Fabulous Dinner Rolls

Are you looking for an out-of-this-world roll recipe to add to your Thanksgiving menu?  Look no further.

This yeast roll recipe comes courtesy of Meg from Little Bit of Life blog.  She got it from her great-grandmother Lola. 

And I ask you, does anyone make rolls better than a great grandma?

I think not.

I've gotta tell you, I am a staunch believer in my own garlic cheese rolls, a family favorite for a number of years.  Every roll I bake is measured against the venerable GCR.  Very few make the cut.

These?  Well just look at them.  I think, rather than Yeast Rolls, they should be renamed Mile High Rolls.  One roll stretches from chin to eyebrow.  Eating one is like eating buttery air.

This year, for Thanksgiving?  I will make two kinds of rolls.  My garlic cheese rolls (because we want no serious pouty-faces around here).  And these.

They are that good.

That is so nice using Lola's roll recipe. I know Meg will be so happy that you featured them here. I know I am really proud that you did, so thank you. Both ladies are wonderful cooks. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving too,The benefits of having a great daughter-in-love who cooks. :)

Farm Girl, so Meg is your daughter-in-law? How cool! I didn't know! And you know Lola, too? I love it so much when we can all share recipes. I'm eager to try more of Meg's since this one is so wonderful :)

I may just give these a shot, Lynn, even though I have had very little luck at making yeast rolls before. But hope springs eternal! :)

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I can't believe how high those rolls are. That's fantastic. I'm always on the lookout for a good roll recipe. I usually measure them up again the Tyler Florence Parker House Rolls recipe I always use. But, these might give them some stiff competition. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments.

Trying these this week. My T-giving rolls burned (forgot to adjust for altitude change).

Eek.
