Cover and refrigerate overnight or up to 3 days, punching down daily.
  3. To bake, punch dough down. Pinch off small portions of dough; roll into 1-in. balls. Place three balls each in greased muffin cups. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1-1/2 to 2 hours. beat egg yolk and water; brush over rolls. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.
