Sour Cream Yeast Rolls

Sour Cream Yeast Rolls

  • 2-1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour (I ended up using more like 3 1/4 cups flour)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 egg
  1. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat the sour cream, water and 2 tablespoons butter to 120°-130°; add to dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add egg and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes longer. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. (I let my Kitchen Aid do the work with a dough hook for 6 minutes) Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 12 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.(With mine the tops were brown after 10 minutes. So I just draped foil on top of the rolls and cooked for 10 more minutes. Mine were ready after 20 minutes) Melt remaining butter; brush over rolls. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen.

Homemade rolls, yummy,yummy, but not good on the waist line so I can't eat them but I sure would like to try one of your rolls, Kristin. Have you tried using bread flower instead of all purpose. Wonder how that would taste?

Kevin and I both got such a laugh out Daddy's last comment about the Coconut Creamt Pie...LOL! he loved to cook and Grandmother wrote the recipe in his cookbook! hahaha

I am a bread lover! So, I will definitely try this yummy recipe.

I have to say that these rolls were really great, but not as good as I was expecting. Yes, mama, I have used bread flower and yes, I think it is better. But I always go by the recipe the first time around. Candace, I was just going through two OLD recipe books that Grandmother gave me that were hers. There is a recipe that she scribbled in the side that was from Mama Boone. It was for chocolate pound cake. That is the next one that I am going to try. It was cute because she had some instructions in there that started, "Mama said to..."

ok, flower was meant to be spelled...flour.

Ok, that was going to be my first's FLOUR not flower! :)

Next, those rolls sound yummy, Kristin! We are trying to cut out almost all the bread we eat, but I may just have to try those anyway. Nothing tastes better than homemade bread. Like all the loaves that Mama used to make for us. You are so sweet, Mama!
