Thursday

Throwback Thursday- Tradition

4.2.15- 
Throw back Thursday probably isn't a "thing" in the blogging world but I'm making it happen today.  Sharing with you something that is an Easter/Conference Weekend tradition in our home.  I've shared this with so many over the years & they all love it.  It's a family recipe & one we enjoy often. Hope you like it to.  
Thanks, {M}
  Still "BuZZed"  from a terrific Hive & wanted to hop on the blog to say THaNK You to everyone who came by, I really appreciate your support & friendship. 
----------------------------
I had the sweetest comment said to me on Thursday as I was checking out a customer at The Hive.  She said to me, " I think you should write a cookbook."  She kind of caught me off guard a bit with that statement. I said, "Oh, I don't know about that." & then she said, "Well I think you should."  How sweet is that!  Her comment made my day {got me thinking a bit too} & filled up my bucket for sure!  So kind of her.  Thanks, {T}! I love sharing things with you on this blog that I love to make. I'm glad my readers enjoy what I share. It makes me happy to hear from all of you too. 
---------------------------------
If I did ever write a cookbook this recipe would be one of the first that I would include- it's a family favorite & the perfect thing to make on a wintery, snowy day like the one we had today.  Winter is here, I think! 

-Just pulled this out of the oven, it smells heavenly!!-  
If you haven't tried this yet- you should!  The perfect thing to make & eat on a Sunday afternoon.
{Just a thought ;)} 



Sweet Petal Roll 

Scald:  1  1/2 C. milk 
Add to warmed milk:
        6 T. shortening 
        1 T. salt 
        4 T. sugar
Cool & add: 5 cups of Flour 
Dissolve 2 T. yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Let rest a few minutes & then add to dough mixture & knead for 5 minutes 
Let raise for 1 hour. 

After dough has risen melt 1 cube of butter & place into a shallow bowl.  In another shallow bowl combine 1 c. Sugar, 2 T. Cinnamon, 1/2 C. Brown Sugar. 

Rip off a ball of dough & roll into a worm shape, about 6- 8 inches long. Dip into butter & then into sugar mixture.  Put them round & round in a pizza pan with a side on it. {or you can divide the dough & make 2 -9 inch rounds}  DO NOT use a pan without a lip around it or you'll be cleaning your oven after. *if you have extra dough after making the petal rolls, just roll a piece of dough into a ball, toss in the butter & sugar & then place them in a muffin tin to bake while the rolls are still raising.  {I usually get about 5-6 cinnamon balls when I use the 9 inch cake rounds} 

Raise for 45 minutes, pre heat oven to 350. Bake for 20 min & then ice with a powdered sugar glaze {powdered sugar, milk & vanilla}


Enjoy!

Melissa, what time on Sunday morning do you start making this so that it is ready in time for Conference at 10:00 am?
