i must share the love.

my mother-in-law, julie, makes THE BEST rolls.  i'm serious.  i want to eat like 800 of them at a time. she sent me the recipe, and i thought i'd share with all of you.  you never can have too many roll recipes, but i guarantee once you taste these, you'll never use another one again.
1 cup milk, scalded
2 tbsp. butter or margarine
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp salt
1 pkg. yeast
3 1/4 cup flour
scald milk, then add butter, sugar, and salt.  stir to dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup lukewarm water.  add to milk mixture.  add flour a little at a time.  keep moist and springy.  let rise until double, about 1 hour.  roll out on floured board to 1 inch thick.  use a round cutter to cut individual rolls. melt some butter and dip each round-cut dough into it, folding it immediately, and delicately of course, in half.  bake 450 for 9 min.  enjoy.

Jenna - Hi, I dont know you. I knew jake back in the good ol' days. I came across your blog by accident as I blog hopped from one friends blog to another, and I just wanted to tell you that you seem like a BEAUTIFUL person. Both inside and out. Every picture of you is beautiful, and I love your perspective on things. Looks like Jake landed a good one. Just wanted you to know that a stranger thinks your wonderful! (and I hope this comes across as a happy thought - not creepy. lol)

Would that be a package of dry yeast, or the moist kind? Thanks!

Thanks so much pretty!

I just tried these, and they are GINORMOUS! Did you mean to say roll them out to 1/2 inch? Or is it really 1 inch?
Also, do you bake them just on a cookie sheet?
