Sour Cream Fan Rolls

These are so yummy!

Sour Cream Fan Rolls

2 Tablespoons active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided
2 cups warm sour cream
2 eggs, lightly beaten
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
7 to 8 cups all purpose flour

1. In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 2 tablespoons sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, eggs, butter , salt and remaining sugar.

2. Stir in the baking powder, yeast mixture and 4 cups of flour until smooth. Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough.

3. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic; about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about an hour.

4. Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 23-in. x 9-in. rectangle.

5. Cut into 1-1/2 inch strips. Stack five strips together; cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces and place cut side up in a greased muffin cup. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 20 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.

*I did some of mine on a cookie sheet instead of a muffin tin and I liked how they turned out better.

* The recipe said to put them cut down up, but then they don't turn into the fan, so I would put the side with the layers up.
