Gramma Quetta’s Cinnamon Rolls
Hot, Sugary & Delicious

by Karen Ekstrom

A family that bakes together, stays together!

Quetta started a family tradition. Making cinnamon rolls to be enjoyed on Christmas morning. She gathered all the kids and everyone helped! Now, even though she’s gone, that tradition continues…

(But don’t wait for the holidays. This recipe is so easy and delicious, you will want to make it all the time!)

Ingredients:

3/4 cup Crisco
1 cup boiling water or scalded milk (I use boiling water)

2 eggs beaten
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt

1 cup of water

2 cakes (packets) yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water

7 1/2 cups shifted flour

Directions:

The Day Before:

1) Combine Crisco and boiling water, stir until Crisco is melted.

2) Combine eggs, sugar and salt and beat in cold water.

3) Soften yeast in lukewarm water.

Combine these three. Mix. Shift flour. Add to mixture. Cover and chill overnight.

Next Morning:

Break off about 5 – 6 hunks. Sprinkle flour on wax paper. Roll out thin and flat.

Press sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lots of little pieces of butter on it. (Use as much as you like. The more you use, the more sugary, cinnamon-y, it is!)

Roll up. Cut thick or thin, however you like them. Put in a buttered pan.

Cook at 350 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes.

While baking, add Powdered sugar with small amount of vanilla or orange juice or anything.  Mix. (Get all the lumps out.) Pour on hot rolls.

Dig in!
