- In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat milk, water and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed 3 minutes. Add 2 eggs; beat on high speed for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 portions. Shape into balls. Divide between two greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pans. Cover with a clean, lightweight towel and let rise until doubled, about 30 min.
- Preheat oven to 375°. Brush rolls with lightly beaten egg. Sprinkle with toppings for rolls of your choice. Bake 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.

I do not think this recipe in for me. I like the topping idea but the dough did not raise like normal bread dough. I have tried it twice and neither time did it work out. I will not be remaking this one.
I made half of this recipe for dinner one night. There were 4 people eating, and I didn't want to make 2 dozen rolls. Like any bread recipe, it is time consuming. I had trouble getting the dough to come together. I had to keep adding flour before it was no longer sticky. As the other reviewers said, it didn't raise very much. I even put this out in the shade on my porch on a 92 degree day. After baking, the rolls had risen but were on the denser side; not light and fluffy like I would have hoped for, but they had a good taste. There were three rolls left over, and the next day they were VERY dense and hard. This is not a roll you could make the day before. They are best eaten when made (and still warm). I don't know if I will make this recipe again. The icebox butterhorns from Taste of Home is a better recipe. They are lighter and fluffier. Plus, they freeze well.
I should have known better than to put the yeast in with the flour without letting it rise first. They were ok but I have had better; do like the topping idea
A lot of work, but it makes a lot and they freeze very well. Don't skimp on the topping, that really makes it special.
Like many of my other reviews...mine didn't look like the picture. Even with the pan sitting in front of the fireplace as my warm place int he house it seemed they had a hard time rising to the the desired height. They were okay in taste, kind of sweet. I might try them again before deciding to toss the recipe to see if they are any better the second time around in looks.
