Sweet Rolls recipe

This is a recipe a friend gave to me, and it's DELICIOUS. These rolls are fantastic! They have a sinful amount of butter and sugar and really zero nutritional value, but oh how they are good.


Recipe makes 4 dozen rolls. It can be doubled if you need to make more, though it's not as easily halved you can do it.


2 T yeast 1/4 c. warm water 1/2 c. butter 1 c. water 1/2 c. sugar 1 tsp. salt 3 eggs, well beaten 4 1/2 c. flour 1/2 c. butter, melted
  • Mix yeast and 1/4 c. warm water. Set aside.
  • In a saucepan, melt 1/2 c. butter with 1 c. water, sugar, and salt. Let cool.
  • In a large bowl, beat 3 eggs. Add the yeast mixture and the butter mixture to eggs. Blend.
  • Add the flour in small quantities, mixing as you go. It will create a sticky dough.
  • Let it rise until it doubles in size. Then punch it down.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and refrigerate for 3 hrs. or overnight.
  • Roll out flat and cut into circles or create your own design (I like to do clover rolls--three balls thrown into each compartment of a muffin tin)
  • Dip rolls into butter (optional) and place in a glass baking dish or tray or muffin tin (best to spray with non-stick cooking spray pan if you don't use butter)
  • Let the rolls rise until double in size (a few hours usually).
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned on top.
