AMAZING BUTTERMILK ROLLS

My first recipe came from the Sisters Cafe. I LOVE that blog!
Tried and tested.....the roll dough WILL stay good in the fridge for 7 days! Awesome! I will admit that I did this recipe before the new year, but I cooked the rest after.



Buttermilk Refigerator Rolls
Submitted by Melanie
3 cups Buttermilk (room temperature)
3 cups flour
1 T. yeast dissolved in ¼ cup warm water (first let rise a few minutes)
½ cup sugar
3 eggs, beaten with a fork
2 tsp salt
5 cups flour (sometimes you need a cup more--it should not be too sticky)
½ cup oil
1 tsp baking soda

Dissolve yeast in ¼ c. warm water and let proof a few minutes. Mix the buttermilk, flour and yeast together thoroughly in a large mixing bowl. Cover and let this stand at room temperature until double in size, about 2 hours.
Add sugar, eggs, salt, flour, oil, and baking soda. Mix well and knead for 7-10 minutes. Roll out what you want and place the rest in the refrigerator, covered. The next time you want some fresh baked rolls, take from the bowl what you want and again put the rest back in the refrigerator. It will keep for 7 days. (This is perfect for Sunday meals because you don’t have a lot of mess to clean up and it’s quick.)
Let rolls rise on baking sheets until double in size. Time depends on the room temperature, usually 1½ - 2 hours. Dough from the refrigerator will take longer because the dough is cold.
Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes. Brush with melted butter if you like.

Thanks for the recipe! Loved them! I even put garlic butter in some of them before we baked them to have with Seafood lasagna and they were fabulous as well! EXCELLENT! I am on the same crazy Julie/Julia kick! After watching the movie last month, i had to own the book too, i am only a few chapters in but i am loving it! I have to see if the book ends the way the movie does. Just in case you were wondering ( Probably not) i also wanted a copy of the First edition cook book! I found one but they want $545.00! OUCH! Guess i will have to settle for a new edition, bummer! Your family is adorable!
