Recipe by Hannah
READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Combine 1 cup butter (or shortening) and milk in a small saucepan. Heat until butter is melted; set aside to cool.
  • Dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in the warm water.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt together.
  • Add the milk mixture and the yeast mixture in the egg mixture, stirring to blend.
  • Add the flour and baking powder; stir until no dry patches remain. The dough will be wet and sticky. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Divide dough into four parts, and roll each part into 1/2 inch thick circles on a floured surface.
  • 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.
  • 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.).
  • Bake rolls for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
  • Note: Prep time does not contain overnight or rising time.
