1package instant yeast ¼ ounce (or active dry yeast)
1cuplukewarm water110-115º Fahrenheit (8 ounces)

In a large glass mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, yeast and eggs.
Add the water, salted Challenge Butter and salt. Mix again.
Add 2 cups of flour. Mix by hand or with a hand mixer on medium low speed until smooth.
Add the remaining flour ½ cup at a time to form a soft dough. The dough should be very sticky, almost like a thick batter instead of a kneadable dough. Don't be tempted to add more flour.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator overnight.
The next morning, remove the dough from the bowl, divide dough in two equal portions and place on a floured surface.
Flour the top of the dough balls, your hands and the rolling pin. (I use no more than ⅓ cup of flour for flouring the surface and dough. Try not to add too much flour at this stage or your rolls will be dry.)
Roll each dough ball into a 12” circle.
Use a pizza cutter to cut 12 triangles. You’ll have a total of 24 rolls.
Roll up each wedge starting at the wide end and rolling towards the narrow end.
Place 2-3” apart on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet.
Allow the rolls to rise until nearly double, about 2-3 hours.
Preheat the oven to 400º Fahrenheit.
Brush the top of each roll with the melted salted Challenge Butter.
Bake for 10-11 minutes or until golden brown.
After the rolls come out of the oven, immediately brush them with salted Challenge Butter again.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
Same Day Rolls: Did you forget to make the roll dough the night before? Hey...it happens and it's ok. You'll still need a good 6-8 hours of daytime to make the recipe but you can make it all in one day. Mix up the dough, let it rise at room temperature for 4-5 hours. Then shape the rolls and let them rise for another 2-3 hours. Then bake.Refer to the article above for more tips and tricks.The calories shown are based on the recipe making 24 rolls, with 1 serving being 1 roll.
