Butter Flake Rolls


  • 4-5 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 pkgs. dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 3 eggs
  • melted butter


In mixing bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, dry yeast and warm water, mixing well. Cover; let rise in warm place until light and bubbly, 20-30 minutes. In a large bowl, combine margarine, sugar, salt & eggs. Beat in until well blended. Add yeast mixture, mixing well. By hand gradually add 3-4 cups flour to form a stiff dough. Knead on floured surface about 30 strokes. Place dough in greased bowl, turning to grease top.


Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, 1-1 1/2 hours. Punch down; divide in half. Roll each to 12x8 rectangle. Cut into 1" strips. Roll each in melted butter. Coil to form a snail and place in greased muffin cup pans. Makes 24 rolls. Cover. Let rise in warm place for 30 minutes. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes.

I've used a similar recipe to make Cloverleaf rolls. Grease the muffin cups, and roll the dough into small walnut-sized balls. Dip each ball into melted butter, and place 3 balls into each muffin cup.

Let rise for about 45 minutes, then bake about 15 minutes in 375 degree F oven. They turn out so pretty, and of course, delicious.

ParkerHouse rolls can be made with the same dough, and baked the same way.


Thanks Robin. We can never have too many good bread and roll recipes. They are all so similar, and tell us that it's hard to ruin a bread recipe. More than anything, it's learning the ingredients and how to handle the dough.
