I know that there are thousands of bread recipes.  But  I love this recipe, it is quick easy and so far fail proof.  I have made it hundreds of times and they always turn out,  so in my book it is a keeper! I also like it because you do not have to knead the dough.  I have a lot of problems with pain in my wrists, so it works best for me.  My girls and I love cooking together, some times it would be faster or less messy without their help…. but I feel it is best to let them help while they are still eager to learn.

In large bowl add

  • 2 cups warm water ( if it is too hot or too cold…you will kill the yeast.  So make sure it is warm)
  • 2 TBS yeast
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Give it a few minutes in the bowl, to make sure your yeast is working.

Then add:

  • 3 eggs whipped lightly
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Sometimes I add 1/2 cup of apple sauce to make them extra moist, in place of part of the butter.

Mix well….

Start to whisk in the flour one cup at a time ( for a total of 6 cups) you will also need 1/2- 1 cup  when you shape the rolls.

You will need to switch over to a spoon to mix with,  on about cup 4 of flour.

Dough WILL be sticky, scrap down the sides of the bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a towel…I use both.

Set aside in a warm place, (like a sunny window seat) and allow to raise.  Till doubled in size. ( if you are in a hurry let rise 20 mins other wise let it rise 60 mins).  Works best to wait the full 60 mins.

Take off the plastic wrap, punch down to get the air out.  You will need to dust with flour.

IMG_1919

Take out HALF the dough, spread on floured counter top. With your hands make  into a circle.  Keep dusting with flour so it is easy to work with. ( do the same with the other half of dough) I have found it is just easier to work with only half at a time.

Cut into wedges, and roll up in to crescent roll shape.  Or you can just make balls  in the shape of dinner rolls.

IMG_1921

Place them on a greased pan, Bake 400 degrees 10-12 mins

Once cooked, brush a bit of butter on top to give them a nice shine.  Take off baking sheet, cool on cooling rack.

Last but not least enjoy!

  7. Thank you they look delicious I’m these are also good with like a little Hershey’s chocolate squares baked on them and then I’ll sprinkle them with a little cinnamon sugar as well

  8. It’s called a bench scraper/dough cutter. You’re using it properly! 😉

  9. Thank you for the recipe card U0001f603I gotta try to make these for my hubby

  10. I love how you use the “by feel” on adding flour. I use this method when making 200 dozen cinnamon rolls for a Church fundraiser AND pie dough for 20 – 25 apple pies. (Why dirty up the kitchen more than one day). We then freeze the pies uncooked and bake them as needed through the year.

  11. Thank you for sharing! We love rolls so we are definitely going to try 😉

  12. Can you do round rolls with this dough? Or does it have to be crescent rolls?

  13. If you don’t use all the dough, what’s the best way to store the rest?

  14. Sorry to bother you but when will you be doing the paint night again? Have you been doing them and I just haven’t seen. I just loved painting with you guys

  15. I have 5 little helpers too!! My girls are about your girls’ ages.. We’ll have to do these soon!!

  17. I’m in Baltimore and it’s like 90 degrees today so no way outside!

  18. I just caught the end of what you said about the Kitchenaide— do you use that normally?

  19. I love that you let your children help. We makes kolaches with all the girls in my family.

  20. I love how you cut down the dough. Great idea. Easier and faster than what I do.

  21. How long would you cook them if you did dinner rolls in muffin tins?

  22. Do you have a printable recipe? I see the recipe on your blog with pictures.

  23. OMG…. I’m gonna roll some cheese in those and bake em and pack them up for camp. You’re a life saver.
