I was baking bread, feeding cows and chopping tobacco before I could drive. I thought that was normal and it still is here on my farm. But as I got older, I realized that not everyone knows how to bake bread.
Well…okay. Like a whole lot of not everyone’s.
In fact, the idea terrifies a lot of people. But you know, this Sour Cream Yeast Rolls recipe is such an amazing place to start if you’ve never made rolls before. The dough of these sour cream yeast rolls is make ahead (8 hours ahead) so you won’t be stuck in your kitchen for three straight hours putting these together, and the dough is so forgiving. Not sticky. Easy to roll. Perfect for a newbie.
And you are going to love them.
Sour Cream Yeast Rolls
Of all the rolls I’ve ever made (and that’s a lot) this recipe has more flavor (from it’s long, slow rise in the oven) than any recipe I’ve used before. I kid you not, that to get these pictures I was swatting hands left and right.
And when I got done? My family ate 6 in 10 minutes and the rest within an hour. I’m pretty sure my daughter had a couple in her pockets.
Tips for Making Sour Cream Yeast Rolls
- The key to these sour cream yeast rolls is activating the yeast. Once you do that, the rest is a cake walk. If you don’t know how, check out my post for all the easy steps. Then they get a long slow rise in the fridge for the yeast to hang out and make its magic.
- To make these ahead, simply bake them and then drop them in a freezer bag and put them in the freezer for up to a week. I really wouldn’t go longer than that.Then take them out and let them thaw, wrap them in foil and stick them in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes or so to heat them through.
- This sour cream yeast rolls recipe makes exactly 12 rolls as long as you keep the balls just a bit bigger than a marble. If you go nuts, you’re going to have larger rolls, but fewer of them.
They’re perfect with soups, along side a nice roast or on your holiday table with a perfectly roasted turkey. So soft. Light. So much flavor. Good Lord I love bread. I hope you love these too.
