(For a step-by-step guide on this, go to How to Make Cheese Rolls)1 In a small bowl, combine yeast, sugar, and lukewarm water. Let stand for 5 minutes to let bubbles form on top.2 In a large bowl, mix together eggs, yolks, water, and butter. Pour in the yeast mixture and mix.3 In another large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, powdered milk, and salt. Pour in the liquid mixture; mix. (Dough will be quite sticky.)4 Grease your work area with butter. Knead the dough until smooth. (To check for the right consistency, dough should be easily stretched into a thin film without breaking.)5 Form dough into a ball and place in a greased bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Let dough rise at room temperature until it doubles in size, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.6 Remove plastic and punch down dough to release air.7 Form dough into a log and divide equally into 40 (50-gram) pieces.8 Using a rolling pin, flatten each piece; spread with softened butter.9 Place a cheese stick in the center of each piece; roll. Pinch ends to seal.10 Arrange rolls on a greased baking sheet and proof until they double in size. Bake at 325ºF for 15 minutes.11 Brush cheese rolls with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Time- and energy-saving tip: Make it effortless! In Step 4, you can also use an electric mixer with the dough hook attachment to mix and knead the dough. To get a darker crust, brush top with milk before baking.
