The holidays are right around the corner, and I feel the need for things to s.l.o.w. way down as opposed to accepting the rush and all the bustle that undoubtedly comes along with this time of year.
One of my favorite things to do is to bake bread. There is just something about the smell that greets those who stop by for a cup of tea or for those who join us for dinner. When I take bread out of the oven, it is almost like our home beckons for guests to come in, sit, get cozy and stay for awhile!!
Thank you, twinsie for making these for me...they are my favorite!!
Auntie Laura’s Yam Rolls
½ cup milk
¼ cup butter
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. nutmeg...freshly grated
¼ tsp. cinnamon
¼ cup cool water
1 tbsp. yeast
¾ cup mashed yams
3 ½ cups flour
Heat butter in milk until butter is “melty”
Add the rest of the ingredients into the milk in a stand mixer bowl. Mix.
Form into rolls with oiled hands. Let rise until rolls are fluffy.
Bake at 375* for about 23 minutes or until rolls are golden.
This makes one pan of about 9 rolls.
Variation: Use this dough for cinnamon rolls. Simply roll out into a rectangle. Spread dough with softened butter and add lots of cinnamon sugar. Roll up like a snake and cut into pinwheels. Bake in greased pan and bake for about 25 minutes. Frost with cream cheese buttercream and ENJOY!!
