"My aunt Marylou use to make this dessert for us children back home in Courtland
She rolled out biscuit dough like she was going to make a pie shell; she cut the
dough into wide strips and spread it with butter, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg
(creamed together). She rolled the dough into a roll (she made several rolls,
depending on how large her pan was)and placed them into a baking dish. She
covered the dough rolls with milk, eggs, sugar and bake. This is all I can
remember. It was a long time ago. I am 57 now, and that was when I was about 8
I hope this information will be of some help."

"My grandmother and Aunt Ivy used to make this when I was little and it is
wonderful! I have made it and although it was good somehow is was not the same
if not served in a huge white metal pan covered with a clean dishcloth!
Dough, rolled out thin. Then pat butter and sprinkle with sugar. Roll up. Place
in large pan and pour boiling water over it. Then you put more butter and
vanilla in the water and bake in the oven! It is so good and very rich! This is
an East Texas
tradition that is becoming a lost art. "

The butter roll recipe was something my grandmother loved cooking.
Store bought biscuits or homemade biscuit dough cut to size
Place biscuits in greased baking dish
Sprinkle on cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar
Pour milk over all (approximately 1 to 1 ½ cups for large baking dish)
Bake until biscuits are brown.
There were never any measurements for this recipe all done by taste and sight.
Dessert Recipe #4 from Rita
My mom can remember
my grandmother making that. When I talked to my mom, I picked her brain about
the Roll. She said that my grandmother did one that had cinnamon and sugar in it
with a simple syrup on top. The way it was made was when the biscuit dough was
made she rolled the dough out like a jelly roll but she didn't cut the dough .
She put the roll into a baking pan and dried the roll out for a few minutes and
then poured the syrup on top. then she baked it for about 30 minutes or until
the roll was browned, but she also basted the roll during cooking. My grand
mother used water, sugar, nutmeg and butter in the syrup and she cooked it for
about 3 to 4 minutes before she poured it over the roll
