All-time Favorite Rolls Recipe - so soft, buttery and delicious. It's a family favorite!

Let me brag here for a second… My mom makes THE best rolls in the world!! They are always SO soft and so delicious and are requested by family members and friends all the time!! Although she makes them for our family a few times a year, she ALWAYS makes them for the extended family for Thanksgiving, and they are always devoured in minutes. No joke. Everyone knows that you have to grab at least one right away or you won’t get one. That’s just how good they are. Most people eat them plain or with a little butter, but I like to have them with a little strawberry jam.

These rolls are so good that they’re called Heavenly Rolls. Yup. Pretty much describes what they are – heavenly. I know you may think I’m exaggerating, but I promise I am not. I have yet to make them on my own just yet, but being away from family I may have to give them a go this year because it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without them. This really is the BEST Dinner Roll recipe. ;D

    Those rolls are the yummiest! I think that is the same recipe that my mom gave me and I use and it IS heavenly!!

    xoxo

      Lil' Luna

      They seriously are SO good!! Too funny it’s the same recipe… we’ve used this one for as long as I can remember. 🙂

    Kathe

    Oh my goodness these look so good! I am pinning so that I can give them a try!

    Gina

    Oh my stars- bread is such a weakness for me. Those look so tasty!

    Sharon

    Oh my word, these rolls certainly do look heavenly. And so do all of the side dishes.

      Lil' Luna

      Thanks, Sharon!! I promise if you try the rolls you’ll love them – SO SO SO good!! 😀

    Jackie

    No kneading? I love no-kneading! Makes them even more heavenly. 😉 I’m the designated holiday roll person, so these will come in handy. Thanks.

      Lil' Luna

      No kneading bread recipes are definitely the best. 🙂

    Ela

    Did you mean that we just stir the ingredients using a big spoon and no kneading, please clarify. I’d like to try this on Thanksgiving. Thank you.

      Lil' Luna

      Yes, just stir with the spoon like the directions said. No kneading required. 😉

    Amy Huntley

    So I guess I need to give this a try! xo

      Lil' Luna

      Um, yes. 😉

    JEROME TAYLOR

    THE POTATOES LOOKS YUMMY, BUT WHY ARE THEY ‘FUNERAL POTATOES’?

      Lil' Luna

      I think it’s because it was a common casserole to bring to funerals. ??

      Katherine Cook

      Because we (latter-day saints) make them for a funeral. Fast and easy to make.

    Crystal

    These look amazing!!! I have added this recipe to mine. Can’t wait to try them out! Thanks for sharing your mom’s recipe!!!

      Lil' Luna

      Let me know how they go if you try them out! XO

    Marilyn

    Can I use my Kitchen Aid for mixing or is it better to just use a spoon?

      Lil' Luna

      We’ve never tried this in the Kitchen-Aid and only know it works perfectly when following the directions exactly. If you decide to give it a try with the mixer, let me know and I’ll be sure to make a not of it so others know. 🙂

      Summer

      I have made countless dinner rolls in my mixer. I will be trying these in my Kitchen-Aid too! I’m sure it will be fine 🙂

    Summer

    Wow! How can you not make these rolls after reading the description and seeing the pictures?

    Sandra

    Being a sucker for anything that claims to be “heavenly” (or in the case of beauty products, promise to be age-defying), I’m making these rolls today. I will post them onto my baking board on Pinterest.

      Lil' Luna

      How did they turn out?!?

        Sandra

        They turned out amazing! So addictive… Had a hard time not consuming a dozen by myself. Take a peek on Pinterest at bakergirl204 under My Baking. Forgive the picture, my photography skills are nowhere near as good as yours.

          Lil' Luna

          Just checked your pin!! LOVE it. SO glad they turned out. Wishing I had some right about now!!

