Easy Yeast Rolls - Paula Deen Recipe

Posted by Lori:

This is the easiest yeast roll recipe I have ever used, and the best tasting quick one, too.  My favorite rolls take several hours to make, but this will do for spur of the moment homemade bread. 

I doubled the recipe for our family and to have left overs, and even used one cup of a whole wheat biscuit mix.  The rolls were delicious!

Recipe courtesy Paula Deen
Serves: 15 rolls

1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast
3/4 cup warm water (98 to 105 degrees F)
2 1/2 cups plus 1/2 to 1 cup prepared biscuit mix
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Dissolve the yeast in the water. Put the 2 1/2 cups of biscuit mix in a large bowl; stir in the sugar. Add the yeast mixture, stirring vigorously. Sprinkle the work surface generously with the remaining 1/2 to 1 cup biscuit mix.

Turn the dough out onto the surface and knead well, 15 to 20 times. Shape the dough as desired. (I shape heaping tablespoons of dough into balls). Place on a lightly greased baking sheet, cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.

Just before putting into oven, brush rolls with melted butter.  Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.  Brush the rolls again with melted butter while they are hot.
