Name: Yeast Rolls
Prep: 10 minutes
Rise: 2 hours 20 minutes

Cook: 15 minutes
Total Prep: 2 hours 45 minutes
Servings: 18



1package active dry yeast
1/4 cup lukewarm water
3/4 cup lukewarm milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/4 cup margarine or butter
3 1/2 to 3 3/4 cups flour


Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl. Stir in milk, sugar, salt, egg, butter, and 2 cups of flour.

Beat until smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make the dough easy to handle. 

Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic – about 5 minutes.

Oil a large bowl and place the dough in the bowl. Turn once to coat the dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until the dough doubles in size – about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Heat oven to 400 F. Prepare muffin tins using oil, butter, or shortening. 

Punch down the dough. Pinch off ping pong ball-sized pieces of dough and roll into balls. Place three into each muffin cup. Cover and let rise for 20 minutes.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
