  1. In a large bowl, stir yeast, 1/4 cup warm water, and a pinch of sugar.
  2. In another bowl, beat eggs in 1 cup warm water; add oil and salt. Mix egg mixture into yeast, and add sugar. Gradually add flour. Cover with a damp cloth, and allow to stand at room temperature for 1 hour, then place in the refrigerator and allow to rise overnight. This dough is rather sticky, and will raise to at least twice it's size.
  3. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Roll each section out into a circle on a floured board or wax paper. Cut into pizza slice shapes, and roll slices large end to small end. Place on greased flat baking pans, and allow to rise for 2 hours.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 8 minutes.

These were easy to make, but were on the heavy side when finished. I served them straight from the oven. While the flavor was nice, I will not serve them again because of the heaviness.

These rolls are excellent! I doubled the batch and made a ton of them for a big family get together. I loved the fact that you did not need to knead this dough, you just let it rise over night...

Wonderful textured rolls but lacked that buttery flavor we love in our rolls.! The dough was so soft that I could not roll it out and cut it into triangles. So I made balls(these spread out bea...

I've made this twice now. They turned out excellent. I don't agree about adding more flour than the recipe asks for. It is VERY sticky, but that makes them more moist! I didn't follow the re...

I've never made rolls before and I'm usually a disaster with bread recipes. So I was worried about these rolls until the very end. They were fabulous. They looked great, they tasted great and I'...

I have struggled for a while to find a roll recipe that wasn't to difficult and yielded great result. This recipe was all that for me. The rolls were a little sweet, but came out perfectly. T...

These were the most delicous light and fluffy rolls I have ever tasted. Was very easy to make.

I was given several recipes for rolls and they NEVER turned out as good as these. I love this recipe so much and haave shared it with several friends!
