Yeast Rolls

 Prep Time15 minutes

 Cook Time20 minutes

 Rise time2 hours

 Total Time35 minutes

 Servings20 rolls


  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup Louisville Pure Tap™ (105 to 115 degrees)
  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, may need a little more


  • Place milk in a small saucepan and bring it just to a boil. Immediately remove from heat and stir in sugar, butter, and salt. Let cool to lukewarm. (You don’t want it hotter than 115 degrees.)
  • Mix together warm Louisville Pure Tap™ and yeast. You can do this right in the glass measuring cup that you measure the Louisville Pure Tap™ in. Let sit a few minutes.
  • Pour yeast mixture into the mixing bowl for your electric mixer. Add milk mixture, eggs, and 2 cups of flour. Beat with paddle attachment until mixed.
  • Beat in remaining 2 1/2 cups flour gradually. There is a chance you will need a little less than 4 1/2 cups of flour.
  • Next knead the dough. You can use the dough hook and the electric mixer. Beat with speed set to 2 for about 7 minutes. Or you can knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Place dough in a buttered bowl. Turn the dough ball so it gets greased with butter on all sides. Cover bowl with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Divide dough into balls of about 2 to 3 tablespoons each. Place in a greased 9×13-inch pan. I do 5 rows with 4 in each roll. Cover and let rise 1 hour.
  • About 10 minutes before rolls are ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Brush tops of rolls with butter and serve.
