Total time
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 48 Rolls
  • ½ ounce dry yeast
  • 1⅓ cup warm water (110F will dissolve the yeast without killing it)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 8 cups bread flour (you can substitute all-purpose flour)
  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water.
  2. Combine sugar, salt, eggs, and butter in a large mixing bowl. Mix in flour a cup at a time until smooth.
  3. Cover with a clean towel and put in a warm place. Let raise until double (about 1½ hours).
  4. Punch dough down and divide into quarters. Cover remaining quarters with the towel while you work with one quarter at a time.
  5. Roll each quarter into a 12-inch circle. Cut into 12 wedges. A pizza cutter works well for this.
  6. Roll each wedge up starting at the wide end. Tuck the point under the roll and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  7. Cover and let rise approximately 1 hour.
  8. Bake at 400F for approximately 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Lightly brush tops with butter while still hot.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