    Amy Ward

    I’m bringing rolls for thanksgiving this year and would love to try this recipe instead
    of bringing store bought rolls. I live out-of-state and I’m driving home for the holiday
    so I was wondering how Long it took for the dough to rise? I know stupid question, but
    I wanted to make Sure I’d have enough time to make them once I got there.

    Julie brown

    I made the last week to test out the recipe before thanksgiving. They were awesome! I have a question though. Do you think I could make these and before the oven step, put them in the fridge overnight and then bake in the morning???

      Lil' Luna

      Hi Julie! To be honest, we’ve never done them that way so I’m not for certain. I would look up a similar recipe that does call for refrigerating them and then do that part as that recipe suggests if that makes sense. Wish I could be more help!

      Sandii

      I made my mixed my batch the night before at bedtime, got up in the morning punched down the dough and rolled them up and let them rise someplace warm. They didn’t take long at all to rise the second time. I remember my Grandmother used to make some similar to this and she would make hers the night before all they way but she also popped them right in the oven in the morning, that was why I waited I needed them piping hot later in the day.

    Janel

    These look so good! What type of yeast do you use?

    Stephanie

    I made these tonight, for thanksgiving tomorrow. I’m super excited to try them!

      Lil' Luna

      Let me know how they turn out! Wish I had the time to make them for today – they are SO yummy! 😀

    Rosanna

    I am soooo happy I found your site!!!!!

    I cannot wait to try all your bread recipes…and all your recipes…I am just starting to go through and seriously, I will be stuck on the computer for the whole day….
    What kind of flour are you using for these recipes?
    Rosanna

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you so much, Rosanna. I use regular flour for everything and if it’s a different kind I make notes of it in the recipe. 🙂

        Rosanna

        Hi Kristyn,

        I made them tonight and they were so good!!! My 3 boys and husband loved it. I made 24 rolls last night with sweet potato soup and only 5 are left for breakfast today 🙁 They were looking for more.
        I can’t wait to try your other recipes!

        Rosanna

        Belle

        Sorry but ” regular flour”? What does that mean. Self raising it plain?

    Sandii

    Oh my, I made these for Thanksgiving and I’ve gotten requests to make them again so I’m gonna go whip up a batch…or two!!! Great recipe I think it has already become a family favorite. Thanks!!

    Scheryl

    I am making these as I type, well they are awaiting the rise time. I used the kitchen aide mixer so I am hoping they turn out as I read through the comments no one has said if the mixer worked or not. I also used the regular yeast not the rapid yeast as the recipe did not say one way or the other, but I assume if you have to let it rise for a while it would be the regular yeast, so that is what I used. I also only used 3 cups of all purpose flour as again the recipe did not state which type of flour to use and this does make a difference, and since I did not see any baking power/soda I again assumed this to be all purpose flour. I will try and post the outcome when they are finished but that wont be until hours later from now. I do hope they turn out well..they sure smell good so far..anything Yeast has got to be awesome! Thanks for sharing this with all of us!

      Scheryl

      UPDATE: The rolls turned out wonderful! I used the kitchen aide mixer and wow oh wow these really are heavenly. But I must say…I feel so stuffed like a turkey right now I feel miserable. Hubby said I for sure have to keep on making these…Thanks for the recipe. One tip, depending on your oven you might need to back down that temp to 350 so as to not burn the bottoms. I guess this depends on where you live and how good of an oven you have temp wise that is. 🙂 Enjoy folks, I know I did!

        Lil' Luna

        YAY… love that you made them in the mixer and that they were heavenly. They’re definitely our favorite homedmade rolls. 🙂

        Barbara

        Did you use your dough hook attachment or the paddle on your Kitchen-Aid mixer?

    Dalis

    What’s TB yeast? Is that a specific kind of yeast?

    Thanks!
    — Dalis

      JT

      I need to know, too. Is it the packets? (Yeast is what im referring to) please let me know! Thanks.

      Donna H

      I believe that means Tablespoon of yeast!

