Tempting Tuesdays ~ Heavenly Rolls

With the holidays right around the corner, I've been thinking about all those yummy favorites that have become a staple for those meals each year. The turkey, ham, or delicious roast is usually the main attraction, but what about our favorite side dishes? Today, I'm going to share with you a recipe from Lil' Luna. Her Heavenly Rolls are definitely something that should be on every holiday table.


1 tbsp yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 tsp sugar
1 cup warm milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup flour
2 eggs
3 cups flour
melted butter

Mix 1 TB yeast with 1/4 cup warm water and 1/2 tsp. sugar. Let stand until bubbly.

In a large bowl mix 1 cup warm milk, 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp. salt with a wooden spoon.

Add 1 cups of flour to mixture, and mix well. Add 2 eggs and beat until smooth (mix vigorously be hand). Add yeast mixture and mix vigorously until smooth.

Add 3 cups of flour to the yeast mixture, stirring after each cup is added. The dough should be very sticky.

Pour the dough in a large bowl and cover with a warm, damp tea towel or plastic wrap. Put bowl in a warm place to rise for a few hours until the dough has doubled in size.

Once the dough has doubled in size punch down and divide in half.

Roll dough onto a floured surface making a circle about 12 inches round. Dough should be about 3/8" thick.

Brush dough with melted butter. Cut with a pizza cutter 12 to 16 pizza-like slices from each of your circles. Roll each slice from the rounded edge to the point like a crescent roll. 

Place in a greased 11 x 16 metal pan and do 3 across and 8 to 10 rows down. Cover again 
with your tea towel or plastic wrap and let rise for a few more hours until doubled in size.

Bake at 375 degrees until lightly browned, about 15-20 minutes. Brush with melted butter while warm and enjoy.

What are some of your favorite holiday side dishes?
