In January the vultures come. Why I do not know unless some one is feeding them? They are no bother but somehow eerie.
They have a favorite tree just up the hill.
Often a few spread their wings to dry in the morning and create quite a spectacle. Ominous as I pass underneath !
Turkey vultures are almost as large an eagles I believe.
Why this leads me to yeast rolls I have no idea- except that in January I want to Bake! Cookies, pies , cakes and especially Breads!
Recently, Pinterest (a new addiction) pictured 30 minute yeasted dinner rolls. Intrigued I had to give them a go ... And...Success.
They lack the full flavor of slow rise but very satisfying for a quick side.
1C plus 2T warm water
1/3 cup canola oil
1/4 C sugar or honey
2T yeast (yes 2 Tablespoons)
Mix together let sit 10 minutes
1 tsp salt
1 beaten egg
Blend well then add flour gradually and mix in stand mixer 5 min or by hand 10-12 minutes
Shape into 12 rolls and place side by side in pan - ok I got carried away and made 15 rolls. Math was never my strong suite.
Bake 10-12 minutes till golden brown, remove from oven and brush with butter. Viola -hot fragrant rolls just begging for butter or jam and my house is nice and warm too :-)
