Very good, homemade roll.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put water in a 2-cup measure and add 1 tablespoon of sugar and the yeast.
  2. Let sit for a few minutes until it bubbles.
  3. In a large bowl or mixer bowl, put the milk, the remaining sugar, honey, eggs and salt.
  4. Mix well, then add the yeast mixture, then the melted butter.
  5. Mix in 3 to 4 cups of flour, then stir in more until mixture is the right consistency (forms a soft dough).
  6. Put dough on a floured board and knead it, adding more flour as necessary, until it's not sticking to the board any more, about 5 minutes.
  7. Put the dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise about 45 minutes.
  8. Punch the dough down and let rise again until double in size.
  9. To shape into rolls, roll out dough on a floured surface and cut with a round biscuit cutter.
  10. Put a little melted butter in the edge of the pan and roll the edges of the rolls in the butter before placing the rolls close together in the pan.
  11. Brush the tops with melted butter.
  12. Let rise, uncovered, in a warm place until double in size.
  13. You can do this in an oven you've heated on the lowest setting for just a few minutes until it's warm.
  14. Bake in a preheated, 400F oven until brown, about 15-20 minutes.
  15. Makes about 36 rolls.
