  • Make the yeast dough according to the recipe in this post up through the first rise.
  • Punch down the dough after it has risen and knead a few times until smooth. Divide the dough in half and set one half to the side. Divide the section of dough you are working with into thirds and each of those thirds, cut into thirds again. You should have nine little chunks of dough. Form each little chunk into a smooth round ball and place in a greased baking dish about 1 inch apart. This will make large rolls, if you prefer smaller ones, divide the dough into 12 sections, instead of 9.
  • I usually only make half the dough at a time and freeze the other half. 9 rolls will fit into an 8 x 8 baking dish.
  • Cover and let rise until double. Preheat oven to 350 F. Gently brush the rolls with the beaten egg after they have risen and bake for 15-18 minutes or until done.
  • Cool slightly and remove from pan to cool completely. They store tightly covered for about 2 days.
