Out-Of-This World Rolls are light and buttery and sure to please everyone.  Oh, the smell of rolls baking in the oven just says home.  I remember when we were trying to sell our home that the realtor told us, “if you want to sell your home, bake some bread”.  The aroma of freshly baked bread gives the occupants a sense of belonging and makes one want to sit down and enjoy a warm, fresh homemade roll.  It makes them feel like they are at home.  You could even add some honey or yummy freezer jam.  Raspberry is our favorite.  For Thanksgiving or any occasion try some Out-Of-This World Rolls, they are sure to please.

Out-Of-This World Rolls
Recipe Type: Bread

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 24 rolls
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110 – 130) degrees
  • 2 pkgs. active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  1. In a medium container, place warm water, yeast and 1 tsp sugar. This activates the yeast.
  2. Then in a large bowl, combine melted butter, 1/2 cup sugar, beaten eggs, 1 cup water and salt.
  3. Stir in activated yeast mixture and 2 1/2 cups flour. Mix on low until smooth and well blended.
  4. Add the remaining flour to make a soft dough. Mix for about 5 minutes.
  5. Cover the dough and allow it to rise for 1 hour, in a warm dry place until doubled in size.
  6. Punch down, cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  7. Three hours before baking, remove the dough and divide into two equal pieces.
  8. I like to place the dough on a round rubber mat that is used for making pie crust or just use your counter top lightly dusted with flour.
  9. Roll the dough into a circle about 12 – 14″ wide and about 1/2″ thick. Cut the dough with a pizza cutter into 12 equal pieces.
  10. Take the larger end and roll the dough up, this will look like a croissant.
  11. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 – 15 minutes.
  12. Butter the rolls with a pastry brush as soon as they come out of the oven.
  13. Place on a rack so they don’t sweat and go soggy.
