After my last post about baking, I thought it would be fun to let you in on some of the recipes our family enjoys using. So, I am introducing something new: I came up with the name Tori's Tasty Tuesdays (clever, right?) and will be posting a new recipe every Tuesday.
The recipes will range from main courses to side dishes to desserts - if you enjoy cooking, this is something you will not want to miss! Due to schedule conflicts, though, I may not be able to get a new one posted every Tuesday. :) Now, to be perfectly honest, I have to confess that I am not the cook in the family - Deanna is. She loves to cook, so most of these recipes come from her recipe box and she's the one who usually makes them! :)
This week's dish are delicious cinnamon rolls that Deanna made last week:
1 package of yeast
1 cup warm water
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 c. melted shortening
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. sugar
4 cups flour
1 pkg yeast dissolved in 1 cup warm water. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar and let stand 10 minutes. Add: 1/2 c. melted shortening and 3/4 tsp. salt. Beat 3 eggs lightly and add 1/2 c. sugar and beat again. Add to above mixture. Beat in 4 cups flour. Let stand until doubled.
Roll dough up and cut in 1 inch pieces. Let rise until light. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Spread powder sugar glaze when warm (powder sugar and milk)
The finished product!