      Lil' Luna

      1 Tablespoon of Yeast. 🙂

    Courtney

    I am just wondering how you get that perfect crescent shape?!?! Can you post a tutorial? I would love that. My turned out SO good but don’t have that perfect shape like i’d like. Thanks!

      Lil' Luna

      Next time I’m with my mom I’ll have to take video – she’s the expert on these rolls. 😉

    Michelle

    These directions don’t make a lot of sense. It says to divide the dough in two, but only make one circle to cut 12 pieces?

      Lil' Luna

      You do that twice… the directions state you put 24 in a pan (3 across and 8 down). 🙂

    Jenni

    I love this recipe! I’ve made it a few times since I found it on Pinterest. Super easy and delicious. Thank you!!!

      Lil' Luna

      Thanks for stopping by, Jenni! Comments like yours make my day. These our definitely our favorite rolls. Always so soft and delicious, especially when they’re fresh from the oven. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a great week!

    Those rolls to look Heavenly! Pinned!

    lea heath

    These are the same rolls my grandma has made for years…they are so delicious, and always gone way too fast. Makes me want to make a batch now!

      Lil' Luna

      Aren’t they the best?! I crave them ALL the time. 🙂

    Elizabeth

    Quick Questions: when you say 3-4 cups flour, do you mean 3 to 4 cups of flour or 3/4 three fourths of a cup of flour…..and how much time in total do you need to make these, including rising times?

    Leina

    Hi! This looks delicious! I can’t wait to try these for Thanksgiving! Quick question, #4 and #8 it says to cover with a tea towel and let raise for a few hours. Soooo, you do this process twice?? Just want to double check. Thanks!

    Jamie

    These are delicious!!! I am making them right right now. I am bringing them to Thanksgiving tomorrow. I was just wondering what type of butter do you use? Unsalted or Salted? I think i used the Country Crock salted butter last time. These are Amazing though!! A new recipe to be added to my cookbook of recipes. Thank you!

      Lil' Luna

      SO glad you like it. I usually use unsalted with baking, but salted butter still works as well. Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Aurelia

    Hi,
    Just wondering could you make thiese rolls into balls instead of crescents ?
    Also it says bake a 375 is that fareneights ?
    I am in australia and have a convection oven do you know how much i need to put it at ?
    Cannot wait to try them for chrismas this is going to be my daughters first chrismas and i am so excited i want it to be perfect and there rolls sure look perfect to me 😀

    Christine Warren

    My daughter and I made these the other day for Thanksgiving and they were a huge hit!!!! They were almost flaky like a croissant- absolutely delish!!! I did use my kitchen aid mixer but made sure not to over mix the dough. Definitely a keeper recipe!!!!

    Patti

    These look amazing! Can the dough set overnight in the refrigerator?

    Wendy

    I made them and they are si good. Thank you for sharing.

      Lil' Luna

      So glad they turned out! They’re definitely a family favorite. 😉

      Paige

      Hi did you use strong bread flour for this recipe?thanks

    Vi

    Hi there thank you for the recipe I am making these now and am a bit confused on one step. Do they need to rise two separate times totaling about 4 hours or just once after it’s all mixed? Thank you for your help I hope it’s not twice or we will have a very late dinner tonight lol

      Teri

      I think it’s rising twice for a couple hours each time throughout the process, not 4 hours all at once.

    Aryana

    how many does this eecipe make? Thanks in advance!

    Aryana

    How many rolls does this recipe make? I guess its 12 but still need to confirm. Thanks in advance!

    Ursula

    Hi Luna;do i have to knead this sticky dough or just combine the flour into the egg yeast muxture?I want to make these rolls.

    Paige

    Hi there what type of flour are you using?is it strong white/plain/self raising? Thanks x

    Mary

    what does TB mean for the yeast?

    Leigh

    Could you clarify the 3-4 cups of flour? Is that 3 or 4 whole cups or 3/4 of a cup?

