Refrigerator Rolls

Recipe from Kim of Mo.


  • 2 pkgs. Dry-active yeast
  • 3/4 cup hot tap water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 4-5 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 1 cup warm tap water
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 5-1/4 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Mix hot water, sugar, salt and butter; cool until lukewarm.
  2. Measure warm water into separate bowl and add yeast and stir until dissolved. Stir into lukewarm water mixture.
  3. Add egg and half of the flour; beat with mixer until smooth. Gradually stir in remaining flour to make soft dough.
  4. Turn out on floured surface and knead until smooth.
  5. Place dough in a greased plastic or glass bowl. Cover. Store dough in refrigerator.
  6. Take dough from refrigerator as needed and shape into rolls. Let rolls rise in pans and bake at 400 degrees  until golden brown.

Makes about 4 dozen rolls.

* Sometimes I use 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour with 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour.

It sure makes life simple when wanting to include fresh made hot rolls for your guests by being able to make the dough the night before so it can do the first rise in the refrigerator.

Even novice cooks can easily master this family favorite recipe. You may use only a portion of the dough and save the rest for a few days later.
