Recipe by Jennifer Crisman, Ravenna, Ohio
First place, Yeast Breads (Rolls- Savory), 2017

Baking temperature: 375 degrees
Baking time: 15-18 minutes
Yield: 8 rolls


  • ¾ to 1 c lukewarm water (if humid use less water, if dry use more)
  • 2 T butter, room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 ½ c King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • ¼ c sugar
  • 1 ¼ r salt
  • 1 T instant dry yeast


  • Egg wash (1 egg white beaten lightly with ¼ c water)
  • Choice of topping, optional: Sesame or Poppy seeds, etc.
  • 1 T melted butter, optional


  • Mix and knead all of the dough ingredients, by hand or stand mixer with hook attachment to make a soft, smooth dough
  • Cover the dough and let it rise in a warm place for 1 to 2 hours, or until nearly doubled in bulk
  • Gently deflate the dough, and divide it into 8 pieces. Shape each piece into a round ball; flatten to about 3” across. Place the buns on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet, cover and let rise for about an hour, until noticeably puffy
  • Gently brush the rolls with the egg wash and sprinkle on choice of topping if desired
  • Bake the rolls in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden
  • Remove rolls from the oven and brush with melted butter if desired
  • Place the buns on a rack to cool
