Freckled Butterhorn Rolls

From the time they were old enough to talk, my two kids told me these rolls looked like they had freckles. The name stuck.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 Min. + rising Bake: 15 min.
  • Makes
    4 dozen


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 7 to 8 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ


  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in milk. Add butter, sugar, eggs, salt and 4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in wheat germ and 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; turn 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 into four portions. Roll each into a 12-in. circle; cut each circle into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges from the wide end and place pointed end down 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Curve ends to form a crescent shape. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Bake at 375° for 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks.
