My Favorite Rolls

I LOVE bread and rolls are no exception. This is absolutely, hands down the best roll recipe I’ve tried! Working on rolls now, so here is a picture of the rolls rising! These are super soft and buttery….sure to please any crowd!




2/3 cup nonfat dried milk

2 cups warm water

2 TB active dry yeast

2 teaspoons salt

1/4 cup sugar

1/3 cup butter (softened)

1 egg

5 cups bread flour


  • Mix water and powdered milk in your mixing bowl. Sprinkle yeast on top and allow to rest for five minutes.
  • Add in salt, sugar, butter, egg, and 2 cups of the flour. Mix well.
  • Mix in two more cups of flour.
  • Add the fifth cup of flour little by little until dough comes together. I usually end up using the entire cup.
  • The dough will be a bit sticky…do not add more than the 5 cups of flour.
  • Grab a tablespoon of vegetable oil and drizzle over dough. This will keep dough from being so sticky and will also prevent it from drying out.
  • Work dough into a ball in your bowl and cover with saran wrap. Set aside and allow to rise until it doubles in size.¬† Takes 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Roll the dough out into a large rectangle¬† and cut into rectangular pieces.
  • Roll each rectangle into a roll shape.
  • Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and cover with a towel.
  • Let the rolls rise until they are doubled in size.
  • Bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Brush with melted butter when they come out of oven!
