If you're going to make homemade rolls for Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter these are the rolls for you. They are always a hit and are especially delicious served with homemade berry jams or honey butter.
overnight rolls (my friend Jannika M. from my days in St. Louis)
Stir and set aside:
2 cups warm water
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
2 tablespoon sugar
In a heavy mixer beat together the following:
1 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 well-beaten eggs
6 cups flour
Refrigerate dough overnight or for at least four hours.
Next day, make three balls equal in size and roll each round out. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 12 pieces (I always cut mine into 8) and roll like a crescent roll.
Place on parchment paper- covered cookie sheets and cover with clean dish towels. Let rise for a few hours. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
