Directions: 

  • I used a bread machine for this recipe. You could also do it without one by using a stand mixer and following the steps.
  • In a small bowl add 2 teaspoons of yeast, 2 teaspoons of sugar, and 1/2 cup of warm water. Let it stand for 15 minutes. It will rise up.

  • Turn on the DOUGH setting on your bread machine, and let it do the job. For my dough setting it’s 2 hours and 20 minutes. This can vary depending on your machine.

  • In a rectangular 18″ X 13″ baking sheet. (If your pan is not a nonstick type then you should put a sheet of parchment paper.)
  • The dough will be easy to work with, but with the help of unbleached flour the buns can look better. Form the dough into 24 balls and lay them on the baking sheet.

  1. Wow! These rolls look so soft and amazing. The way they are set up on the baking tray reminds me of the rolls served in grade school. I must try out this recipe for Thanksgiving!
