Ready In:
18 rolls




  • Whisk yeast, 1/2 cup warm water and 1/4 cup sugar. Allow to stand until yeast is dissolved.
  • In the meantime, add eggs, butter and 2 cup warm water in bowl and mix. Add dissolved yeast mixture and then add the remaining dry ingredients. Stir until well mixed. Cover and allow to rise 1 hour.
  • Turn onto floured board; knead once or twice to make dough easy to handle. Roll into desired shapes (I divide the dough in half and roll into a circle, melt some butter and put on top, then cut it like a pizza and roll crescent rolls). Place on greased pan. Allow to rise 20-30 minutes. Bake 10 minutes at 375 or until done.

  1. These rolls were great and were really simple especially for a first time roll cook like myself!! Thank you!!
  2. I made this recipe on 9/06/09 as part of mine and SO's dinner.To make the dough, the dough setting on my bread machine was used. I made a few mistakes in making this, first I used bread flour instead of sifted all purpose. And then I used regular yeast instead of the fast rise. After removing from the machine, the dough was made into small round balls and three were each placed into greased muffin tins. For the final rise, they were covered and left in a warm place to rise for about 30 minutes. Baked at 375 degrees for about 15 to 17 minutes. After taking one out of the pan to do a " Quality Control Test " a little margaine was spread on the roll , and instantly devoured :). Even thought I really messed up on this recipe, the rolls came out very good. Thank you for taking the time to post and, " Keep Smiling :) "
  3. These are without a doubt the fluffiest rolls I've ever made! I was a little concerned because my dough was *really* sticky, and I didn't know if they'd turn out, but they did! I shaped them into balls and baked them in a 9x9 pan (I cut the recipe in half). I'll definitely be making these again and again. They're especially nice because there's almost no kneading. :)
  4. excellent rolls-I halved the recipe an i used my bread machine i(n its order) to make these - my breaad machine has a "fast yeast-dough cycle". these rolls came out perfect-thanks for the recipe
  5. Very good recipe. I have made these a few times and the last time was today but I made a few additions such as mashed potatoes and a few other things and they were amazing!
