Friday Favorites: Rita's Rolls

My sister and I named these rolls after Will's mom because she made them at Thanksgiving last year and they were DELISH! She gave me the recipe then, but I didn't get around to making them until Easter lunch this past weekend. They were easy-peasy to make. Here is the recipe.

1/4c. sugar
2c. warm water
1 pkg. yeast
Stir together and let sit for about 5 minutes.

1 egg
1-1/2 sticks melted butter
4c. self-rising flour
Mix about with yeast mixture. Cover and refrigerate until ready to bake. Bake in muffin tin at 375 for approximately 20 minutes. Yield: 24 rolls. Can keep in refrigerator for up to two weeks (so you don't have to bake them all at once.

NOTE: These rolls look more like muffins when they bake. If anyone has ever lived in Tuscaloosa, these rolls taste like they rolls they serve at the Diner.

YUM! Nothing I like better than fresh, warm homemade bread. Well, except maybe chocolate. Haha. I've just started trying my hand at yeast breads. This looks easy--thanks!

I'll have to try these. I haven't made many rolls since I "met" Sister Schubert, but I think I can handle these. :)

Yes- I'm with Kim. My mom went to college with "Sister" and we have had her rolls for decades- literally! But I have never met a carb I don't like, so I might just have to give it a try!
