For the Butter Rolls
  • 2 Cups Self Rising Flour
  • ½ Cup Shortening
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 stick (1/2 Cup) Butter, softened (course you can use margarine, don’t make no special trips to the store!)
  • ¼ Cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
For the Milk Sauce
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 ts vanilla
  • 1ts nutmeg
  1. Cut shortening into flour really well with a fork. Stir in milk.
  2. On a floured surface, dump out dough and press together with your hands to form a ball.
  3. Roll out into a rectangle (about 7×10 in size). Spread softened butter over dough and then sprinkle ¼ cup sugar and cinnamon over top. Roll it up like a jelly roll and press it together lightly.
  4. Cut into nine slices about one inch thick each. Place into a lightly greased 8×8 baking dish.
  5. In medium sauce pot, combine all milk sauce ingredients. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to bubble lightly. Pour over rolls in pan.
  6. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes, or until rolls are lightly browned on top.
  7. Allow to sit for a few minutes once it is done for the rolls to soak up more sauce. After you put each roll on a plate, spoon more sauce over it.


  1. I have been looking for this receipe forever!!!!

  2. Long time looking for this. My grandmother instead of rolling she would lay out 2 sheets of dough on cookie sheets then do all the butter and sugar and cinnamon then bake for 8- 10 min. Then put them in a dish with the sauce layering and reheat again for 10-15 min. "Until it looked right" for her. This rolling up like a cinnamon roll sounds yummy and easy/

  3. My husband always talked about butter rolls his mother used to make, however, his description and my skills never matched up. Finally, I have a recipe I can follow and actually sounds quite tasty. I will definitely try this.
