How to Make Yeast Dough

Making yeast dough from scratch at home using Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast is very easy! And these garlic yeast dough rolls smell so good when baking in the oven. The aroma is unbeatable! Here are a few yeast dough tips to follow to get great results every time!

1. Before starting, check the expiration date on your yeast. Expired yeast is often a reason dough doesn’t rise.

2. Always use a thermometer to check water temperature. The water should be lukewarm and not hot, measuring between 120F and 130F. If the water is too hot, it will kill the yeast.

3. Knead the dough for 6 to 8 minutes, until it’s smooth and elastic. A soft dough is the secret to great cinnamon rolls!

4. Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast only requires 10 minutes of rising time, which cuts down on the recipe prep time!

Bacon & Cheddar Filling

For filling these delicious garlic rolls, I combine smoky bacon bits, grated cheddar and Parmesan, green onion and garlic. I also like to add smoked paprika for even more smoky flavor and dried basil. This filling is the perfect complement to the herbed garlic butter topping. Make the garlic topping while you’re waiting for the rolls to proof to allow the garlic flavor to infuse into the butter!
