour to start with and add more only if the dough is really too sticky.
    3. Add yeast mixture to flour and mix.
    4. Knead until smooth and elastic. (I use a hand mixer with a kneading attachment.).
    5. Place in greased bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes.
    6. Oil your hands and shape the dough into rolls and place in a well-greased pan. I use 2 round non-stick cake pans.
    7. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise another 15 minutes.
    8. Bake at 400 for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
    9. Let these cool down before you remove them from the pan or they will likely tear.

Russian Tea

I need to get in the holiday spirit soon, so I think it is time to add some more family holiday recipes here. My mom just asked whether we want her to send us some of that Tang drink that is Merle's recipe. I had forgotten to make that the last few years! I searched my email and found this recipe, which I had given to her and my sister upon request.

2c. Tang
3 oz. Countrytime Lemonade (I think it is about half of the amount of Tang)
1 1/3c. sugar
1 tsp Cinnemon
1/2 tsp. cloves
mix in 2q. jar
to serve: add 2-3 tsp. to hot water
