  • 9 Cups Flour
  • 4 1/2 Tsp Active Dry Yeast (2 packages)

Each batch gives 16 rolls, making 48 rolls per batch! This is a perfect way to make rolls for a group.

Some more tips for baking rolls for a large group include:

Storing the dough in the fridge for a couple days if you want to make a fresh batch each day. This dough is best for two days. Allow the dough to come to room temp before baking by setting them out for 2 hours before bake time.

Or if you are prepping for a lot of people, bake and freeze the rolls themselves. You can reheat them by thawing, covering with foil on a cookie sheet and baking for 5-10 minutes on 350º. Test them to see how warm you want them.
