Herb Rolls
Hopefully I haven't posted these already, but last night we had to suffer because I couldn't find the recipe. Oh well, Jesse made his famous cheese scones and life was good. Did I say we suffered? I guess I was wrong.

 2 Tablespoons yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
 1/3 cup buttermilk
1 Tablespoon sugar
 1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup melted butter
 3 cups flour
 1 teaspoon oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons basil leaves
 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
 1/4 teaspoon hing (whatever that is)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease muffin pans.
In a large bowl add yeast to water and let sit for 30 seconds.
 Add melted butter, spices, buttermilk, salt and sugar.
Gradually stir in flour and knead for 8 minutes.
 If too wet add a little more flour.
 Grease large bowl with a little butter and add dough. Cover and let rise in warm kitchen area until double in size ( about an hour).
Fold dough over , punch down and knead.
Make 36 small balls about 1 inch in diameter.
 Fill greased muffin tins with 3 balls each. Cover and let rise for one hour.
 Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
 Serve hot. Makes 12 rolls.
