Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Butter Pecan Rolls

breads, desserts

1 cake compressed yeast
1 (1 envelope may be used)
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1 cup milk, scalded
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cup sifted all purpose flour
1 beaten egg
1 filling
2 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 topping
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon light corn syrup.
1/3 cup pecans

I think this recipe originally was from a Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, but I can't be sure - I've been making these for over 20 years. The recipe can be doubled successfully (yielding 2 sheet cake pans or 32 rolls). Soften yeast in lukewarm water. Combine next 4 ingredients; cool to lukewarm. Add 1 cup of the flour; beat well. Beat in yeast and egg. Gradually add remaining flour to form a soft dough; beat well. Brush top lightly with soft shortening; cover and let rise in warm place until double (1 1/2 to 2 hours). Punch down; turn out on lightly floured surface and divide dough in half. Roll each piece in 12 x 8 rectangle. FILLING: Brush each rectangle with 2 tablespoons melted butter. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tsps cinnamon; sprinkle half over each rectangle. Roll each rectangle as for a jellyroll, beginning with long side; seal edge. Cut each roll in eight 1 1/2-inch slices. TOPPING: In each of two loaf pans or one sheet cake pan or 2 cake pans, mix 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup butter and 1 tablespoon light corn syrup. Heat slowly, stirring frequently till blended. Remove from heat. Spring 1/3 cup pecans in each pan. Place 8 rolls cut side down in each pan. Cover; let rise in warm place until double (35 to 45 minutes). Bake in moderate oven (375 degrees) for 25 minutes or until done. Cool 2 or 3 minutes; invert on rack and remove pans. Makes 16 rolls. (If you leave the rolls in the pans to cool longer than a couple of minutes, they will stick as the caramel topping sets up. You can either place them back in the oven for a couple of minutes to heat up the caramel or try a warm water bath. I find it easier to turn them out quickly - so don't wander too far after removing the rolls from the oven.) Enjoy Kathie W. (kitwilli) In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
