  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the buttermilk, sugar, vegetable oil and flour to the yeast mixture; mix well. Roll dough out 1/2 inch thick and cut into circles with a biscuit cutter. Place a tablespoon of butter on top of each biscuit and fold biscuits in half. Place rolls on lightly greased baking sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.

These are so easy yet so good. I just finished a batch, I made a few alterations, I doubled the recipe, added a 1/4 cup butter to the batter(i LOVE butter :]) I let them rise for about 15 minutes(this made them more fluffy), I didn't fold them in half, I made them like biscuits and beat and egg white and 4 tablespoons of butter together and brushed them on top. They came out awesome I will definatly be making these again.


The fact that these are called "rolls" is misleading. They are in fact biscuits. The flavor was okay but they were not nice enough to serve with our Easter dinner. We ended up making something different.


These "rolls" did not rise. Although they did have a good flavor, these are definitely not yeast rolls, they are biscuts.
