so. for starters. go ahead and put your yeast & warm water in a bowl bc it needs to sit for about 10 minutes so the bubbles start showing.
1 1/2 tsp of yeast
1/2 cup warm water.
In a large bowl, mix-
1/2 cup scalded milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter or shortening
1 tsp salt
mix that all up and then add
2 cups ap flour mix until smooth
& then add yeast mixture.
add about 1 1/2 cups more of ap flour until dough is easy to handle.
pour dough onto floured surface & knead for about 10 minutes.
place into a greased bowl for about 1 1/2 hours until doubled in size.
when its doubled in size roll out- spread melted butter all over and then add filling.
filling: 1/2 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 tb ground cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped pecans or almonds
roll it up a little tight. cut into desired size and put into a pan.
i always keep a little of the filling for the bottom of the pan.
let it sit for about 45 minutes and they will rise a little more & then bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
now for the glaze. my favorite part.
4 tb butter
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3-6 tb hot water
stir it up until smooth & pour over your yummy rolls.
