For Jo:
I've been promising Bryan's (very young;) Aunt, JoLynn, the recipe for my Mother's rolls. (pictured above in the background) And I always forget. But here it is now Jo, all because you joined Facebook! :) I only hope my Mom and Sisters will forgive me for sharing the secret ;) My Mom got this from someone else, so it's not really ours anyways!

My Family's Roll Recipe
In a medium/small bowl combine 2 Tbsp. yeast and 1 Tbsp. Sugar into 1/2 cup warm water. Set in a warm place. The yeast needs time to rise and become active. (maybe 10-15 mins.)
In a large bowl combine:
1 Cup butter (melted)
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Boiling Water

Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the ingredients from the first bowl (yeast, etc) to this mixture.

Add: 4 eggs, beaten
1 cup cold water
2 tsp. salt
7 1/2 cups Flour
in the order they are listed and mix with a spoon.

Cover and refrigerate overnight. About 2 to 3 hours before baking remove from fridge and form rolls. For crescent rolls, divide dough into fourths and roll each part out into circle. Spread melted or softened butter all over the top. Cut the circle into wedges with a pizza cutter and roll up each piece, beginning at the wide end of triangle. Place the rolls on a baking sheet with about an inch of space on all sides. Cover the rolls with clean dish towel (or something similar) and let them rise for about 3 hours. Bake at 425 for 8 to 12 minutes. Altitude and humidity seem to affect these a lot, so check them often to see how long it takes where you live!
These are amazing all by themselves, or you could serve them with jam and butter on the side. 



Yum, yum, yum! Thanks for the recipe...
