Vanilla Honey Butter

I found this recipe on the wooden spoon blog and it is so good and it will go great with the yeast rolls for your Thanksgiving dinner .
Vanilla Honey Butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sifted confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients using an electric mixer until creamy and smoother on muffins, bagels, toast, or just eat with a spoon (the most shameful, and my favorite, way to sample).

yeast rolls

Here is my favorate recipe for rolls. I make it every year for thanksgiving
·         2 packages active dry yeast
·         2 cups milk, scalded, cooled to lukewarm, divided
·         1/4 cup granulated sugar
·         2 teaspoons salt
·         2 eggs, beaten
·         1/4 cup vegetable shortening or margarine
·         5 cups all-purpose flour
·         Melted butter
Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup milk. Stir in remaining milk, the sugar, salt, eggs, shortening and 5 cups flour. Beat until smooth, adding more flour as needed to make the dough easy to handle.
Turn dough onto lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl and turn greased side up. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled.
Shape into rolls. Dip in melted butter. Place in greased muffin cups or 3 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Let rise again, then bake at 325 degrees F for 20-30 minutes. Brush again with melted butter.
