 Do you need a fun way to start the conversation

at your table this Thanksgiving?  

Then how about baking some Thankful Rolls to serve to your family and friends?

These Thankful Rolls are easy to put together.

All you need is a dinner roll dough recipe or frozen dinner roll dough and

pieces of paper with Thankful Messages written on them inserted into the rolls BEFORE they rise.

These Thankful Rolls come from a GUEST Blogger…

“Mamamia” from My Biscuits Are Burning

She has been a regular on our Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party since we started

and week after week she shares delicious recipes with us, including these great Thankful Rolls

that would make a GREAT addition to any Thanksgiving meal.

This recipe is originally from The Idea Room.
Things Needed
slips of paper and pen
favorite dinner roll recipe
muffin pan
Write down different notes on the slips of paper.
Examples are:  I am thankful for (blank) because…
I am thankful for (dad, mom, brother, sister, etc…) because….
Tell your top ten thankful list.
Fold the notes and wrap them in foil.
Take your favorite roll dough and make small dough balls.
Take two small dough balls and put a note in between and place them together in a greased muffin tin.
Let them rise the recommended time and bake as you normally would according to your recipe.
Then, serve them.
Your guests will be surprised that there’s a little note waiting for them.
Just be sure no one eats a note on accident! 
It’s like a fortune cookie, but for rolls.  They help spark a fun dinner conversation.
The Results…
We had Thankful Rolls for our Thanksgiving dinner last year and everyone thought it was a fun idea.
My 7 yr. old especially liked this idea and asked if we could do it again this year.  
My husband tried to sneak a roll before dinner and bit into some foil.
HA!  But, he was taste testing the Honey Butter he made to go with these rolls.
Honey Butter

1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/8 cup honey
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. vanilla 
Combine everything together in a mixer or with a handmixer.  Chill.
