I made this recipe, with a few modifications, for the first time on Thanksgiving. It was just my immediate family (and I had a roll of crescents for back up!) so I figured why not experiment. They turned out great and I will use again I am sure. We are a wheat bread family, but I have always wanted a soft white dinner roll recipe for special meals. (I may experiment with wheat flour for everyday rolls sometime.) I put the warm water and yeast in the bowl of my bread machine to proof. I then scalded the milk in a small sauce pan, dissolved the sugar, salt and butter (instead of shortening) and added this mixture to the machine. I added 1 tsp of vanilla to the recipe for sweetness and used 3.5 cups of A/P flour instead of 3 1/3. I set the machine on dough setting for 1.5 pound loaf size. My machine took just under 2 hours to complete, and the dough came out perfectly, no mess or worry about rising. My 5 year old daughter and I then made 1.5 inch balls and placed in two round cake pans that I lightly buttered, close but not touching. Each pan held 10 rolls. I covered with a towel and let rise for appx. 1 hour until they doubled in size, filled the pan and were touching side by side. I baked at 400 for 15 minutes then brushed the tops with butter. They were really wonderful and great addition to the table (and leftovers!). I realize this is a big deviation from the recipe, but for those of you who want to simplify things with a bread machine, I hope this helps.
