Quick Rising Yeast Rolls Instructions

Combine milk, sugar, salt and heat just until warm and butter is melted. Dissolve yeast in the warm water and stir until smooth. Combine milk mixture with flour and mix with spoon. Add the yeast and water and continue mixing until you have all ingredients incorporated. Cover with towel and let rise for 20 minutes in a warm spot.. (I turn on the oven to warm and set mixture covered on top of the stove with the light above the stove on.) Punch down after the 20 minutes and turn out on floured surface. Work in a little flour if needed. Pinch off pieces and roll into balls about the size of a walnut. Spray round cake pans, pie pans or whatever you use with cooking spray. Let the dough rise in the pans another 20 minutes. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes until brown on top. (I brush mine with melted butter the last 10 minutes of cooking but this is not necessary). Makes about 36 rolls. Enjoy!

  1. I am not sure what I did wrong- I mixed exactly like your recipe but my dough was way more wet than yours. I went ahead and let them rise but when I went to put it on the counter it was still super wet and I had to add a good bit of flour just to keep it from sticking to my hands. Any clue where I went wrong? I was super careful to be exact with my measurements.
    They turned out beautiful but were a little tough from all the handling. Going to attempt again soon.

      I am not sure what you did wrong either, Johanna. Maybe, just a difference in the flour texture or something. I would just add less milk next time and mix until it comes together like the photo. I am glad they turned out and hope you have better luck next time.

  2. Gonna top them with butter

  3. Can these be frozen after baking ??
