Sister Matheson's Favorite Rolls

Combine and let stand in a mixing bowl for 20 minutes:
1/2 cup warm water
1 TBSP dry yeast
1 TBSP sugar
1 tsp. baking powder

Scald: 1 cup milk
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
dash of salt
Add: 2 beaten eggs- mix continually while adding eggs

Combine yeast with milk-egg mixture (make certain the milk mixture has cooled enough so it doesn't' kill the yeast)
Combine all with at least 4 1/2 cup flour (add enough flour to make dough workable) not too much flour or it makes the dough dry
Let rise until double- about 1 hour- roll dough out on a lightly floured cloth
Cut into wedges and roll into crescent shape (or whatever shape desired)
Let rise on lightly greased pans- about 1 hour
Bake at 390 for about 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned


  1. This may be a dumb question, but what does scald mean?

  2. It means to warm the milk, it kind of cooks it without burning it. It is just shy of boiling.
