My new FAVORITE rolls!!!

Oatmeal Rolls
from the kitchen of Aimee Weeks

2 C quick cooking oatmeal
2 C boiling water
3/4 C butter
1 1/2 T. Yeast
2 Eggs
2 t. salt
1/8 c. sugar
4 1/2 c. flour

In large bowl, add oatmeal and pour the boiling water over the top. Stir slightly so all mixture is moist. Cut the butter into small pieces and place on top of oatmeal; set aside until butter is melted and mixture is cooled. Sprinkle yeast on top of oatmeal mixture. Add eggs, salt, sugar and flour. Mix on low speed for 8-10 minutes. Allow dough to double. Roll out on floured surface until 1/4 inch thick. Brush with 1/4 c. melted butter and cut into rounds. Fold each round in half, then take 2 rounds and fold them so the ends interlock. Place rolls in muffin tins and let rise until double. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Rolls should be light brown, do not over bake. ENJOY!!!

Aimee also makes the best homemade butter to serve with her famous oatmeal rolls...just makes them extra yummy!

Honey Butter
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. honey
1 t. vanilla

Raspberry Butter (great for Easter dinner)
1/2 c. salted butter at room temperature
1/4 c. + 1 T. honey
3 T. raspberry jam
1 t. vanilla

Spice Butter (incredible for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner)
1 c. salted butter at room temperature
2 T. honey
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ginger
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. all spice

For all the butter recipes: combine all ingredients and blend in kitchen aid or with hand mixer for 10-20 minutes on medium speed. ENJOY!!!

Oh my. Why do your sisters-in-law have to be such good cooks? I'm trying to loose weight over here!

I THINK I MIGHT be able to pull this one off, eh? No pans I don't own, or random ingredient that I can't pronounce. I might just try!

Jen- how could it not be delicious with all that butter. P.S. I assume that you mix the flavored butters for 20 seconds, not minutes, as you have in the directions. Love ya, babe. XOXOX
