60 Minute Yeast Rolls

 We had quite the stormy weather yesterday afternoon, but today  it is sunshine-y and beautiful!  Please join my for a favorite roll recipe and a cup of tea, won't you? 

 My son, Tim, and his daughter, Avery, picked me this pretty teacup orchid for Mother's Day.  I hope I can keep it going!   If you have any tips, please let me know. 

 This cast iron Grapevine teapot is from World Market, a favorite store of mine.  Grapevines are a Japanese symbol that represents the blessings of nature.  That's a beautiful thought, don't you agree?

 My late beloved Mom sent me home one year with this pretty Royal Albert teacup.  There isn't a pattern name on the back, but it has such a pretty Springtime pattern.

 My daughter, Molly, and her kids gave me this pretty topiary azalea plant for Mother's Day.  I hope I can keep it going, too!  

Here's Cissy with her baked rolls that she took home for her family.  We actually doubled the recipe for us each to have a dozen rolls.  Cissy made her mom and me some sugar scrub for a Mother's Day gift.  Wasn't that sweet of her? My son, Kevin and his wife, and little girls were out of town for Mother's Day, and he has been making me something for Mother's Day.  

I'm leaving for the Texas Hill Country this week, and driving with a friend to visit one of our friends that moved there to her lake house.  I won't be around to visit as much. 

Yield: 1 dozen

60 Minute Yeast Rolls


  • 2 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope  Rapid Rise Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter 


How to cook 60 Minute Yeast Rolls

  1. Combine 3/4 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Heat milk, water and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1/4 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes, or knead in mixer with a dough hook, for about 4 minutes.  Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
  2. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces; shape into balls. Place in greased 8-inch round pan. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  3. Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 20 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; brush with additional melted butter, if desired. Serve warm.
  4. To Freeze (unbaked rolls): Follow recipe as recommended up to and including when rolls are shaped and placed in pan. Tightly wrap rolls and pan with plastic wrap and foil. For best flavor, thaw and bake within one week of freezing.
  5. To Thaw: Place pan of rolls covered in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator and continue the thaw and rise process at room temperature. When thawing at room temperature, allow at least 2 hours for rolls to rise after removing from the refrigerator. If rolls are not rising, boil a pot of water, remove from heat, cover the pot with a wire rack and place pan of rolls, covered with a cloth on top of rack. The steam will warm the dough to speed the rising process. Once the rolls have doubled in size, bake according to recipe.

Thank you for your visit!  xo

I am sharing this with these lovely parties;


  1. Well, aren't you a spoilt grandmother and mother, Kitty. A live gift of Mother Nature is always the perfect gift. Those roses and the orchid is so very pretty. Have a fabulous trip visiting your friend. It sounds as if she lives in a heavenly spot♥

  2. Your rolls look like they would melt in your mouth Kitty! So many wonderful gifts and so much love from your family! I love the pretty orchid in the teacup and azalea topiary. I've never had any luck getting an orchid to rebloom but they're so long lasting and nice to enjoy while they're blooming. Enjoy your road trip and visit, safe travels! ♥

  3. We love those rolls too Kitty! Have a great trip, a visit to the lake sounds nice-enjoy:@)

  4. The orchid in the tea cup is lovely. I have not cared for orchids before but I understand they take patience since they can be dormant for periods of time. The topiary azalea will probably be a lot easier since they are super hardy. World Market has such amazing pieces. That teapot is a beauty! Cissy is so talented. That is amazing that she made both the rolls and sugar scrubs.

  5. I am so hungry for homemade bread! These really come out beautiful! Have fun on your trip to Texas! Take some shorts to wear! heehee! Hugs!

  6. The pretty orchid in a teacup is the perfect Mother's Day gift for you. I had an orchid years ago, but it only bloomed once. I kept it for years thinking it would bloom again.

    I'm also loving your cast iron teapot and RA teacup. I wished we had a World Market up here. Enjoy your visit with friends.

  7. Love the teacup Kitty. I had an orchid years back that was gifted to me and I had it for a long time. I did very little to it and kept it at my office. I will never forget arriving to work one Monday morning to find my beautiful orchid had went to heaven! LOL! The office had lost power on a Friday and Saturday and the orchid couldn't take the heat apparently. I have never had another one since. Oh your trip sounds like it's going to be fun! YAY and so glad you are going. Enjoy every moment dear friend. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  8. Pretty, wonderful Mother’s Day gifts! The rolls look amazing. Are they as delicious as a regular dinner roll that takes a lot longer to make?

  9. Your rolls look fantastic! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Have a great week.

  18. The only tip I can give you on the orchid is to buy some liquid orchid fertilizer and give it 1/3 cup of fertilized water once a week. They are such gorgeous flowers! I love your teapot and those rolls look so delicious. Great texture! Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend, Kitty!

  19. Kitty, the rolls look perfect! Love that teacup. I hope you'll stop in this week and get in on my Rishi Tea & Botanicals giveaway even though you're having a grand time in the Hill Country (I am so jealous!).
