Gold Medal Century of Success Cookbook

Today I have some more "older" recipes. I don't remember where or when I got this cookbook, but the pages are well-worn with food spots, and the cookbook automatically opens up to the most-used pages. 

I guess it doesn't look too bad for a 31 year-old cookbook

I have made many other cinnamon roll recipes since then, but this is the first cinnamon roll I baked. I have been asked for my cinnamon roll and orange roll recipes so I'm posting them and a couple more too.

I had to laugh when I read the comment at the bottom of the page, "This is an updated version of the sticky buns so popular with 17th-century Pennsylvania Dutch settlers. It calls for an overnight rising of the shaped rolls in the refrigerator...an easy way to serve hot, homemade rolls for breakfast." I wonder what they would say now?

The following recipe is for Overnight Caramel Pecan Rolls and Overnight Cinnamon Rolls. They each make two dozen rolls.

 These are gooey and sticky rolls

These recipes are from "Gold Medal Century of Success Cookbook ...

See Overnight Caramel Pecan Rolls on Key Ingredient.

This recipe is for a Sweet Roll Dough with three variations of sweet rolls; Orange Rolls, Cinnamon Twists and Hungarian Coffee Cake. 

 Our family favorite was the Orange Rolls

  1. ve had this cookbook since the early 80s. Mine is well used, well marked, awesome. My family loves the Hungarian Coffee Cake. The cookbook is a collector item and way overpriced now. There is a revised edition, but I can't remember the name. It also came with full color pictures of each item.

  2. I also have this book and it is a standard - especially at Christmas, Do you happen to have the Jeweled Fruitcake recipe and if so, would you be willing to share it. We are in the process of moving and my cookbook is in storage somewhere - I have not been able to find it online and it is my husband and son's favorite!

  3. I also have this cookbook and it is a favorite - especially at Christmas. We are in the process of moving and my book is somewhere in our storage unit. Would you be willing to share the Jeweled Fruitcake recipe from the book since I have not been able to find it online? It is my son and husband's favorite and I would like to continue our holiday fruitcake tradition. Thanks!
