Favorite Yeast Rolls Recipe

These golden brown rolls are light and tender…and easy to make. To cut out the biscuits, we use the top of a drinking glass, and they turn out just fine. I like them warm with lots of butter.—Emma Rea, Columbia, South Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 to 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) quick-rise yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup warm water (120° to 130°)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Add water and butter; beat on medium speed for 3 minutes or until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll dough to 3/8-in. thickness; cut with a lightly floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  • 3. Bake at 375° for 11-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack. Yield: about 10.

"Easy southern roll recipe, however I would substitute milk or buttermilk to make a richer taste. A great basic recipe for quick yeast rolls"

"What a great, easy recipe. Instead of rolling them out, I just divided dough into 12 balls and put them into a 8 inch round cake pan. Within 1 hour, hot rolls were on the table."

"This is pretty much my go-to roll recipe now--it's very quick to make--1.5 hrs. start to finish. I do not roll mine out, I simply divide the dough into 12/13 pieces & shape into balls. I place them about 3/4" apart as I prefer my rolls to touch so we can pull them apart hot out of the oven!"

"The over all recipe was very easy and very tasty, but i didn't like rolls when cut them like biscuits. To me they are much better when rolled out like yeast rolls are meant to be. The dough would also make excellent cinnamon rolls and dessert braids as well."

"great recipe, I don't have a biscuit cutter so just cut out squares with a knife and they still turned out great, had to rise a little longer than called for, but other than that they were wonderful."

"These sound like something I might be able to make, my yeast bread skills are lacking but I am trying I am taking it you do not let them rise before cutting out. And just let them rise the one time. The look good in the pic. Are they kind of between rolls & biscuits

or more like regular yeast rolls. Yummy"
