How to Make It

Step 1

Combine yeast and warm water in a 1-cup measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes. Combine 3 cups baking mix and sugar in a large bowl; gradually stir in yeast mixture.

Step 2

Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead, adding additional baking mix (up to 1/2 cup) as needed, until dough is smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes).

Step 3

Roll dough into a 12-inch circle; cut circle into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges, starting at wide end, to form a crescent shape; place, point sides down, on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 425°. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.

Step 5

Note: To make rolls in a heavy-duty electric stand mixer, prepare as directed in Step Beat dough at medium speed, using dough hook attachment, about 5 minutes, beating in 1/2 cup additional baking mix, if needed, until dough leaves the sides of the bowl and pulls together, becoming soft and smooth. Proceed with recipe as directed in Step We tested with Bisquick All-Purpose Baking Mix.

Step 6

To Make Ahead: Rolls may be frozen up to 2 months. Bake at 425º for 5 minutes; cool completely (about 30 minutes). Wrap in aluminum foil, and freeze in an airtight container. Thaw at room temperature on a lightly greased baking sheet; bake at 425° for 7 to 8 minutes or until golden.

Thanks for posting this recipe. Can you please give the calorie count per roll? That would be helpful. (Haven't made these yet, so it's difficult to give an accurate review. :)

If you want to serve homemade rolls and don't have a lot of time, these are good basic rolls. Not sure about prior reviewer's remark about them being heavy. Was her yeast old or did she fail to proof the properly before baking? Or maybe she just has a different mental model of what a good roll should be. I tested out freezing these, for just a couple of days, then browning. Worked great. I'd make these again & I"d sere them to guests. Potential to dress them up w/cinnamon; change to parkerhouse style & insert a sliver of ham; brush w/melted butter, etc. Works well w/lite Bisquick.
