Easy Yeast Rolls
1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
3/4 cups water (98 to 105 degrees F)
2 ½ cups (plus ½ to 1 cup) prepared biscuit mix
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted butter
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F Dissolve the yeast in the water. Put the 2 ½ cups of biscuit mix in a large bowl; stir in the sugar. Add the yeast mixture, stirring vigorously. Sprinkle the work surface generously with the remaining ½ to 1 cup biscuit mix.
- Turn the dough out onto the surface and knead well, 15 to 20 times. Shape the dough as desired. (I shape heaping tablespoons of dough into balls.) Place on a lightly greased baking sheet, cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place for one hour.
- Just before putting into oven, brush rolls with melted butter. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush the rolls again with melted butter while they’re hot.
