EASY REFRIGERATOR ROLLS
YEAST-ROLLS - An utterly reliable recipe for yeast rolls.
I believe this recipe started its life on the back of a
Fleischman's Yeast package, but it has been memorized and
modified for about ten years now. It is the most reliable
yeast recipe I've ever seen: it's never failed on me, and it
always does an amazing amount of rising (my family calls
them mushroom rolls).
INGREDIENTS (Makes 24 rolls)
6 1/4 cups
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp dry yeast (each package is about 1 Tbsp)
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups
1/4 cup butter
vegetable shortening or more butter
(1) Combine 2 cups of flour, sugar, salt, and undis-
(2) Heat milk, water, and butter until liquids are
very warm (120-130 deg. F). Add to dry
(3) Beat 2 minutes at medium speed (I've never used an
electric mixer, by the way. Just stir until
things are evenly combined and not terribly
(4) Add egg and 1 cup flour. Beat at high speed 2
minutes. Add enough additional flour to make a
soft dough. This is where the arm muscles get
(5) Grease top of dough (with butter or vegetable
shortening). Cover the bowl and refrigerate it
(6) Divide the dough into 24 equal pieces. Shape them
into balls, and place each in a greased muffin
(7) Cover; let rise in a warm place (75-100 deg. F)
until doubled. This will take between 1 and 1 1/2
hours. Towards the end of the rising period,
preheat the oven to 400 deg. F.
(8) Bake at 400 deg. F for 12 to 15 minutes. Store
the rolls tightly covered-that is, if there are
This is the first really good yeast bread recipe I
discovered when I started making bread in the sixth grade.
Done carefully, it can approach a delicate, cakelike tex-
ture. It doesn't have to be shaped into rolls, of course --
try it in a regular bread pan, or in fancy shapes.
I use Fleischman's dry yeast. I suppose cake yeast can be
used, but it always seemed like a nuisance to me.
Difficulty: easy. Time: 1 hour of work spread over 2 days.
Precision: measure the ingredients.

The only grace I've ever known.
I never tire of legends grown;
We dream too much, and time has flown...."
