Fluffy No Knead Refrigerator Rolls

The fluffiest dinner rolls come from the easiest no-knead dough.
Fluffy No Knead Refrigerator Rolls
Yield 16 rolls


  • 2 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 (0.25oz each) packages (14g) or 4 1/2 teaspoons Platinum Yeast
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 6 cups bread flour


  • Add 1 cup water and shortening to a saucepan. Heat on medium heat until shortening melts. Cool to 110-115°F. Add cooled water mixture to large mixing bowl. Add sugar and salt, stir until dissolved.
  • Add yeast, eggs and remaining water (lukewarm) to mixing bowl. Whisk thoroughly to combine. Stir in the flour until well combined.
  • Cover bowl with lightly greased foil and place in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or up to 48 hours.
  • When ready to bake, remove dough from the refrigerator. Gently turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 16 equal pieces. For each piece, tuck the edges under until the top of the dough is taut, like a bubble of bubble gum. Then place the roll on the floured surface, "bubble" side up, and roll it between your hands in a clockwise motion to tighten up the roll. Repeat with each dough piece.
  • Place rolls in 2-3 greased cake pans or 1 greased 13x9-inch pan. Cover lightly and let rise for one hour.
  • While rolls rise, preheat oven to 425°F . Bake rolls for 20-25 minutes, until deeply golden on top.
