Whenever my family celebrates a holiday we love to eat some of our favorite foods.  One food that we always want to have is Grandma June’s Rolls.  They take a little bit of time, but my kids always want to help me roll them out so it’s a fun way to spend the day with them.  This recipe comes from my sister in-law’s mother who is known as Grandma June to a lot of people.  Here it is:

1. Put 1 heaping Tablespoon of Yeast into 1 cup warm water and add 1 teaspoon of Sugar.  Stir and let sit.

2. Warm 2 cups of milk or (approximately 1 cup powdered milk mixed with 2 cups water) on the stove.  Do not boil, just warm.

3. Cream together in a large mixing bowl:  ½ cup shortening or (½ cup shortening powder and 1/3 cup water)*

¾ cup sugar

 ½ teaspoon salt

 2 eggs or (5 T. powdered eggs and 5 T. water)

* If using shortening powder you may have to add a little vegetable oil.

4. Add yeast to mixture then add milk.

5. Add 3 cups flour and beat for 3 minutes.  Add 3 to 4 more cups of flour so the dough is easy to handle.   Let it raise until double.

6. Punch down and divide into 3 equal portions.  Roll out one portion into a circle. Melt ½ cup butter and pour 1/3 of the melted butter onto the circle.  Cut each circle into 12 -15 triangles then roll them up into a crescent shape.  Roll out the other two portions.

7. Put the crescents onto a greased pan and let raise until double in size. 

8. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes so they are golden brown.  

I hope you love these as much as my family  does!
