Copycat Lion House Rolls
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2 Tablespoons yeast
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ⅔ cup dry powdered milk
  • 1 egg
  • 5+ cups flour
  1. Put the yeast into a bowl of warm water and allow it to dissolve for approximately 5 minutes.
  2. As the yeast is dissolving, mix together the salt, sugar, and powdered milk and set aside.
  3. Add the dry ingredient mixture and egg to the yeast water and mix.
  4. Mix 5+ cups of flour into the mixture, ONE CUP AT A TIME. The amount of flour needed will vary depending on humidity, elevation, etc. The dough should not be sticky and should be pulling away from the side of the bowl.
  5. Lightly spray a large bowl with cooking spray and place the dough into the bowl. Lightly spray one side of a piece of cellophane wrap and place it over the top of the bowl, sprayed side facing the dough.
  6. Place the dough in a warm spot and allow it to rise for 2-3 hours, or until doubled in size.
  7. Roll out the dough on a floured surface. Cut and form rolls. I usually knot them.
  8. Place formed rolls on lightly greased cookie sheets. Place lightly sprayed cellophane wrap over the rolls/cookie sheet, sprayed side facing the rolls.
  9. Place the cookie sheets in a warm spot and allow the rolls to rise for 1+ hours.
  10. Bake the rolls at 350 degrees for approximately 12 minutes.
  11. Melt the butter and brush it on top of the hot rolls.
  12. Serve and enjoy!