    Kim

    Loved these. Yeast stuff doesn’t always work out for me, but this sure did! Super easy, but next time I’ll start making them more around 10 or 11 am to go with our supper. couldn’t believe how much they are like a crescent roll, only better!
    I also didn’t have that big pan, so I put 8 rolls in a 8×8 pan and the rest in a 9×13. Still perfect!

    Peggy

    The rolls turned out looking really great. They were soft and fluffy. However, it tasted very much like alcohol or perhaps yeasty. I felt that it was almost beer like in taste. Could it be that the bread was over-proofed? Thanks!

      Peggy

      Do you also happen to know if it is safe to consume?

        Peggy

        okay, I am obviously not the baker, but I did try it again. This time, I made sure not to let it proof for too long. The taste was great, but I was not able to bake the rolls evenly. Is this an issue with spacing? I did not have as large a pan. Thank you for putting up with all of my elementary questions!

          Lil' Luna

          Hi Peggy – no worries at all. I’m sorry you had any issues. It does depend on the pan, how many you put in there and how big you made your rolls. Do they look pretty similar to the pictures in this post?

    Barbara

    I have never made rolls in my life, l have made a lot of other things. I am going to try these this weekend. My husband loves roll so I am doing this of him. Wish me luck!!! They sound great and by all the comments from the people who have made them, they must to be good.

    Kathy

    What is 1TB of yeast in measurements?

    Tally

    Oh yum! thanks

    Nanda win

    I already made this rolls several times and the whole family love it. Thank you.

      Lil' Luna

      Aren’t they the best!! Glad your family loves them, like we do!

    Mary

    What is TB yeast?

      Lil' Luna

      It’s just a tablespoon of yeast:) I hope you try these and love them as much as we do!!

    Sewbear

    Could this recipe be made using the “dough” cycle on a bread machine? I’ve had pretty good success with other bread, bun recipes with making the dough in my machine and wondering if this one would turn out good results.

      Lil' Luna

      I haven’t tried it using a bread machine. I know my mom does the old fashioned way-her hands:) You could give it a try in there…I’d love to know how they turn out!

        Sewbear

        Couldn’t wait to try some – so did, they turned out fantastic and can see these will be hard to leave alone!! I used yeast for bread machine plus bread machine flour. Mine takes all the “wet” ingredients first (I combined the warm milk, oil, sugar, eggs first and put in – also the salt since I’ve been told don’t let the salt and yeast “touch”!) I used 4c. flour and the yeast but skipped adding the 1st 1/4c. water with sugar, as you don’t have to dissolve the yeast when using the bread machine and this dough is wet enough without it. I use my dough cycle which is 1 1/2 hrs for my machine. The dough turned out great and easy to work with. After shaping rolls I let rise covered in my “barely warmed” oven for 1 1/2 hrs. then baked for 15 min in my oven. We love them! This dough would probably work well “shaped” for other things too…will have to experiment!

          Lil' Luna

          That is so great to know!! Thank you so much for sharing that information! They are very hard to resist!! Let the experimenting begin:)

    Nikki

    Hello, this is going to be my attempt ever at making bread just wondering what type of flour I use, is it self raising it all purpose plain flour?

    Stacee

    can you freeze the dough and bake later.

      Lil' Luna

      I haven’t tried, but I bet you could? Most things freeze well and bake well, so I’d love to know if you try it!

    Lin

    Can the heavenly roll be refrigerated then last rise before baking?

      Lil' Luna

      I honestly haven’t done that, so I’m not sure. I make them and go from start to finish. Has anyone done that??

    Kara

    Hi! I can not wait to try these! Do you use regular yeast or rapid/quick rise? I was wondering if I I need to adapt the recipe if I use rapid rise yeast? Thanks so much!

      Lil' Luna

      I always use the rapid/quick rise yeast. You could use what you like or what you’re used to, that’s just what I like. Hope that helps!! Thanks!

