Yeast Rolls & Cinnamon Rolls

I remember making these with my mom. It is messy but fun. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Yeast Rolls

1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup fat or oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup scalded milk
1/2 cup cool milk
1 cake of yeast (3/5 oz. or 2 Tbs dry)
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1/2 tsp sugar
1 beaten egg
3 1/2 cups flour (all purpose is fine)

1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup fat or oil
1 tsp. salt

then add 1/2 cup scalded milk, make sure sugar is dissolved then add 1/2 cup cool milk, set aside to cool completely. Soften 1 cake yeast {3/5 oz.} or 2 Tbs. dry yeast in 1/4 cup lukewarm water {85 degrees} with 1/2 tsp sugar. Set aside to proof for at least 10 min. When sugar & milk mixture is cool add l beaten egg then add proofed yeast mixture. To this mixture add a little at a time about 3 1/2 cups flour. Mix well then turn dough onto floured board, knead quickly until smooth and elastic. Form into ball. Place in well greased bowl, cover and let rise till double in size about one hour. Remove from bowl and knead again. Roll out 1/2 inch thick, cut in circles then fold off center or form balls or whatever shape rolls you want to make. Place in greased pan, cover, let rise till double in size, about one hour. Place in pre-heated 350 degree oven until golden brown. Remove from oven, brush tops with melted butter.

Take your yeast dough recipe and wrap hotdogs with the dough and back as you would back the rolls, to a golden brown, and then cut open to fill with toppings! Yummy!
