Thanksgiving Butter Rolls

Thanksgiving Dinner is incomplete without my family's favorite:


  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla


  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. butter


Use your favorite biscuit recipe or refrigerator biscuits. Pinch off a small amount of dough and roll out to saucer size. Fill with these ingredients and fold over all four corners. Place in a baking dish and bake until they begin to brown on top.


Mix sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Cook until thickened; pour over cooked butter rolls.

Hi there, I'm sure there are missing ingredients
(at least, flour for sure), in this recipe.

Could you please check and repost a corrected version. Thank you,

I,m sorry but I did leave out the dough for the butter roll. What I actually do is use Hungry Jack Biscuits which you press together and roll out ,then fill them with the butter,sugar and vanilla mixture before baking.You may want to use a mixture like making Bisquick biscuits.The Hungry Jack just makes a softer crust.

Hi, this recipe sounds like it make some pretty good butter rolls for Thanksgiving dinner. Where is the first part of it? Do you start with making biscuit dough; then follow the steps you have listed? I would like to try this for Thanksgiving.

Yes, something is wrong with this. Perhaps too much milk? Could it be 2 1/2 Tablespoons of milk instead of 2 1/2 Cups?


Editor's Note: The recipe has been changed to Tablespoons. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