        Kara

        I have made these several times now, and they are AMAZING! Heavenly is the perfect description. 🙂 Thank you for a fantastic recipe!!

    Janeg

    I can’t figure out how to cut the dough: “Cut circles with a pizza cutter into 12 pieces (like a pizza). Roll from rounded edge to the point to make a crescent roll. Place into a greased pan (we use an 11 x16 metal pan and do 3 across and 8 rows down)”
    Oh I just figured it out — I think if you say cut like a pizza into triangles it makes it more clear.
    Thanks!

      sallyz

      yes, that does make more sense, I was picturing cutting out circles and then rolling them into a triangle shape, seemed like a lot of work. thanks for the clarification Janeg!!!

    Karen

    Hi, I have a question. Can I make the dough the night before and just bake in the morning? At what step do I stop and resume the next day? Thank you so much. I’d like to make these for Thanksgiving.

      Lil' Luna

      I personally haven’t tried, so I wish I knew for sure. If I were to freeze them, I’d probably freeze them once you have formed them into the crescent rolls, before you bake them. Hope that helps! Good luck!

    Jason

    I’ve been making these rolls (this recipe) for more than a year now. They are always a big hit. I made 8 dozen for Thanksgiving and froze them. I have used A-P and high-gluten flours but use only high gluten now, the difference is very noticeable. The rolls are great if formed and immediately frozen. I take them out a couple hours early to let them proof/rise to about double in size. I bake them only at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. This is a very soft , rich dough and is best mixed by hand. An electric mixer or bread maker can be used but it really doesn’t need to be worked that much. Once all 3 cups of flour are incorporated (no flour is visible) it can be put in a bowl, covered and left to rise.
    I’m curious how others make the 12 triangles consistent. I found a 18″x24″ plastic at a kitchen store, made to roll out pie dough, etc. it has several concentric circles, one is 12″ in diameter. A You-tube video for dividing a circle into 12 triangles, helped me lay it out on the plastic. Using a Sharpie I made 12 dots on the circle. Now I roll out the dough, brush on the butter, and use a pizza cutter to make all 12 pieces identical. Sorry to be long-winded, but I’ve had a LOT of fun with it.

      Lil' Luna

      Thanks so much for sharing that!! I hope it helps some interested in making this recipe!! I’m so glad they’re a hit 🙂

      sallyz

      Jason, did you only use a total of 3 cups of flour or are you implying that “once the additional 3 cups are incorporated,” after the first cup is stirred with the wet ingredients?

    Shirin

    Hi! I made your heavenly rolls, they were great. Thank you so much for the recipe they are easy too.

      Lil' Luna

      I’m so glad you liked them!! Thank you for letting me know!

    Lisa

    Could you put dice bacon anf cheese then roll them then cook will it work ?. Ty

      Mags in Rosarito

      That sounds good too

      Lil' Luna

      I haven’t tried! I don’t see why not 🙂 Let me know if you try, I’d love to know! Thank you!

    Mags in Rosarito

    Think I’ll try using this recipe to make some garlic cheese rolls by adding garlic, herbs & shredded cheese after I brush on the butter before I cut & roll them

      Lil' Luna

      That sounds wonderful!! Thanks for sharing and I hope you like them!

    Sandy

    I’ve been trying out roll recipes for the past few months in search of the perfect recipe, and these rolls are the BEST!!! I recently made these rolls for a couple of pot luck dinners and many people commented how good they were. A couple of people even told me they were the best rolls they had in their life (and they were older folks.)

      Lil' Luna

      Yay!!! Aren’t they the best?! Thank you so much for sharing and for giving the recipe a try! 🙂

    Alice

    Great recipe! I threw all the ingredients into the bread maker — wet ingredients first and using 5 cups of flour — and the dough turned out perfectly!

      Lil' Luna

      Yay 🙂 Thank you for trying it and I’m so glad it turned out perfectly!

