TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min.
MAKES: 24 servings


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Additional melted butter


  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine the milk, butter, sugar, egg, salt, yeast mixture and 3 cups flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Do not knead. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each into a 12-in. circle; cut each into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges from the wide ends. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets, point side down. Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately brush with additional melted butter. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 dozen.

"Easy and yummy"

"To psylin - To get the dough to rise when it's cold - put a pan of very hot water on the lowest rack of your oven (unheated) and then put the dough on the rack above it to rise. Sometimes I preheat the oven to 150 degrees and then TURN OFF THE OVEN, leave the door open for a few minutes to cool slightly and then put the dough in to rise."

"I would like to try these but I'm not experienced at working with yeast. Can someone tell me a good way to get the dough to rise when the weather is cold? Thank you so much."

"I have to make these for every holiday meal. My kids and nephews eat them as fast as they can! They are so good and they turn out perfect every time. To mac6112 I don't have a bread machine and I always use my kitchen aid mixer for step 1. If you have strong muscles you can mix this by hand and it will turn out great! I always mix in the last addition of flour by hand. It makes the rolls more tender."

"I don't have a bread mixer, can I mix it by hand and still get it right?"
