This recipe came from an old addition (2008) of Southern Living. I have never had good luck with yeast breads, but this recipe is very easy to follow and they turn out great!

So many people do not cook or bake from scratch nowadays, but I still prefer to work from scratch if the recipe isn't too complicated.

Enjoy!

How to Make Quick Yeast Rolls

Step-by-Step

  1. Stir together yeast, 1/4 c warm water, and 1 t. sugar in a 2 cup glass measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Beat 2 T. sugar, softened butter, and salt at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy. Add egg, milk, and yeast mixture, beating until blended. Gradually add flour, beating at low speed until smooth. Turn dough onto a well floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic (2-3 minutes). Place in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top.
  3. Cover and let rise in a warm place(85), free from drafts, 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
  4. Preheat oven to 400. Punch dough down; turn dough out onto a floured surface. Divide dough into 24 pieces; shape into balls. Place in 2 greased 9: square pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85), free from drafts, 15 minutes.
  5. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until golden. Brush tops with melted butter, and serve immediately.
