Angel Rolls were one of my first bread baking successes and I’ve made them again and again. Often for holidays but also for Sunday dinners with the whole family. They are just so simple and delicious.

For years and years I was unsuccessful at baking fresh yeast breads. Once I had success, I couldn’t get enough of it.  One of the keys to my success was making sure that my yeast hadn’t expired!

I have become a very loyal user of Red Star Yeast. I particularly love Red Star Yeast Platinum. It bakes up the best breads and sweet rolls that I’ve ever made.

My mom made Angel Rolls when I was growing up and to master the dinner roll recipe that she always made was a big accomplishment for me. My mom is such a good cook!

Homemade rolls are usually my favorite part of the meal. I make them for practically every holiday. A few years back I made a baked up a batch for Christmas dinner and while they were good, they were not great. I was so disappointed.

There’s nothing worse than a disappointing dish for your holiday meal. I couldn’t stop thinking about why my rolls didn’t turn out. I made them exactly the same way I always do…. and then it dawned on me that I had used a different brand of flour.

Your ingredients really do matter. I love the combination of Red Star Yeast and King Arthur Flour for all of my bread baking. I have used bread flour but I usually use the all- purpose flour since I usually have it on hand.

So don’t be intimidated by yeast rolls, I’m hear to say that if I can do it, so can you! The more you work with yeast dough, the more you will get the feel of it.

I am still not the best at shaping dough but I get lucky sometimes and they look as good as they taste! It’s hard to beat a light and fluffy dinner roll slathered with butter.

  1. Aunt Emma ask if I had ever made Angel Rolls. They look delicious. I’ve had good and bad rolls through the years. My husband made rolls for the holidays. Looking forward to making yours. Thanks for the ads, I enjoy learning about new products.

  2. Hello Miss, Thank you for the great recipe. I made these, they came out beautifully, but had a bitter aftertaste

  3. I’m a big fan of red star yeast, I use their site, and have made them many times. I also make Angel biscuits, fast freeze, and put a dozen in freezer bags, fast, easy for supper when you on the run.
