[food] Knot rolls, per my mother's family

Single recipe (plus/minus 2 doz rolls). These are stupidly tasty, as well as being rather simple, as yeast breads go.


  • Combine 1/2 cup boiling water with 1/2 cup Pet (condensed) milk; set aside

  • Combine 2 pks or cakes of yeast with 1/4 cup wrist warm water, dash of sugar, set aside to proof

  • Cream 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter, lightly salt

  • Add 2 eggs and beat well

  • Add water/Pet milk and stir well

  • Add flour a cup at a time (over 3 cups) til ready to knead

  • Turn out on floured counter top and knead well

  • Leave in covered bowl, let rise til doubled

  • Beat down, make into rolls by taking chunks slightly larger than golf balls, twirling them into little logs, and tying the logs into simple knots

  • Let rise again

  • 10-12 min in 325 oven on a baking sheet with baking parchment, just until they turn golden

  • Butter tops of hot rolls, set on wire rack to cool
