  • 4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 cups whole milk scalded and cooled to lukewarm
  • 3 Tablespoons salted butter melted and cooled slightly
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 7 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt


  • Dissolve yeast in warm water in the bowl of a stand mixer. Once yeast has dissolved and proofed, add milk, sugar and 2 cups of flour.
    Beat thoroughly on medium speed. Let stand until foamy (about 2 minutes). Add melted butter, eggs and salt. Beat well.
  • Add in another 5 cups of flour, slowly, to form a soft dough. *NOTE* Do not use more than 7 cups of flour total. The dough will be very soft and somewhat sticky, you may think it needs more flour, but it does not.
  • Knead dough on a floured surface, until it is smooth and satiny. ( I kneaded mine in my stand mixer with the dough hooks, for about 4 minutes) If you knead it with your hands, you will need to grease up your hands with some cooking spray and a bit of flour, to help the dough from not sticking to your hands.
    Once kneaded, place dough into a large, greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
  • Once dough has risen, remove from bowl and place onto a lightly floured surface. Lightly flour a rolling pin, and roll dough out into a large rectangle, that is a 1/2 inch thick. Carefully handling dough, fold the rectangle in half, to form a smaller, 1 inch thick rectangle. Using a pizza cutter, slice dough into 24 large squares or 48 small squares. Place squares onto greased cookie sheets. Cover, and let rise again, until doubled in size.
  • Bake rolls at 350 degrees F. for 16 to 18 minutes, or until lightly golden on top. Remove from oven, and immediately brush tops with butter. Serve rolls with Cinnamon Honey Butter.
  • Cinnamon Honey Butter: Mix together 1/2 cup salted butter, 1/4 cup honey and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Store covered in fridge to chill before serving.
