Buttery Pillowy Rolls
Buttery Pillowy Rolls


  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2/3 cup or 10 tbsp klim powder (instant powdered milk)
  • 2 tbsp instant dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup soft butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 to 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  1. In the large bowl of an electric mixer combine the water and the milk powder and stir so the milk dissolves.
  2. Next, add the sugar, salt, butter, egg, 2 cups of the flour and yeast. Mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, then turn to medium speed and mix for 2 minutes. Stop the mixer and add 3 more cups of flour, then mix on low speed until the ingredients are combined, then turn mixer on medium speed and mix for 2 minutes to knead. The dough will be getting stiffer.
  3. Add approximately 1/2 cup of flour and mix again. (This can be done by hand or mixer). The dough should be soft, not overly sticky, and not too stiff. It should be pulling away from the sides of the mixer. That's how I know it has enough flour.
  4. Scrape the dough off the sides of the bowl and pour a tablespoon of vegetable oil all around the sides of the bowl. Turn the dough over in the bowl so it is covered with the oil. This helps prevent the dough from drying out. Cover with cling wrap and allow to rise in a warm place until double in size (about an hour).
  5. Sprinkle flour onto the clean kitchen counter and put the dough on the flour. You want to put enough flour on the dough so that it is workable and not sticky.
  6. You can roll these into crescent rolls or make them into the Lion House way like mine which i googled and watched how to do it on youtube, it was really easy. Then place them on a greased baking pan.
  7. Cover again with a kitchen towel. Let rise in a warm place until the rolls are double in size for 1 and 1/2 hours
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 190 degrees c for 15-20 minutes or until they are lightly browned. This definitely depends on the size of your rolls. Brush with melted salted butter while hot.
    You could easily get about 2 dozen rolls of you making them small.
  9. There are many ways to shape the rolls just search on google.
