This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law. They are really soft, fluffy, and so easy to make!
1 package Rapid Rise Yeast (I use regular yeast = 1 heaping Tbs yeast)
2 cups hot tap water
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter or margarine, melted
1 Tablespoon oil
6 to 8 cups bread flour
Sprinkle yeast over water & let stand 5 minutes.
Mix in eggs, sugar, salt, and melted butter or margarine.
Mix in flour 2 cups at a time until dough is firm (usually 6 cups).
Put 1 Tablespoon oil in bottom of large bowl.
Place dough in bowl and turn until dough is completely coated with oil.
Cover bowl with damp cloth & let stand at room temperature for 3 hours, overnight, or until doubled.
Roll dough onto floured surface until ½ inch thick & cut out rolls.
Let rise for another 1½ hours or until doubled.
Brush tops of rolls with melted butter.
Bake rolls at 325˚ to 350˚ for 20 to 25 minutes, or until tops are a light golden brown.
(I also rub butter on the tops as soon as they come out because I like them to be soft not crusty, but this is just my preference.)
Never tried yeast rolls, I alway bake buttermilk biscuits. I need to try these.Thanks for the recipe. Geri
Thanks! Your photos really make the recipe look easy.
Your rolls look really good…I have never used the rapid rise yeast…for some reason I always choose the old standby.Check out my blog for a Christmas in July Giveaway.
Oops!! I didn't realize I still had Rapid Rise Yeast in my recipe! I just use regular yeast myself, but this is the original recipe she gave me and I just look over the "Rapid Rise" part. Thanks for pointing that out for me!
Yummy!!! Those look great. Thanks for sharing your recipe and joining us for the TMTT anniversary today.
Wow! Looks amazing, I could eat one of those right now!
I ran across your blog the other day & have really enjoyed reading it. These rolls look so good, that I had to comment and tell you that I'm copying down the recipe and am going to make them as soon as I get time! Thanks for sharing 🙂
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. And thanks for joining, and I'm so glad to hear that you're enjoying my blog.
I just had to tell you that I finally got around to trying this recipe. I made them for Thanksgiving and they were PERFECT! My husband and I can't get enough of them! Thanks again!
