Spoon rolls are easy to make and so good.

Old Fashioned Spoon Rolls

These rolls go with anything and any meal. I have made these spoon rolls for years but had forgotten all about them until I ran across my recipe recently.  The dough will keep up to a week in the refrigerator and you can reheat the rolls or freeze them.

Spoon rolls are an old-fashioned, classic recipe.

1 package active dry yeast (1/4 ounce)

2 cups warm water

2 tablespoons white granulated sugar

1 egg, beaten

4 cups self-rising flour

1 1/2 sticks butter or 12 tablespoons or 3/4 cup, melted.

Empty package of yeast into a large mixing bowl.  Add the 2 cups warm water, 2 tablespoons sugar, beaten egg, 4 cups self-rising flour and melted butter mixing after each addition.  You can do this with a mixer or a spoon.  CAUTION: If your melted butter is hot, let it cool to warm before adding so as not to kill the yeast in the dough. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray.  Fill cups 1/2 to 3/4 full. Let dough rise in pan about 20 minutes. (It won’t rise a lot). Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 – 35 minutes checking for doneness as ovens vary.  Makes about 18 muffins.  Enjoy!

Tips on Yeast: One 1/4 (0.25) ounce packet of dry equals 2+1/4 teaspoons.  Always use warm water to activate yeast, hot water will kill it. There are 2 kinds of yeast.  Dry active yeast must be activated in warm water but instant yeast can be added directly to your recipe. Always check the expiration date on the packet.
