These light, golden rolls have a heavenly homemade flavor and aroma. Mom never hesitates to whip up a batch of these from-scratch rolls, since they're a delightful way to round out a meal. -Debra Falkiner, St. Charles, Missouri

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 3/4 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 1 tablespoon

  • onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8
  • minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover
  • and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  • Punch dough down. Divide into thirds. Roll each into a 12-in. circle;
  • cut each circle into eight wedges. Brush with melted butter; roll up
  • wedges from the wide end and place, pointed end down, 2 in. apart on
  • greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until
  • doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or
  • until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.
