This recipe comes from one of Sara’s roommates. It was a closely guarded secret but Sara managed to obtain it.
- 1/2 to 3/4 cups margarine (I used 3/4 cups butter)
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 2 pkgs dry yeast
- 2 well beaten eggs
- 6-7 cups flour
Melt ½ to ¾ cup margarine in 1 cup boiling water (I used 3/4 cup of butter)
When margarine mixture is melted, pour it over ½ cup sugar and 1 ½ teaspoons salt. Set aside to cool.
Dissolve 2 pkgs dry yeast in 1 cup warm water.
Add two well-beaten eggs to water/margarine mixture. Add yeast water. Add 6-7 cups flour. Knead. Let rise. Punch down and roll out and cut (or pinch off pieces and dip in melted margarine).
Note: I rolled the dough out and cut it with the top of a Pam spray lid. Spray bottom of a baking dish lightly with Pam spray (I used a glass casserole pan–actually two large pans). Place the rolls next to each other so that they are touching. Brush the tops well with melted butter. Cover with saran wrap and let them double in size.
Bake at 325 for about 20 minutes. (I had to bake them for 25 minutes before they tops started to brown). Don’t bake them at higher heat or they won’t be as soft.
This recipe made about 50 small cut out rolls.
