“This has been a favorite yeast roll in our family. My Mom used to make these, so this brings back good memories of her. I have brought these to potlucks and usually don't take any home with me. Kids will take two or three at one time once they have tasted them. Use them as a dinner roll or ice them with a butter icing, top with crusted walnuts. Humm.....”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. I use my Bosch mixer with dough hooks to make these, but you can make them by hand as well.
  2. Into the mixing bowl put yeast, sugar and hot water.
  3. Melt margarine and crisco and add to mixing bowl.
  4. Add about 4 cups of flour, then the eggs and salt.
  5. Add the remaining flour until dough is clean from the sides of the bowl.
  6. This may differ and not necessarily be 9 cups, it could be less or maybe more.
  7. Let the mixer knead the dough a couple of minutes.
  8. Place dough in large greased bowl (tupperware fix-n-mix) and cover.
  9. Then let rise about 20-30 minutes or till lid of tupperware pops off.
  10. Punch down.
  11. Preheat oven to 400 deg F.
  12. Roll dough into about 9" circles, 1/3 inch thick.
  13. Cut each circle into 10- 12 wedge-shaped pieces.
  14. (Wide end should be about 2 1/2- 3 inches wide).
  15. Roll up each wedge, starting at wide end and rolling to the point.
  16. Place on greased pan and finish doing this to all the dough.
  17. Let rise, covered with a clean teatowel and a plastic sheet on top of the towel (like a heavy plastic bag cut open).
  18. The plastic keeps the rolls from drying out as they are rising.
  19. Bake at 400 deg F for about 8- 10 minutes or until golden in color.
