  • PREP

    40 mins

    1 hr 45 mins


  1. Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large mixer bowl. Heat water, oil and 2 tablespoons butter until very warm (120 to 130 degrees F). Add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 5 to 7 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
  2. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces; shape into balls. Place in a greased 10-inch iron skillet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and brush over rolls.
  3. Bake in preheated 375 degrees F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan; brush with any remaining butter, if desired. Serve warm.

I tried this recipe but just half because I only had one packet of yeast. It came out GREAT!!! My oldest son said it was better than at our favorite buffet restaurant so now I'm beaming! This is a keeper!

My husband and I loved these. They came out just right, I wish I had taken a picture they were so pretty. To us they came very close to a roll we used to get at a local restaurant, now closed. I will be making these again and again!!
