Roll recipes, bun recipes and biscuit recipes can be made by adding ingredients and flavoring to basic bread recipes.

Parker House Rolls

Parker House rolls may be used in almost any kind of meal and are best with a meal that includes gravy or meat.

Parker House Rolls

(3 Dozen Rolls)

Ingredients

  • 1 cake compressed yeast
  • 1 pint lukewarm milk
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 pint white flour
  • 1 cup white flour, additional for kneading

Directions

  1. Dissolve yeast in some of the lukewarm milk. Pour the remainder of the warm milk over the butter, sugar, salt and dissolved yeast, all of which should first be put in a mixing bowl.
  2. Stir in half of the flour, and beat until smooth. Cover and let rise until light.
  3. Add the remainder of the flour, and knead until the dough is smooth and does not stick to the board. Place the dough in a greased bowl, and let it rise again until it doubles in bulk.
  4. Roll the dough on a molding board until it is about 1/4-inch thick. Then cut the rolled dough with a round cutter, brush each piece with soft butter, mark the center with the dull edge of a kitchen knife and fold it over.
  5. Place the pieces of dough in shallow pans, about 1 inch apart, and let them rise until they are light. Bake 15 minutes in a 350-degree oven.

Whole-Wheat Rolls

Rolls made of whole-wheat flour are less common and a tasty way to add variety to a meal.

Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon rolls can be made using the preceding coffee-cake recipe. However, instead of rolling the dough 1/2-inch thick, roll it 1/4-inch thick and brush it with melted butter. Then sprinkle it with 1 tablespoonful of cinnamon, 1/2 cup of light-brown sugar and 1/2 cup of chopped raisins.

Next, roll this as a jelly roll and cut the roll into 1/2-inch slices. Place these slices close together in a shallow pan and let them rise until they are light. Bake 15 minutes in a 350-degree oven.
