Overnight Yeast Rolls

I stumbled across this recipe as I was prepping vegetables in my kitchen one Saturday morning.   I wasn’t really paying attention to the TV until I noticed Trisha Yearwood demonstrating a yeast roll recipe that sat overnight after being mixed together.  But I was hooked when the rise overnight dough was then spooned into muffin tins and immediately baked.  They didn’t even need to rise.  But there was more – the dough would keep for several days in the refrigerator allowing  fresh rolls to be baked daily.   Because of wheat intolerances in our family, the self rising flour in Trisha’s recipe didn’t work so I made a few changes; however I have referenced Trisha’s recipe below to give credit where credit is due.
