So, about 10 or 12 years ago Devon and I were hosting Thanksgiving or Christmas at our house. I attempted to make my Nanny's yeast rolls. They didn't rise. Trent, Devon's brother, called them discuits. They were very flat like a disc, so I guess discuits was a suitable name.
Since then, every couple of years I try to make them and the same thing happens--they rise in the bowl but when I get them in the pan- they don't rise and you don't end up with big fluffy rolls--you end up with discuits.
I just knew they were going to turn out this year...look at my cute little helpers...
Booya! No discuits this year baby! We've got rolls-big fat and fluffy ones!
They tasted as good as they look!
