Spoon Rolls

1 – ¼ oz. packet active dry yeast

2 C. warm (100º) water

1 ½ sticks unsalted butter, melted

¼ C. sugar

1 lg. egg

4 C. self-rising flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water. With an electric mixer, combine butter and sugar, then add egg. Add yeast mixture and combine well. Gradually stir in flour until smooth. Pour into a greased, airtight 2 quart bowl. Store tightly covered in refrigerator to rise overnight.*(Dough can be stored in the fridge for up to three days. If the mixture gets watery, just add a little more flour)

The next day, preheat oven to 350º. Grease miniature muffin tins. Spoon dough into each muffin cup (about ¾ full) and bake rolls for 18 to 20 minutes, or until browned.
