Favorite Yeast Rolls Recipe
- 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
- 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.
Reviews for Favorite Yeast Rolls
"My husband's favorite dinner rolls!"
"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!"
"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."
"easiest roll recipe and delicious my family loved"
"the rolls were good, but not the rolls I'm looking for. I want a roll like the ones served in a steak house. Maybe a Ranch roll?"
"I make these very often. They are very easy and everyone is always impressed that they are homemade! My husband always gets excited when he sees me making these!"
"Slightly sweet and fabulous texture. Make them often!"
"I am not sure how I posted this X 2 but try and overlook my iliterate computer skills."
"They sound sooo good"
"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 & biscuitsor more like regular yeast rolls. Yummy"
