2. Add sour cream and sugar into the saucepan with melted butter. Mix well. Into a large bowl, pour the mixture and set it aside to cool.

3. In a glass measuring cup, mix together active dry yeast and warm water. Mix well and let stand for 5 minutes.

12. Brush dough with melted butter, as needed. Cut each circle into 12 equally-sized wedges.

13. Roll up each wedge as shown in the video beginning at the wider end and place them on baking sheet.

14. Cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place (85-degrees), free from drafts for 45 minutes or until almost double in size.
