I usually make Potato Rolls. We just love that recipe so much. The only problem is they take longer. If we ever are in a little more of a hurry we will make these One Hour Rolls. Still light, still fluffy, still delicious and they only take an hour!
Our girls really don’t care which rolls are made, all they care about is slathering homemade strawberry or raspberry jam all over them. I kind of agree. Rolls are amazing but you add that homemade jam and they are all kinds of lovely.
Rolls are becoming a Sunday staple but even more so a holiday staple. We could never have a Mother’s Day meal without them. Even when carne asada tacos are on the menu I’m tempted to request rolls as well. And yes, request not make. I totally do not make my own dinner. Even if Cade only made waffles I’d be a happy lady.
One Hour Rolls
- Recipe From an old Cooking Textbook of mine

- Sprinkle the yeast and sugar over the warm water.
- Melt the butter in the scalded milk. Cool until luke warm.

- Mix in the cooled butter/milk mixture.
- Add in the flour and stir to combine.
