How to make it

  • Directions: Add water, 1/4 cup butter, egg, salt, flour, sugar, and yeast to bread machine pan in order suggested by manufacturer.
  • Select dough/manual cycle
  • Meanwhile, put 1/4 cup of remaining butter in baking pan (13x9)
  • Melt butter over low heat
  • Tilt pan to grease bottom.
  • When cycle is complete, remove dough from machine to lightly floured surface.
  • Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thick.
  • With floured 2 3/4 inch round cutter, cut dough into circles.
  • Holding dough circle by edge, dip both sides into melted butter in pan: folding dough in half, using knife in center to create the crease.
  • Arrange folded dough in rows in pan, each nearly touching the other.
  • Knead trimmings together; re-roll dough and cut more rolls
  • Cover and let rise in a warm, draft free place, about 45 minutes or until doubled.
  • Bake in Preheated 400*F oven, 15-18 minutes or until done.
  • Remove pan and let cool on wire rack.
  • Brush rolls with additional melted butter.
  • Makes approx. 12-18 rolls. Each approx 154 calories
  • Note: Do Not use margarine since most contain too much water. I used margarine once and it flattened the rolls.
  • These rolls can be made ahead and frozen. Bake till rolls are blond and not browned. The rolls will sound hollow but will be blond.
  • # Bake at 400° for 5-10 minutes or just until they begin to brown, keeping an eye on them not to allow browning.
  • # Remove from oven and cool in pans for a few minutes.
  • # Remove to racks to cool completely, then place on a tray and put in freezer until firm.
  • # Place in plastic freezer bags and freeze.
  • # To complete cooking, place as many frozen rolls as you need on cookie sheet, and bake at 400° until golden brown, about 6 or 7 minutes.

    We doubled this recipe and made these for 23 people on Christmas Day and I could not save any rolls - they were gone in seconds and the biggest hit next to the standing rib roast!
