  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp active-dry yeast or 2 packages
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour


  • In a large bowl combine warm water with yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar. Set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  • Using your mixer with the dough hook attached, combine butter, sugar, eggs and salt.
  •  Add in the yeast mixture and mix to combine.
  • Add flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing between each cup. When the dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl, you’ve added enough flour. You should need about 4 cups total, give or take a little.
  • Place the dough on a lightly floured clean working surface and knead for a minute or two.
  • Divide the dough into 24 each pieces, then roll each piece into a smooth round ball.
  • Prepare a 13 x 9 inch baking dish by lightly greasing it.
  • Place the dough balls into the pan, leaving equal space between each round ball.
  • Cover the rolls and let them rise for about 60-90 minutes, or until doubled.
  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown.
