I was thinking about my Grandmother today and her delicious baked goods,I wondered if anyone makes butter rolls? Everyone in the family LOVED them,sometimes everyone would be at her house and she hadn't made dessert(which was not very often) and someone would say"how about a butter roll? And she would get in the kitchen and whip up a butter roll.I saw this recipe a on southernplate.com. My Grandmother never wrote out her recipes,she never measured,but this is how she made hers.

How to Make Butter Roll


  1. Cut shortening into flour really well with a fork. Stir in milk.
    On a floured surface, dump out dough and press together with your hands to form a ball.
    Roll out into a rectangle (about 7×10 in size). Spread softened butter over dough and then sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon over top. Roll it up like a jelly roll and press it together lightly.
    Cut into nine slices about one inch thick each. Place into a lightly greased 8×8 baking dish.
    In medium sauce pot, combine all milk sauce ingredients. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to bubble lightly. Pour over rolls in pan.
    Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes, or until rolls are lightly browned on top.
    Allow to sit for a few minutes once it is done for the rolls to soak up more sauce. After you put each roll on a plate, spoon more sauce over it.
