These golden brown rolls are my mother's bread of choice for holiday meals. No one in our extended family can imagine a celebratory meal without them. They have such a rich taste that you might not need to butter them! -Kevin Weeks North Palm Beach, Florida

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, egg, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn 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 hour.
  3. Punch the dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 12-in. circle; cut each circle into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges from the wide end and place pointed end down 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Curve ends to form crescents. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 dozen (24 servings, 1 per serving).

MY REVIEW

"I make this for every special occasion that I have at our home, or when I have to take a special dish. Everyone begs for it! They are tender, melt in your mouth, beautiful rolls. I usually make a couple of batches and freeze them in heavy tin foil. They are just as wonderful 6 - 10 months down the road, if you wrap them well. Just slide the frozen rolls, still wrapped in their tin foil, into a 350 oven for about 20-25 minutes. Perfect! I have tried tons of bread recipes trying to find the perfect butterhorn - these are it. My search is over! Thank you, Taste of Home!!!"

"I gave this a four star only because it was kind of a nothing flavor. HOWEVER if you add other spices it is great and this was a real easy recipe to make. Last night I wanted to make some bread sticks to replicate those from Olive Garden to go with soup and I used this recipe. The bread sticks turned out great. Sprinkled with Parmesan cheese they were awesome. It made 18 2oz. sticks and baked at 375* for 16 minutes. Brush with the melted butter and then sprinkle on the cheese."
