Thanksgiving Recipe: Oatmeal Rolls

These are a great blend of slight nuttiness/comfort texture/healthy.

1-1/2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
1/4 cup organic butter
2/3 cup organic brown sugar
2 tsp. salt
>3 cups boiling water
2 packages yeast in 1/3 cup warm water
5-1/2 to 6 cups organic flour

Combine oatmeal, butter, brown sugar, and salt into large mixing bowl. Pour boiling water over ingredients and mix lightly. Allow to cool to luke warm temperature. Stir in yeast. Add flour until fairly stiff. Knead dough on floured board until fairly smooth (about 5 minutes). Put dough in greased bowl and cover. Let rise until double in bulk. Shape into rolls, dip in melted butter and place on cookie sheet. Let rise until double in bulk. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 15 to 17 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Makes 3 dozen rolls.
