No home organization web site can be complete without a few recipes to share.   For October, November, I'm listing four White Roll Recipes from my grandmother, friends and my own.  Hope you find one just right for your Thanksgiving table.

Light and Fluffy Rolls

Dissolve 1 T dry yeast and 1 cup sugar in 2 1/4 cups warm water

Add:  1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 cup melted butter and 6 beaten eggs.  Mix.

Stir in:  7 cups of flour (2 cups may be whole wheat flour).  Knead.  Add up to an additional 2 cups of flour (9 total cups of flour) until you have a very soft dough.

Divide into quarters.  Roll each quarter into a 12" x 16" rectangle.  Brush with butter.  Cut into 16 triangles for crescent rolls.  Roll each triangle from edge to point to make a crescent shape.  Place on well buttered pan.  Cover and let rise about 2 hours.  Bake at 350 degrees F, 8-10 minutes.  (Shared by Leann)

Homemade Rolls

1 3/4 cups warm water                                    3 Tablespoons dry yeast                    1/2 cup sugar

Mix the three ingredients together and let stand for 15 minutes.

1/2 cup oil                                                            1 teaspoon salt                                2 eggs

Add water, yeast and sugar mixture to oil, salt and eggs.  Mix.  A little at a time, add

5 cups of white flour

Knead until you have a smooth dough.  Let dough rise in warm, covered place for 2 hours.  Roll out for dinner rolls in cloverleaf or folded over circles.  Place on greased pan.  Bake at 400 degrees F, for 10 minutes.  (Shared by Sharon)

60 Minute Rolls

Make in a mixer or food processor with a dough hook.

5 cups white flour                                    3 Tablespoons sugar                        2 Tablespoons dry yeast

1 teaspoon salt

Combine 3 1/2 cups of the flour with all the sugar, yeast and salt.  Mix 1 minute in a mixer.  

1 cup milk                                                1/2 cup water                                    1/4 cup margarine (1/2 stick)

Combine milk, water and margarine in saucepan or in microwave and heat until very warm--the margarine should be soft but not melted.  Do not let this get too hot or it will kill the yeast when you mix the two combinations.  Gradually add the warm liquid to the flour mixture.  Add remaining (1 1/2 cups) flour 1/2 cup at a time.  Mix and knead for 10 minutes.  Place in greased bowl.  Cover.  Let rise 15 minutes.  Turn onto floured board.  Shape.  Cover.  Let rise 15 minutes.  Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes.

KayLee's Thanksgiving Rolls

2 T dry yeast                                            1 Tablespoon sugar                           1/2 cup warm water

Mix yeast, sugar and warm water in a small bowl.  Let stand for 10 minutes.

1 cup warm water                     1/2 cup powdered milk (find a good quality milk for better taste)

1/3 cup oil                               1/3 cup sugar                                    2 beaten eggs

2 teaspoons salt                                        4 cups white flour

In large mixing bowl mix water, milk, oil, sugar, eggs and salt.  Add yeast mixture.  Add 2 cups of flour.  Beat until well blended.  Add remaining flour a little at a time.  Cover and let rise for 2 hours.  Dough will be very soft, like a muffin dough.  Roll out on a well floured surface mixing in flour until dough is workable.  Cut into 2 inch circles.  Fold circle in half and place in a lightly greased 9" x 13" cake pan  Space rolls 3 across--it's okay if they touch.   When you have the pan filled with rolls, brush them with  1/2 stick melted butter.  Cover.  Let rise 1 hour.  Bake at 425 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.
