Make-Ahead Butterhorns

Make-Ahead Butterhorns

(makes 32 rolls)

  • 2 Tablespoons dry yeast, heaping
  • 1/3 cup warm water (110-115 degrees)
  • 9 cups flour, divided (you can use any mixture of white or whole-wheat flour you’d like)
  • 2 cups warm milk (110-115 degrees)
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar (we substituted sucanat)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3-4 Tablespoons butter, melted

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add 4 cups flour, milk, butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Beat 2 minutes or until smooth.

Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto floured board and knead lightly. (Or, knead in mixer until sides of bowl are clean, then knead two more minutes.)

Place in a greased bowl, turning dough once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (1-3 hours).

Punch dough down and divide into four equal parts. Roll each part into a 12-inch circle and brush with melted butter.

Cut each circle into 8 pie-shaped wedges. Roll up each wedge for wide edge to tip of dough and pinch to seal. Place rolls, top down, on baking sheets and freeze. When frozen, place in freezer bags and keep frozen until needed.

To bake: Take out as many frozen rolls as you’ll need and place them on a greased baking sheet. Thaw for five hours or until doubled in size. Bake at 375 degrees until lightly browned (about 8-10 minutes). Brush with melted butter as soon as they come out of the oven. Remove and serve immediately or cool on wire racks.

  1. We had these when we visited Ashley and Josh in Virginia summer of 2014. Ashley rolled ham in them, and baked as normal and had them for dinner. Very yummy!
