Not only are these rolls able to be made well in advance of baking, they are also SUPER delicious!! This recipe will make about 3 dozen rolls. If you don’t need that many, you can cut the recipe in half. I personally just make the whole batch and make a few here and there since the dough will keep for 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

This recipe uses self-rising flour. I like to buy White Lily self-rising flour. If you don’t want to fool with buying self-rising flour, you can easily make your own. 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1-1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt. Just make sure your baking powder is fresh otherwise you will have hard rolls.

We LOVED these rolls. They are light and fluffy and taste best slathered with butter!! I’m really looking forward to baking up a big batch next week. They are the perfect accompaniment to your holiday meal!