    Evelyn Malo

    Please help , will this work with almond flower?

      Lil' Luna

      I have never used almond flour, so honestly not sure? If you have used it before in bread, then it should be ok? I’m sorry, I’m not much help..I need to try using almond flour.

    anne

    i know i sound stupid asking this Q but im a beginner.. forgive me.. 🙁 but what kind of flour did you use? all purpose flour or the bread flour?

      Lil' Luna

      Not a stupid question at all! I just used all-purpose flour. Good luck!! Thank you 🙂

    Jeanette Marshman

    Wow sure is beautiful and looking great will be doing some cooking here I’ve been writing them out into a home made recipe Book for my Grandaughter, excellent recipes easy to make and tasty family will love them. Thank You

      Lil' Luna

      You are so welcome!! Thank you for trying them and thank your student for me 🙂

    Rachel

    Does it need active or instant yeast?

    Disha

    Hi, it looks really yum. Plan to make them right away. Just a quick question, do we add 3 or 4 cups of flour ? Thanks a lot for sharing the recipe 😊

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you! I always start with 3, then I may need to add a little more as I go. It just depends on where you live, the humidity, etc. If they are way to sticky, then you’ll need to add more. Hope that helps 🙂 Good luck!

    Julia

    What kind of yeast?

      Lil' Luna

      I always use instant 🙂 Hope that helps and hope you enjoy the rolls 🙂 Thank you!

    Sadiyya Motara

    Hi there,
    Tried this recipe today, and it came out Devine! By far, the best homemade rolls recipe I’ve tried… thanks a lot for the recipe

      Lil' Luna

      That makes me so happy to hear!! I’m so glad you tried it! Thank you!

    Fynever

    The most loving and yummy looking bread I ever seen.

      Lil' Luna

      LOL..it is!! You’ll need to try it 🙂 Thanks so much!!

    Marie

    Can i ask if its a plain flour or a self raising? Thanks

      Lil' Luna

      It is just regular all-purpose flour. Thanks so much for stopping by!!

    Marilyn DeMeo

    I made the heavenly rolls recipe yesterday and they were unbelievable! My question is can they be frozen and then thawed and heated and still taste as good? I want to make them for Easter and want to make them a few days early….

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you for trying them! We never have any left to freeze, but they should. Let me know what you think, if you do. Thank you!

    Ummm…. did you double the recipe? Instructions say to cut into 12 pie shaped pieces but you put 24 in the pan.

    Sachi

    Hello Sis!
    Thank you for the recipe! I tried this last Saturday and I am extremely sad that it turned out so bad. My dough never rose even if I waited for so many hours for the first part and the second part when they are in the pan. Also, the yeast didn’t bubble as expected based on your first instruction. I baked them and they turned out hard and didnt rise as well but the insides were uncooked.Quite sad that it didn’t turn out well but your bread looks soo amazing!

      Lil' Luna

      Oh, I am so sorry it didn’t turn out. I’m trying to think of why it wouldn’t have. I’m glad you gave it a try though 🙂 Hope you’ll try again!

    Jo

    Hi there, I really love the recipe and would like to try it, but what type of flour does the recipe require? It states two different measurements for flour. Kindly clarify. Best wishes, Jo.

      Lil' Luna

      It’s all purpose flour and it’s different measurements for different steps in the instructions. Hope that helps. Good luck!

    Hello!! can I use almond milk or it has to be cow milk? I can’t wait to give them a try! Thank you in advance!

      Lil' Luna

      I haven’t tried using almond milk. It might change the flavor a little, but you could always try. I’d love to know how it comes out. Thanks!

    Joan

    These look like they would be Great to make little Pigs in a Blanket !!! Just cook up your little smokey breakfast links or the little smoked sausages for parties. Makes me hungry just thinking about what other goodies to roll up in them !!! And, how much Better this dough would be over that stuff in a tube !
    👅 Yum !!!
    Drool !!!

