Grandma Redenius' Sweet Rolls

Peggy Bockler


This recipe is from my Grandma Emma Redenius. Grandma always had sweet rolls made when we came to visit. She probably made a batch of these a week. I use some of the dough for sweet rolls and some for dinner rolls.

How to Make Grandma Redenius' Sweet Rolls


  1. Mix milk, sugar, butter and salt together and let cool.
  2. In a separate small bowl, pour the warm/hot water over the yeast. Let stand for a few minutes then mix in with the above mixture. Beat the eggs and blend in with the batter. Add 4 cups of flour and mix with a spoon. Mix in 3 more cups of flour. Knead well.
  3. Put melted butter on sides of bowl and top and sides of dough. Let rise 2 hours.
  4. Put 1/2 of the dough on a floured surface and smooth out to 1/2 or 1/4 inch thick. Melt butter and brush on top of dough. Sprinkle liberally with sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and cut into 1 inch sections and place in pans. I usually use half the dough for sweet rolls and the other half I shape into dinner rolls and put into pans. Let rise again 1 hour. Then bake at 375º for 10-15 minutes. Frost when cool.
