    Serves: 6-8



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine 1 cup butter (or shortening) and milk in a small saucepan. Heat until butter is melted; set aside to cool.
    2. 2
      Dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in the warm water.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, beat the eggs, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt together.
    4. 4
      Add the milk mixture and the yeast mixture in the egg mixture, stirring to blend.
    5. 5
      Add the flour and baking powder; stir until no dry patches remain. The dough will be wet and sticky. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
    6. 6
      Divide dough into four parts, and roll each part into 1/2 inch thick circles on a floured surface.
    7. 7
      Spread surface with the melted butter. Cut each circle like a pie into 8 or 12 triangles, and roll up from larger to small end.
    8. 8
      Place rolls point side down on a baking sheet, and allow to rise until doubled (1-3 hours, depending on the temperature and altitude.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C.).
    9. 9
      Bake rolls for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

      The first thing I did was cut the recipe in half. I used an ABM to prep the dough last night, covered the ABM pan with plastic wrap then placed in the fridge until this afternoon. The dough was a little sticky but I floured my hands. Important to flour your hands, rolling pin and work surface frequently to avoid the bread dough sticking. The rolls proofed in the oven on the proofing feature for only 35 minutes and by that time they not only had doubled but started to lose their shape. Sprinkled very lightly each roll with coarse salt and baked for about 12 minutes turning the baking pans halfway through. Delicious, wonderful texture, buttery rich! Thanks for posting Reviewed for Best of 2011.

      I've made these countless times, and every time they're perfect. The first day the dough is basically a batter, but as long as it sits overnight in the fridge, its perfectly dough-like the next day. They're so butter-y and flavorful. I never use any other recipe :) Thank you Hannah:)

      Even though I followed the recipe exactly as written, the dough was so wet the next day, that there was no way it could be used for rolls the way it was. I think I would have had to add another 2 or more cups of flour for it to be rollable. I did not want to take the chance on wasting additional ingredients.
