I make these fluffy, buttery rolls every year. They always turn out velvety and crisp and any leftovers work wonderfully for sandwiches. —Michelle Minaker, Two Rivers, Wisconsin

  • 5-1/2 to 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  1. In a large bowl, combine 3 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat milk and oil to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add eggs; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Divide dough into thirds. Roll each portion into a 12-in. circle; brush with butter. Cut each circle into 12 wedges.
  3. Roll up wedges from the wide end and place point side down 2 in. apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Curve ends to form crescents. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 3 dozen.

"Experimented with this recipe before Thanksgiving among others and it was the winner. Did cut back a touch on the sugar. Split into fourths to roll out and my family has devoured every batch!"

"These were good. I used a little too much sugar in this recipe, but otherwise they turned out fantastic. I can't wait for another dinner where I can make these as a side."

"This was a fantastic recipe. I let them rise a little billte longer, used 1/2 cup of butter instead of oil and bushed with butter before placing in the over.

They are GREAT!!!!!"

"At what point should the rolls be frozen? Should I bake all rolls as directed or freeze the dough after dividing onto thirds? We baked 1/3 of the dough and froze the other 2/3rds."
