  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 packet Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk (whole 2%, 1% OR skim)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter OR margarine
  • zest of 1 small lemon
  • 3 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons butter


  1. Place 3/4 cup of flour in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, salt and yeast and whisk together.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together lemon zest and Italian seasoning.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine milk, water and 2 tablespoons of butter. Heat up just until very warm (about 120 degrees F), the butter might not be completely melted. Remove from heat.
  4. With the mixer on low, add the liquids to the flour and yeast mixture, drizzling slowly on the side of the bowl. Mix well. Once all liquids are added, add 1/4 cup of the remaining flour and beat the mixture on medium to high speed for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the remaining flour and 3/4 of the citrus and herb mixture and knead the dough until it forms a ball.
  6. Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 6 minutes. Form into a log, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rest for 10 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees F (see note).
  8. Cut the dough into 12 equal pieces.
  9. Roll each piece into a ball and arrange in a greased cast iron skillet. Leave space between each ball so the dough has room to rise. Cover the skillet with a kitchen towel and place the skillet in the warm oven, until the rolls double in size (about 20 minutes).
  10. Remove the skillet from the oven. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  11. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a microwave safe dish. Stir in the remaining lemon zest and herb mixture.
  12. Brush rolls with melted butter mixture.
  13. Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the tops are nicely brown.
  14. Let the rolls cool to room temperature. Serve from a skillet or a serving plate.
