happy thanksgiving!

From all of us at Wasatch Back Artists, happiest of Thanksgivings!

We are grateful this Season for the opportunity to create, to share our joy, and for the friendships of each  of you!  May your day be delicious with family, friendship, love and of course good food!

Enjoy!  And stay tuned…Carole has a beautiful giveaway we’ll be sharing this weekend!

Along the Wasatch Back, we’re cozying it up as the temperatures are amazingly frigid.  Inside, the kiddos and I are baking orange rolls this morning for the big feast…

Orange Rolls (Mom’s recipe)

Ingredients
2 pkg yeast {4 1/2 tsp}
1 1/2 cups warm water
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 well beaten eggs
4 1/2 cups flour

Orange Butter
1/3 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 grated orange rind

  1. First dissolve yeast in warm water.  Then mix all ingredients (except orange butter) until smooth.  Let rise one hour.
  2. Refrigerate covered, over night.
  3. In the morning or a couple hours before the dinner, divide dough into thirds.  Roll out dough and paint on orange butter.  Cut dough into strips.
  4. Fold and roll and twist strips of dough and place on a greased cookie sheet or muffin tin.  {My mom also paints a little extra orange butter on the top after we form them…she usually makes another batch of orange butter to do this}
  5. Let rise one hour.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 4-6 minutes {my mom always does 6 min. in So. California}