      Lil' Luna

      Haha!! Yes, those would be great! Let me know if you try them..Thank you!

        Ellison Adams

        I tried this recipe today but I used one pack of instant yeast and just mixed all the ingredients together (Less work). The rolls were wonderful. I had to restrain myself from excessive indulgence.

          Lil' Luna

          I am so glad to hear that!! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

          coreena

          Do u still add the sugar with the instant yeast?

    Mindy

    Can these be made up to step #8, then put in the refrigerator over night and baked the next day?

      Lil' Luna

      I have always done it in the same day. I wouldn’t know if that would change the outcome. I’m sorry. You could always give it a try??

    Karen

    Can you double the recipe or should i make 2 batches?

      Lil' Luna

      You could double it. I hope you like them, as much as we do! Thank you!

    emeliecanoy

    Stephanie

    Has anyone tried this recipe with gluten free flour?

    Linh Lee

    I’ve made these rolls lately and brought to office for my colleagues. Yeah.. devoured in minutes!!!
    By the way, is bread flour better than all purpose flour? 😁

      Lil' Luna

      That’s awesome!! I can see why..they are the best! Thanks for sharing!

    Tracy

    Can you pleas clarify what kind of flour is used ? All purpose or self rising ?

    Candice

    Can I use coconut milk instead of regular milk?

      Lil' Luna

      I personally haven’t tried that. Not sure how it would change it? I don’t use coconut milk that often. Anyone else try it?

    Vhey lopez

    Hi! May i know what kind of flour you are using for this heavenly rolls! ☺thanks

      Lil' Luna

      I use all purpose 🙂 I hope you try these and like them! Thanks!

    Sadaf

    Hello
    The rolls looks great. Will surely try them. Just want to clarify which yeast have been used? Active or dry? There are different types, right?

      Lil' Luna

      Yes, there are different kinds. I use the instant, active yeast. Hope that helps and hope you’ll give this recipe a try 🙂 Thanks so much!

    Joanne

    These rolls literally are heaven! And to make them even better they are VERY easy to make. I love bread and these are just amazing!!!!!!! I will be making them a lot!

      Lil' Luna

      Yay!!! I’m so happy to hear that! Thank you for sharing 🙂

    Toey Srisangar

      Lil' Luna

      YAY!! They’re definitely a family favorite!

        Dawn

        My son is allergic to dairy….has anyone tried substituting the milk and butter? It looks yummy 😉

          Lil' Luna

          I’m sorry, I haven’t. Hopefully, someone else has & will share 🙂

    Sonny Lorica Padua

    What does 1 TB yeast means? What type of yeast to use and flour?

      Lil' Luna

      1 TB is 1 tablespoon 🙂 I used regular all purpose flour and active dry yeast. Hope that helps you!

    Cindy A Jenkins

    Kristyn, my daughter told me about your Basic Homemade Bread recipe and I will be giving it a try this week. I come from a family of 12 kids and my Mom baked 4 loaves of bread 7 days a week for many years. I am also a lover of hot homemade bread and I have taught my daughters how to do it too. Here is another thought for you, I take a zucchini and peel it and then remove the seeds if it is a big one, and then I run it through the blender to liquefy it and I add it in place of half of the liquid I use in the bread recipe and it make good fluffy white bread too. You don’t taste it in the bread and the bread come out as white as regular white bread. Try it sometime and see what you think. The only difference I find is that it takes a little less flour than the recipe calls for.

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you for sharing that! I will have to try! Let me know what you think of these rolls 🙂 Thank you so much!

    bill

    Looks Delicious my wife dont like to much bread and would be wonderful for her. Is it bread flour you use ?

