Virginia Box Bread

"This recipe for 'melt in your mouth' rolls was given to me over 40 years ago when we lived in the South. My family has been known to devour them as soon as they come out of the oven! Dividing the dough into rolls in the pan is a time-saver."

  1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add eggs, sugar, salt, butter and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours. Punch the dough down. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 13-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Transfer dough to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Using a sharp knife, cut dough into 14 even squares. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes or until golden brown. To serve, separate into rolls.

Because of reading reviewers' "lack of flavor" comments, I changed only one thing: instead of 1 tsp. salt, I put in 1-1/2 tsp. salt. A good basic bread roll. I put most of the dough into an 8x8 ...

I thought that these were pretty good, but like Rae thought cutting the dough was sort of a pain & next time will just form into rolls. My mother & I both commented that this dough would be exc...

These are delicious! I made these as instructed with no changes except a dash of black pepper & switched out 1/4c.AP flour for 1/4c. whole wheat flour. I had no trouble cutting mine in the pan a...

I don't make much bread, and I was really looking forward to this one, thinking it might have an egg-y taste, which I like in bread. It was disappointing. It needed more rise time than the recip...
