Heavenly Yeast Rolls

Heavenly Yeast Rolls

Yield: 2 dozen large rolls, or more if smaller

½ cup warm water (Not over 110º)

2 packages dry yeast

1 teaspoon sugar

1 cup warm milk

½ cup melted butter

¼ cup sugar

3 eggs

1 teaspoon salt

4 ½ cups flour

¼ cup soft butter

About ¼ cup vegetable oil


  1. In a mixer bowl, place the water and then sprinkle on the yeast and sugar. Stir mixture and then allow it to sit until bubbly. Stir in milk, 1/2 cup melted butter, sugar, eggs and salt, and mix well. Add flour and beat.
  2. Knead, either with a dough hook or by hand, until smooth and very elastic. The dough will be very soft. Cover and let rise until double, about 45 minutes.
  3. Stir down dough and turn out onto floured surface and knead several times. Roll out to about 1-inch thickness. Spread dough with ¼ cup soft butter. Fold dough over so butter is in the middle. Cut out rolls with biscuit cutter.
  4. Pour vegetable oil into a 9” x 13” baking dish. Place rolls in baking pan, turning over once to coat tops with oil. Let rise until double, about 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 375º and bake rolls 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
