Ingredients Weight Measure
Yeast 2 pkg.
Warm water 1/2 cup
All-purpose flour 2 qts.
Baking powder 2 Tbsp.
Salt 1 tsp.
Sugar 1-1/2 cups
Margarine 1-1/2 cups
Egg yolks 12 ea.
TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce 1/4 cup
Evaporated milk 3/4 cup
Cheddar cheese, shredded 36 oz.


  1. Dissolve the yeast in the 1/2 cup warm water.
  2. Sift all of the flour, baking powder and salt together. Into the yeast mixture, stir 1-1/2 cups sugar and 1 qt. of the sifted flour mixture. Cover and let rise in warm place for about 20 minutes until doubled in size.
  3. Cream margarine; add remaining sugar gradually until well mixed. Add egg yolks one at a time, beating very well after each one. Add the TABASCO® Sauce; beat in the remaining 1 qt. flour mixture, alternating with the evaporated milk. Then stir in the doubled yeast mixture and beat until smooth.
  4. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 2-oz. balls and let stand covered for a half hour. Roll each ball into an 8" circle. Sprinkle 2 Tbsp. cheese onto each circle. Roll circles like a jellyroll and coil into crescent shape.
  5. Place on ungreased baking sheets with paper liner. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
  6. Preheat the oven to 400°F and bake the rolls for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. Remove from oven and immediately brush with some melted margarine,* a sprinkling of sugar* and remaining cheese. Serve while warm.
