Charlene's Cinnamon Rolls 
3 3/4 Cups Milk 
1 1/2 Cups Oil 
1 1/2 Cups warm Water 
1 1/4 Cups Sugar 
1 Heaping Tbs. Salt 
6 Eggs (beaten) 
13 1/2 cups Flour (approximately) 
Cinnamon (I just like to throw some in, I don't know how much. It just seems to 
help the flavor) 
2 Tbs. Instant Yeast 
Heat milk to warm. Combine milk, oil, water, sugar, salt and eggs. 
Add about 7 cups flour, cinnamon and yeast, mix thoroughly. 
Continue to add flour and mix until consistency is sticky, but not wet. 
Put towel or lid on and let rise until double. Punch down and let rise again. 
Roll out in rectangle and smear soft butter on dough then sprinkle brown sugar 
and cinnamon on. 
We like chopped pecans sprinkled on too, whatever you like :-) 
Roll up and cut into rolls. Place on pans and let rise until ready to bake. Bake 
at 350 
until light brown. 
We like Cream Cheese Frosting w/ maple flavoring on them. 
You probably already have your favorite Cream Cheese Frosting, but I will throw 
it in, just in case. 
Cream Cheese Frosting 
8 Tbs. softened butter 
12 oz. softened cream cheese 
8 2/3 cups powdered sugar 
2 tsp vanilla 
2 tsp maple flavoring 
enough milk to get it to the right consistency 
Blend butter and cream cheese together. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating 
until smooth and creamy. Stir in vanilla and maple flavoring. Stir in milk, a 
little at a time, to get it to the right consistency. 
I use this roll recipe for dinner rolls, fry bread and hamburger buns. They 
never fail me.

Set out cream cheese to soften. About 1 1/2 hours before wanting to eat, put chicken and all other ingredients into crock pot on high. Keep checking and stirring to mix all ingredients together until melted. Leave on high for awhile, and then turn down to low.

Jalapeno Chip Dip

24 oz. sour cream
1 can diced jalapenos
1 can diced green chiles
onion powder
garlic powder
coarse ground pepper
Lawry's seasoning salt

To the sour cream add: 1/2 can jalapenos and some of the juice (adjust according to desired heat level), 1 can green chiles, palmful of onion powder, 1/3 palmful garlic powder, 1/3 palmful Lawry's seasoning salt, dash of pepper.

Be careful with garlic powder, start off with a small amount. If the dip tastes to "garlicky" the only way to fix it is to add more sour cream. I prefer eating this dip with Ruffles. The longer it sits the hotter it gets.

Sopapilla Cheesecake

2 pkg. cream cheese
3/4 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 c. melted butter
2 pkgs. refrigerated crescent rolls
cinnamon/sugar mixture

Grease 9 x 13 pan. Lay one pkg. of crescent rolls on bottom of pan. Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Spread over bottom layer of crescent rolls. Lay second pkg. of crescent rolls on top. Pour one cup of melted butter on top and sprinkle cinnamon/sugar mixture on top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Coconut Fruit Dip

1 large tub Cool Whip
1 large pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1 can/box coconut cream (found on alcohol isle)
