Thanksgiving Dinner Rolls using REAL Ingredients

Happy Thanksgiving!  I'm in the kitchen today and taking a bit of MUCH NEEDED time off.  I am so thankful for my Florida friends and "Family" of Patients.

We're celebrating our first Thanksgiving being a Married couple...Woohoo!!!
I am forever grateful to my friends and family in California.  
I love you all and miss you LOTS!

If you want dinner rolls without the nasty chemicals and preservatives, this is the recipe for you!
Mary's Perfect Dinner Rolls
2 1/2 cups warm organic milk (for this I use whole milk)
4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1/2 cup organic sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup organic butter, softened
2 teaspoons salt
7 cups unbleached organic flour, or as needed
1/2 cup butter, melted (I omit)
Dough rising!
I used butter from a local cheese and butter maker.  They are a small local business and their products are AMAZING!
Pour milk into a large mixing bowl, and sprinkle yeast over the surface. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. Beat in the sugar, eggs, 1/2 cup butter, and salt; blend thoroughly.
Gradually stir in the flour to make a soft dough. Cover bowl, and set in a warm place until dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.
Punch down the dough, cover the bowl, and allow to rise again. Repeat this step two more times.
Break off 2 to 3 inch size pieces of dough, roll lightly into round shape, and place in prepared baking dish, edges touching. Repeat to make 36 dough balls. Cover and let rise until doubled in size.
Large rolls and Small rolls!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish
Bake rolls in preheated oven until tops turn golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. When rolls are finished baking, drizzle melted butter over the top, and serve warm.

  1. Lol, we did the same thing, well my husband did. It was different, and we will have to work on it, not at all what the kids are used to.

  2. Those turned out terrific! I can almost taste them all the way from here.

  3. Mmm... These look wonderful! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
