Melt in Your Mouth Rolls

These really were light and fluffy rolls. I made them in the breadmaker and let it go through the whole cycle. I then let them raise about 20 minutes before baking. Very easy and tasty recipe.

Melt in Your Mouth Rolls taste of home bb

1 cup milk
1/8 cup shortening- I use Butter flavor Crisco
1/8 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
2+1/2 tsp active dry yeast

1/4 cup water, 110-115 degrees
3 1/2 cups flour
1 egg

Put the milk, egg, shortening, water in the bread machine pan, add your bread flour, sugar, salt and yeast. I set the machine for dough cycle only, ****Beth let it do the second rise in the bread machine and formed into 12 buns. After it kneads and lets the dough do the first rising I take the dough out and make into rolls, or crescent rolls, or whatever shapes, sometimes making filled bread. The crescent rolls I usually separate the dough into just two bundles and roll out into a circle, smear with softened margarine and cut into pie shapes and roll up starting with wide end first, putting the rolled ones, tip side down on greased baking sheets. But for your second rising I let mine rise about 45-60 mins. Bake in a 400 oven for 12-25 mins. When you make a stuffed bread, heat the oven to about 325 and let them bake for about 20-25 mins to get done in the center.

For stuffed bread variations(original posters' notes)

I have used deli smoked turkey, chopped up, with Swiss cheese, and fresh broccoli which I barely steam in the microwave with NO water. The less moisture in the bread, the better.
I have used this for pizza versions as well, as Mexican, and this same recipe can be used for cinnamon rolls.

  1. Made these for dinner tonight. Baked them in a 9 x 13 and they were just like my grandmother's "high buns" as my brothers used to call them. This will be my new "go to" recipe.

    Thanks for sharing.
