Bake up sweet convenience with this freezer-friendly dough from Kristine Buck of Payson, Utah. “This recipe was handed down to me from my aunt, an awesome cook!” says Kristine. “I love having homemade rolls available anytime I want...especially during the holidays.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + freezing Bake: 15 min. YIELD:32 servings


  • 3 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup mashed potato flakes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the butter, milk powder, sugar, potato flakes, eggs, salt and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a heavily floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Divide dough in half. Roll each portion into a 12-in. circle; cut each circle into 16 wedges. Roll up wedges from the wide ends and place point side down 2 in. apart on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Curve ends to form crescents.
  • 3. Cover and freeze. When firm, transfer to a large resealable plastic freezer bag. Freeze for up to 4 weeks.
  • 4. To use frozen rolls: Arrange frozen rolls 2 in. apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Cover and thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
  • 5. Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled. Bake at 350° for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 32 rolls.
