Butterhorn Rolls

  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

In a small saucepan, combine shortening and milk. Heat until shortening is melted; set aside to cool. Dissolve the yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in the warm water. Beat the eggs, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt together. In a large bowl, combine the milk mixture, yeast mixture, and egg mixture. Sift the flour and baking powder together, and add to the wet mixture; stir until combined, then cover and refrigerate overnight.

Divide dough into fourths and roll out on a floured surface. Spread surface with the soft butter. Cut dough into triangles and roll up from larger to small end. Place rolls on a baking sheet, and allow to rise for 3 to 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C.)

Bake in a preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

I love Butterhorn Rolls, but never even tried to make them. Your recipe makes them sound easy to make. I feel like giving them a try. What have I got to lose? I'm not getting any younger, and if I succeed, I'll be the apple of my family's eyes.

Thanks for a really good sounding recipe.

Quick, so easy, and oh so light! Makes great raisin bread.


  • 1 pkg yeast
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 1/2 cup flour


Beat sugar, butter and eggs until well blended. Stir in milk and yeast. Add flour beating after each 1/2 cup. May turn out on lightly floured surface and knead until smooth but not necessary. Turn into greased bowl and let rise until double.


Punch down, take a ball of the dough roughly the size of a small grapefruit and roll it out to around 1/16 inch circle. As in the photo, cut into pie shapes, roll from the wide end to the point, bend in a slight circle. With the point down place on greased cookie sheet. Let raise until doubled, bake 12-15 minutes at 425 degrees F or until brown.
