Day 8:  Helen’s Homemade Butter Rolls

Butter Rolls

2 1/4   ounces  active dry yeast — *see Note

1 1/2  cups  sugar

2   tablespoons  sugar

2  cups  warm water

1 1/2  cups  butter — melted

6  large  eggs — lightly beaten

1 1/2      teaspoons  salt

8 1/2    cups  all-purpose flour


Stir together yeast, 2 T. sugar, and 2 C. warm water in a 4-cup glass measuring cup.  Let stand 5 minutes for yeast to dissolve.

Stir together yeast mixture, 1 1/2 C. sugar, and butter in a large bowl; stirring in egg and salt.  Gradually stir in enough flour to make a soft dough.  Cover and chill 8 hours.

Divide dough into 4 equal portions.  Turn each portion out onto a lightly-floured surface and roll into a 12-inch circle.  Cut each circle into 12 wedges.

Roll up each wedge, starting at wide end; place on greased baking sheets.  Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, two hours or until doubled in bulk.

Bake at 400° for 10 minutes.


*Yeast equivalents:  2 1/4 ounce active dry yeast = about 1 1/2 t. instant yeast.  1 packet yeast = 1 cake compressed yeast (one packet to 3 C. flour).
