Sour Cream Fan Rolls
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 20 min./batch
Makesabout 2-1/2 dozen
- 7 to 8 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 cups sour cream
- 1 cup water
- 6 tablespoons butter, cubed
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- In a large bowl, combine 3-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, salt and baking powder. In a small saucepan, heat the sour cream, water and butter to 120°-130°; add to dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes longer. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 23x9-in. rectangle. Cut into 1-1/2-in. strips. Stack five strips together; cut into 1-1/2-in. pieces and place cut side up in a greased muffin cup. Repeat with remaining strips. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 20 minutes.
- Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks.

Definitely use your kitchen aid if you have it. I avoid using mine because i find it cumbersome, but my little mixer couldn’t stand up to this dough and over heated. I don’t know if I’d make these again. They are moist but not very flavorful. Considering how much butter and sour cream Is in here I was expecting more flavor for the calories. Even having used salted butter, I think they need slightly more salt. These would be perfect if you have a dinner guest over that only likes plain food / is a super picky eater that prefers the taste of plain white bread without anything too intense.

These rolls are a family favorite. I have found they bake best for me as small rolled balls in two 9X13 baking dishes. They taste even better with a sprinkle of Asiago Cheese baked on top.

This was a denser roll than I expected, but still good. Next time I'm going to make these into a loaf of bread instead of rolls though.
