For Hot Cross Buns Add either candied fruit (like fruitcake fruit) or raisins ( regular or golden)  to the dough along with 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  Cinnamon can be added to dry ingredients in food processor.  Raisins and/or fruit should be added when you knead the dough.  Cut the dough after 1st rising into 12-14 pieces ( depending on how large you want the rolls)  Form them into smooth top rolls ( like pan rolls) and place in greased 9x13 pan or rimmed cookie sheet. Leave 1-2" apart depending on size.  Cover and let rise until double in bulk.  Brush with egg wash ( see cinnamon roll recipe) and bake in 375 degree oven for 15-20 approx  min. Rolls should be golden brown and show color on sides.  Cool a little then pipe crosses on each roll with powdered sugar glaze.  ( use same glaze a cinnamon rolls, but add extra powdered sugar to make it stiffer and able to hold shape and not run all over.

Great idea Nikki.  The recipe I have been using for years for lasagna makes enough to feed a small army!  And even with "plan-overs" we would have to eat it every day LOL. Congrats to Marie and her husband on all their years of wedded bliss. Will try to find some of the recipes I have for Easter, just not quite ready for that yet.

Thank you H.M. for your wishes.

I just want to say THANK YOU to all of you who wished my husband and I a Happy Anniversary.  I tried to go through the messages and thank everyone; but I may have missed someone and I want you to know that it was not intentional. 

Thank you to all of you wonderful people!

I finally figured out how to print a recipe that an individual posted.  I tried for the longest time and always got all the posts from that particular forum.  I guess I am just slow!!

If anyone needs help in printing just the recipe from a single post, let me know and I will walk you through it!

Good Luck Susan.  The real trick to successful yeast baking is temperature.  Be sure the water you dissolve the yeast in is about body temp......Years ago we used to test a baby's bottle temp, by testing a few drops on the inside of your arm...use the same test for yeast.  Also be sure you find a warm place to let your dough rise.....but not too hot.  It is sort of a balancing act.  But don't get discouraged, YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!

Susan - I'm watching you too.
I've never used yeast successfully one time in my life.  I tried hard for a few, very few, years and just gave up.
Now I try to avoid the aisle in the grocery store where that stuff is sold.

Top of the fridge is one of the best places to let dough rise. Usually the top is slightly warm. Just the right temp.  And, we have Deerborne heaters so, the top of the big one is also a great place for me.

Hi again,  this is my favorite yeast dough for sweet rolls.  It is done in the food processor, and doesn't make a huge batch.  That is great when one has a smaller family.         NORENE'S YUMMY YEAST DOUGH 1 tsp. sugar 1/4 c Warm water 1 pkg yeast ( I use the rapid rise) 1/3 c lukewarm milk or water 3 c flour 1/3 c sugar 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 c butter (1 stick cut in chunks) 2 eggs Dissolve sugar in 1/4 cup water.  Sprinkle yeast over and let stand for 8-10 min. Stir to dissolve.  Meanwhile heat milk until steaming, but not boiling.  Cool to lukewarm.    (Steel Knife)  Place flour, sugar and salt in processor bowl.  Pulse to mix.  Add butter and process for 20 seconds until no large pieces of butter remain.  Add dissolved yeast mixture and process for another 5 seconds.  Beat eggs slightly and add to milk.  Add to dough through feed tube while machine is running.  If machine begins to slow down add a little more flour( up to 1/4 cup).  Once dough has formed a mass or ball around the blades, process about 30-40 seconds longer.    Empty bowl onto lightly floured board.  Knead dough by hand for 1-2 minutes until smooth and elastic.  Small bubbles will begin to form under the surface of the dough, and it will not cling to your hands or the board.  Try to work with as little flour as possible in order to prevent dough from becoming too dry once baked.    Place dough into a large bowl which has been greased with about 2 tsp of salad oil, butter or margarine.  Turn dough over so that all surfaces are lightly greased.  Cover with tin foil, or plastic wrap and let rise until double in bulk.  Punch down and let rise again if desired or form into rolls and then let rise.  Dough may be used to make Cinnamon buns, Crescents, Sticky buns , Hot cross buns etc.

Ahhhh, Sticky buns....With pecans and a cream cheese frosting plopped on the top. That is a bit of heaven.  I can't make them myself, well I should say I don't make them because a batch is so many and it is just me eating them.  So I wait for the county fair and "indulge" then or if I am out and see pecan or sticky buns on a menu I will ask about them NEVER are they "up to standards" so I usually pass on them.  I suppose I could make them and toss them into the freezer and bake them one or two at a time. Now onto another Hotly debated subject here.  Mayo VS Miracle Whip.   I will use either for Deviled Eggs.  My husband will have only Mayo on a sandwich (both slices of bread) I will use either but have been cutting back and often use 0 Fat  Greek Yogurt in place of mayo.  Sort of like using sour cream, needs a little flavor boost but texture wise it's ok.

Hey Nicki I never thought of using Greek yogurt in place of Mayo!  You a a fountain of ideas!

I high-light, copy and open a new word doc.  Then paste to the word doc and then save to where you want it to be.

Yea this is a good way to use up all those Easter eggs we all make too many of.  Lots of times we have our fair share of egg salad sandwiches!
