Gold Color Challenge #4

So this week is a recipe in the color gold. 

I made Ham and Cheese Rolls.  I got the recipe from my aunt Kathy (Seppala). 

Raised Refrigerator Biscuits (This is the dough we use and what we got from Kathy ~ You can use whatever kind of roll dough you want)
You can make dough ahead of time and store in the refrigerator several days.  This time, I made the dough a day ahead.

3 packages dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed potatoes
2 eggs
6 to 7 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside.  Scald milk, add butter, and stir until butter melts.  Add sugar, salt, and mashed potatoes; stir until blended and cool.  Beat in eggs and yeast; add flour, 1 cup at a time, to form a stiff dough.  Turn onto floured board and knead until smooth.  {I didn't do this.}  (If dough is not needed right away, store in covered bowl in the refrigerator.  Punch down and knead several times each day it is stored.)

To make the Ham and Cheese Rolls you need:
Roll dough
Chopped pieces of ham
Shredded cheddar cheese (we also used mozzarella in these ones because we had some)

To assemble:
Flatten a lump of dough to a thin roundish shape and put a good pinch each of cheese and ham in the middle.

Fold the sides up and pinch together forming a ball.  Put seam side down on a greased cookie sheet and let rise.

Bake at 365* for about 20 minutes (depending on size) {ours cooked 3-5 mins shorter than that.}

The end result ~ deliciousness!!!

Some of them.

All of them ~ I think it made 65:)  I made one batch of dough.

Mom made Plain Muffins with cinnamon sugar on top.  She thought they looked golden when they were dipped in butter, before the cinnamon sugar was on:)

Tara made meringue cookies.

And Rachel is off enjoying her stay in New Hampshire ~ {Are you going to make the cinnamon rolls you told us you were going to make this week?}  If you read this Rachel . . . you better get at it.  Ha ha ha!  Enjoy your stay ~ see you in a week:)

God's Peace and Love,


  1. You nailed it ladies! Did you eat all the ham and cheese rolls in one night or are they something you freeze and eat for lunches later?! I've never heard of those:)

  3. We actually were going huckleberry picking with Anders and Clara and that's what they were for. We ate them on the way up. They did get all gone. Love, Tara

  4. Karen ~ I actually think I might make some before school starts and have them to bring in our lunch for school. Usually we would make a couple batches of dough and refrigerate the dough and make them fresh when we wanted them. Love, Aimee
