Out Of This World Rolls are light and buttery and sure to please everyone. Oh, the smell of rolls baking in the oven just says home. I remember when we were trying to sell our home that the realtor told us, “if you want to sell your home, bake some bread”.
The aroma of freshly baked bread gives the occupants a sense of belonging and makes one want to sit down and enjoy a warm, fresh homemade roll. It makes them feel like they are at home. You could even add some honey or yummy freezer jam; raspberry is our favorite. For Thanksgiving or any occasion try some Out Of This World Rolls; they are sure to please.
What Ingredients Do I Need For Out Of This World Rolls?
- Active dry yeast
How Do I Make Out Of This World Rolls?
- In a medium container, place warm water, yeast and 1 tsp sugar. This activates the yeast.
- Then in a large bowl, combine melted butter, 1/2 cup sugar, beaten eggs, 1 cup water and salt.
- Stir in activated yeast mixture and 2 1/2 cups flour. Mix on low until smooth and well blended.
- Add the remaining flour to make a soft dough. Mix for about 5 minutes.
- Cover the dough and allow it to rise for 1 hour, in a warm dry place until doubled in size.
- Punch down, cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.
- Three hours before baking, remove the dough and divide into two equal pieces.
- Roll the dough into a circle about 12-14″ wide and about 1/2″ thick. Cut the dough with a pizza cutter into 12 equal pieces.
- Take the larger end and roll the dough up, this will look like a croissant.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
- Butter the rolls with a pastry brush as soon as they come out of the oven.
I remember when I was little and my mom would make rolls, sometimes she would let me have a little chunk of the bread dough. We thought it was a treat. Oh my word, what was I thinking, now if I tasted raw bread dough I just might loose it!
However, it is a total different story when the dough is cooked! I love these out of this world rolls, they are light, fluffy and buttery. Can you ask for anything better? Sometimes, I can hardly wait long enough for them to cook.
Can I Freeze the Dough and Bake my Out Of This World Rolls Later?
- Yes, roll dough can be frozen to be used later.
- Shape your kneaded yeast dough into rolls; (don’t let the dough rise before you freeze them).
- Place them in a pan and freeze them.
- Once they are frozen, bag them so they are airtight and put them in the freezer.
Another memory of growing up was when I would sometimes come home from school and my mother had baked bread, the smell of the house, would make anyone jump for joy. We would have a slice of bread with some butter on it and then we would head out to do the chores.
I think that I have told you before, when we grew up, my mother worked out of the home and so a lot of times we would simply eat a can of Campbell’s soup for dinner. My kids hardly know what Campbell’s soup is. I know that I have been blessed that I have been able to have a job in my home.
I do hair in my home, and sometimes it is a blessing and sometimes it is a curse. Once in awhile you will have someone call you and want their hair done right now. They think that you are home waiting for them to call! Ha ha. That is just not the way it is when you have 5 kids.
How Long Can I Store Fresh Rolls?
- Place them in a zippered storage bag.
- Dinner rolls should keep 5-7 days at room temperature.
I am very glad that my husband has had a good job and that I have been able to stay at home with my kids. I have wonderful kids and they are all a blessing in my life. What are some of the blessings in your life?
Even the other day I was thinking how blessed we are to have fingernails, and elbows. What if your arm didn’t bend? I love that we have toes that give us balance and that we have hair on our head to makes us look more beautiful or handsome. Or even if you do not have hair you are still beautiful or handsome, but sometimes we take this for granted.

Tips and Tricks for Out of this World Rolls:
- I keep my yeast that is not being used, in the freezer, as it helps it keep its freshness.
