40 minute Hamburger Buns

By Hallie Chinault

12 homemade hamburger rolls with only a 10-15 minute rising time.

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water

2 Tablespoons yeast

3 Tablespoon sugar

3 Tablespoons vegetable oil

1 egg

1 teaspoon salt

3-3 ½ cups flour

In a mixing bowl, combine yeast, sugar, in warm water and let stand for 5 minutes. Add oil, egg, salt. Stir together. Add enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 3-5 minutes. Immediately divide into 12 pieces and shape each into a ball. Place 3” apart on greased baking sheets. Cover, let rise 10-15 minutes until double in bulk. Bake at 425 degrees for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown, remove bread to cool.

Sweet Baby Ray’s Crockpot Chicken

4-6 chicken breast

1 bottle Sweet Baby Ray’s sauce

1/4 cup vinegar

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp garlic powder

Mix everything but chicken

Place chicken in crockpot (frozen is ok)

Pour sauce mixture over chicken

Cook on low 4-6 hours


1 cup sugar

1 cup milk

½ tsp soda

1 Tbsp. melted butter or margarine

1 egg

1 cup persimmons

1 ½ cups plain flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. allspice

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 sweet potato, grated

1 cup raisins

1 cup coconut

½ cup chopped nuts

Add sugar to persimmons which have been pressed through colander. Add milk, egg and dry ingredients. Mix well. Bake in a lightly greased shallow pan or baking dish at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Cool and cut in squares. (This is better than any fruit cake you ever eaten, family favorite).

Recipe from Quaker Gap Baptist Church Cookbook by Peggy H. Wall from Mae Goff Wall.


1 lb hot sausage, uncooked

8 oz cream cheese, softened

1 1/4 cups Bisquick

4 oz cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400F.

Mix all ingredients until well combined. (I use my KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook attachment) Roll into 1-inch balls. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until brown.

Sausage balls may be frozen uncooked. If baking frozen, add a few minutes to the baking time.

{Cool Whip, vanilla pudding mix, and a can of pumpkin}

I make this every year. You use 16 oz of cool whip, 3 small boxes instant vanilla pudding *** dry mix only*** DON’T make the pudding*** , one small can of pumpkin. Mix everything together and then add some pumpkin pie spice. Serve with graham crackers. SOOO soooo good!!!

Pepperoni and Mozzarella Pull Apart Bread


1/3 cup favorite flavored dipping oil

2 teaspoons garlic powder

2 (16 ounce) pkgs pre-made pizza dough or homemade pizza dough

1 (7 oz) pkg sliced pepperoni

1 (8 oz) pkg shredded mozzarella cheese


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

2. Separate pizza dough into small bite sized pieces.

3. In a bowl add your favorite flavored dipping oil. Toss dough pieces in dipping oil to lightly coat.

4. Layer dough pieces in bottom of bundt or fluted tube pan, next layer sliced pepperoni, shredded cheese and sprinkle with garlic powder. Repeat layers again, and end with final layer of dough pieces.

5. Bake in the preheated oven until the bread is browned and cooked through in the center, 30-40 min

6. Remove from oven, and invert the pan on a cutting board; the bread will fall out of the pan in one piece.

7. Serve by pulling the bread apart into individual servings with optional marinara dipping sauce on the side.

Layer until about 2/3 of the pan is full. Definitely plan for it to feed a hungry crowd. You can scale down the ingredients if you choose to feed a smaller crowd. You can serve it hot or room temperature —
