This is my husband’s all time favorite side dish! Rolls are such an amazing addition to any dinner and these ones are everything you would expect and more, buttery, soft, and sweet! I learned about these “famous” rolls during my first Thanksgiving dinner with my in-laws. My husband really talked them up. I couldn’t imagine they would be any better then the delicious Costco rolls (no joke 2nd best to these) that my family gets every year. But I was blown away. These rolls are THE rolls. They take first place.
Four years ago my in laws invited my family to spend the holidays with them and since then we have spent every single one together. My family and my husband’s family are all under one roof for the holidays. Talk about being blessed.
Three years ago my mother in law suggested I make the rolls. Me?! The person who prefers to follow simple recipes and burns half of what she makes? I was wondering if she was losing her mind, but I also was up for the challenge, as I knew it was the way to my husband’s heart. Three years later, I am still making these rolls! Every year I ask my mother in law for the recipe and every year I forget how to make them! Enter this blog post. I will NEVER forget how to make these delicious amazing rolls.
Things that will always remind me of these famous rolls: My mother in laws giant green bowl with lid, trays and trays with towels draped over them and a sweet smelling kitchen <3
Disclosure: Last year I made these for Christmas with my toddler. He loved helping and rolling them. BUT he unfortunately decided to sneak a few handfuls of dough. Let’s just say he spent most of his 2nd christmas on the pot! Let your toddlers help, but maybe save the taste tests till after they bake.
