1 (.25 ounce) package
active dry yeast
warm water (110 degrees F (43 degrees C))
3 1/3 cups
use veg oil on hands when rolling the balls, the rolls will brown even, and will stay soft when cooled, if any is leftover. great recipe
I only gave this 3 stars because although they were good when just out of the oven, they go hard quickly and for the time needed I would make my regular bun recipe.
Brownie, these were excellent. Very similar to my Grandma's rolls - the ones she'd make without a recipe she made them so often :) The only change I made was to use buttermilk instead of the milk. It added the nice tang. I also used half butter, half shortening (butter flavored Crisco) and they turned out lovely with a nice crumb, tender and soft. Also, I left my dough very sticky.. a bit less flour, so reserve that last 1/3 cup to add a couple tablespoons at a time at the end of the mixing cycle in my Kitchenaid and gave it a 5 minute knead. It helps to lighten them a bit. I didn't make them cloverleaf style, but rather made 12 rolls in a 13x9 pan. Brushed them with a bit of melted butter after baking and yikes.. they were gone in a flash! Thank you for sharing - this is definitely a keeper.
I have never made dinner rolls before so I found this one to start with. I have made these about 5 times now and they are so good! Just a tip, i grease the bowl with a cooking spray and then once the dough is in the bowl, i spray the dough with the spray too- then I am not trying to turn it over. The dough will rise bigger if put in an especially warm place in the kitchen- I use the stove top on one of the rings near the one used for heating the milk. Great recipe!
brownie, these rolls were excellent. I used the recipe just as you gave it. The family loved them and tells me I need to make them again.
Made these today to accompany Split Pea and Ham soup. They were super easy to make and were a huge hit! Next time I will use less sugar and will lower the oven temp. I am working with a new oven and haven't discovered its' lil quirks as of yet.
My fiance and I made these together for our family Thanksgiving dinner and went by the recipe except we doubled it making two pans full . They turned out perfectly . I will use this recipe again for sure :)
Made these in the bread machine twice now and I can't stop eating them! They are wonderful! Thank you for a great recipe!
