3 cups all-purpose flour 2 packages (.25 ounce size) active dry yeast 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar 1/4 cup nonfat dry milk 1 1/4 cup warm water (105-115 degrees F) 1 large egg, slightly beaten 8 tablespoons butter, melted 2 tablespoons butter-flavored vegetable shortening
Place 2 cups flour in a large mixing bowl. Add yeast, salt, sugar and dry milk. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine water and egg and stir to blend. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour water mixture into well. Mix by hand, beating 150 strokes and frequently scraping bottom and sides of bowl.
Add 1/2 the melted butter and beat to incorporate. Add remaining flour, about 1/3 cup at a time, beating to incorporate each addition. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Set dough in a warm, draft-free place such as oven with pan of hottest tap water on rack below. Allow batter to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
Coat cups, bottoms and sides of a 12-cup muffin pan (or two small round pans) with butter-flavored vegetable shortening. Punch down batter (batter will be extremely soft and sticky). Drop by hand or spoonful into prepared muffin pan cups to make 12 rolls (if in pan, each roll touching the next). Brush dough with 1/2 remaining melted butter.
Let rise, uncovered, in warm, draft-free place until almost doubled in bulk, about 30 minutes. In preheated 400 degrees F oven, bake rolls on middle rack 16-18 minutes. Brush tops of cooked rolls with remaining melted butter. Serve immediately.
These aren't like Logan's. They are great rolls though.

I agree, they are nothing like Logan's rolls, but none the less delicious. Maybe I did something wrong, but when I made these they came out exactly like Schlotzsky's sandwich bread minus the sourdough effect.

Good roll recipe but not Logan's Rolls. The Logan's rolls are a more KrispyKreme/SconeCutter like bread.

Although this roll recipe is good, I do not think they compare to the Logan's rolls. There are not nearly as sweet, smooth, or fluffy, but they were very easy to make. Good rolls - but taste nothing like Logans.

These rolls are to die for! Those who don't have a Logan's nearby, should visit the southeast and get the experience. Light (not unfattening!), served hot, and unlimited quantities to accompany Logan's steaks, ribs, chicken, pork recipes. AND all the free peanuts you can stand!
