Yield about 4 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 (1/4-ounce) envelopes active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (105° to 115°)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

How to Make It

  1. Cook first 4 ingredients in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until butter melts. Cool to 105° to 115°.

  2. Combine yeast and 1/2 cup warm water in a 1-cup glass liquid measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.

  3. Stir together yeast mixture, sour cream mixture, eggs, and flour in a large bowl until well blended.

  4. Chill, covered, 8 hours.

  5. Divide dough into fourths, and shape each portion into a ball. Roll each into 1/4-inch thickness on a floured surface; cut dough with a 2 1/2- to 3-inch round cutter. Brush rounds evenly with 2 tablespoons melted butter. Make a crease across each round with a knife, and fold in half; gently press edges to seal. Place rolls in a 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan with sides touching.

  6. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

  7. Bake at 375° for 12 to 15 minutes.