      Lil' Luna

      It really is so good! I just used all purpose flour 🙂 Hope she’ll like them!

    bill

    sorry again thanks for the quick reply but are the cup sizes US and will they freeze

    Court

    So I’d like to try this as a loaf of bread instead of rolls. How much would I need to change the ingredients? Double them? Just roll the dough in to a loaf instead of sectioning off into rolls?

      Lil' Luna

      I haven’t tried. I wish I knew. I’m not an expert with bread yet or at least changing recipes to make them into loaves, so I wouldn’t want to tell you the wrong thing. I’m sorry. I’ll have to play around with the recipe & find out!

    Rita Pressley

    Do you use self rising flour or plain

      Lil' Luna

      Just plain all-purpose flour 🙂 Hope you like them!!! They are seriously the best!

    Yasmine

    How much is 3-4 cups of flour?

    Linda Shaver

    For sure I will make these. I’ve been cooking for many years and this looks heavenly. Thank you.

    Angie Mull

    I love these rolls

      Lil' Luna

      We love them, too! I’m glad you do! Thank you for letting me know!

    Patricia

    Do you use active or instant yeast?

    Kathleen

    i make most with a bread machine does that make a difference? thanks

    Patsy Thrift

    Are you using regular yeast or rapid rise yeast? These look wonderful! Can’t wait to try them!

      Kristyn Merkley

      I used rapid rise 🙂 These are seriously the best rolls ever! Let me know what you think 🙂

    Mirvat Takhah

    Delicious

    Amy

    I can’t wait to make your mom’s rolls tomorrow! Gotta practice now so they’re prefect come holidays!

    Keralea

    Has anyone had any success making these in advance and freezing them? I want to make them for a party in a few weeks but I’ll be short on time on the day.

    daisy m. almacen

    i needlasagna recipe..tnx to share your ingredients its big tnx..

    Judy

    I think I types the wrong email address by mistake. The one below is correct.

    Kathleen

    I made using my bread machine on dough cycle as i usually make dough. I found using my glass Pyrex pizza pan as a template was also helpful.

    I will add a touch more sweetener for next batch as the boys here like then a bit sweeter but am so happy learned how to make the cresent shape Happy holiday season

    Linda

    All breads and other recipes looks yummy. I wish i could bake them perfectly!

    Sue

    Can we freeze these? If so, how? Before baking or after?

      Kristyn Merkley

      I haven’t personally tried. I like to make mine when I know we’ll be eating them or bringing them somewhere. But, I would think maybe before you bake them.

    Jordan

    I’m curious to know if this is all done by hand or with a mixer or if it matters lol, and if you can give me a roundabout number for the “few hours” it has to sit. I really want to make them and have them turn out perfect

      Kristyn Merkley

      We like to do it by hand around here, but you can do it however you like 🙂 And, a few hours, meaning 3 hours or until it’s doubled in size. Hope that helps & hope you like these as much as we do!

    Marie

    What is TB yeast? is that tablespoon?

    Sarah

    These look amazing! How long do you actually let them rise?

      Kristyn Merkley

      They are the best!! Just depending on the humidity, weather, temp…but usually it’s around 3 hours. Just keep checking..when they have doubled in size, they are done.

    sharon

    can u make rolls from it

      Kristyn Merkley

      What kind of rolls? I’ve only stuck to these kind, with this recipe, so possibly 🙂

    Sandra McLaws

    How many hours before mealtime do you start these rolls so they are ready for dinner? Thx.

      Kristyn Merkley

      I like to start them in the morning. As they need to rise for a few hours, twice. You could start them no later than 10:00 & have them warm & fresh.

    Jamie

    How many rolls does this make? I want to make sure im making enough
    Thanks!

    Amy

    I’ve made bread just a few times. Can I start these tomorrow. Let rise then roll out and let them sit overnight then bake thanksgiving morning?

    Lori Andrews

    These rolls were amazing! Easy to make and just melt in your mouth delicious! The only thing I did different than the original recipe was use bread flour in place of the regular flour as that’s what I had on hand!
