    6.) Spread filling over rectangles to within ½ inch of edges. Starting with a long side, roll up dough, jelly-roll style. Place loaves, seam sides down, in prepared pans. Cover again; let rise in a warm place until doubled, 45 minutes.

    7.) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Brush loaves with beaten egg. Bake until brown, 45 to 50 minutes. Transfer pans to wire racks to cool slightly. Loosen loaves by running a metal spatula around sides of pans. Turn out onto racks to cool completely.

    These are AMAZING! You can freeze ahead although I have had trouble with them rising the 2nd time if they stay frozen too long. Or you can just make them fresh! The recipe is LARGE though so you might want to halve it in that case!

    Make-Ahead Butterhorns

    (makes 32 rolls)
    • 2 Tablespoons dry yeast, heaping

    • 1/3 cup warm water (110-115 degrees)

    • 9 cups flour, divided (you can use any mixture of white or whole-wheat flour you’d like)

    • 2 cups warm milk (110-115 degrees)

    • 1 cup butter, melted

    • 1 cup sugar (we substituted sucanat)

    • 6 eggs

    • 2 teaspoons salt

    • 3-4 Tablespoons butter, melted
    In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add 4 cups flour, milk, butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Beat 2 minutes or until smooth.

    Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto floured board and knead lightly. (Or, knead in mixer until sides of bowl are clean, then knead two more minutes.)

    Place in a greased bowl, turning dough once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (1-3 hours).

    Punch dough down and divide into four equal parts. Roll each part into a 12-inch circle and brush with melted butter.

    Cut each circle into 8 pie-shaped wedges.

    Roll up each wedge from wide edge to tip of dough and pinch to seal. Place rolls, top down, on parchment lined baking sheets and let rise until doubled in size. bake at 375 until lightly browned, about 8-10 minutes. Brush with melted butter as soon as they come out of the oven. Remove and serve immediately or cool on wire racks.

    To freeze: Instead of letting shaped rolls rise again, place them on wax paper (or parchment paper) lined cookie sheet. Freeze until hard. Place in freezer bags and keep frozen until needed.

    To bake: Take out as many frozen rolls as you’ll need and place them on a greased baking sheet. Thaw for five hours or until doubled in size. Bake as directed above.

    This recipe makes a ton so feel free to cut in half if making them all right away. Or make some and freeze some. I would use within a month or so - too long and they don’t seem to rise as well.

    My Crazy Indulgent Garlic Bread

    1 loaf French or Italian bakery bread, sliced horizontally

    1 stick butter, softened

    ½ cup real mayo

    ¾ cup - 1 cup freshly shredded Monterey Jack

    ¾ cup - 1 cup freshly shredded Sharp Cheddar

    ½ cup freshly shredded Parmesan (Or Asiago or Romano or any mix thereof!)

    3-4 cloves garlic, finely minced

    4 green onions, chopped (if freezing omit - strange things happen to green onions in the freezer - blech!)

    Dash of salt

    First, mix cheeses with mayo, butter garlic and green onions. Add dash of salt if desired. Spread mixture thickly on slices of bakery bread. (You can flash freeze at this point and then transfer to 2 gallon size freezer bags - Bake from frozen) Bake on parchment lined cookie sheet (just for easy cleanup) at 425 for about 10 minutes or until cheese mixture is melted, golden and bubbly.

    Slice and serve. Then run around the block 3 times. Pronto. :)
