Great recipe- nice and fluffy rolls. After reading the reviews on this recipe, and seeing that many had trouble getting them to rise; I decided to try this recipe changing a couple of the methods used. 1st I proofed my yeast using the 3/4 cup water called for in the recipe- get it hot out of the tap- if it feels too warm to take a shower in then it's too hot and will kill the yeast. Put 1 tpblspn of the 1/2cup sugar and the 5tsp of yeast into the warm water, and give it 5 minutes. The yeast is ready when it's foamy if it doesn't get foamy try again, and if it doesn't get foamy a 2nd time- your yeast is probably too old. I never use the stove to heat ingredients for bread recipes- it's too hard to control the heat. Heat the milk in the microwave, 30 to 50 seconds- again if you stick your pinky in it and it feels too hot to take a shower in- it's too hot. I then mixed my milk, yeast water and sugar and eggs. I put the salt in with the flour, and followed the recipe exactly after that. I made my rolls quite a bit smaller, and got 36 nice sized perfect rolls. The whole family agrees this is one of the best roll recipe they've ever eaten.
Note to Bowie 112- most roll or bread dough can be frozen before the last rising. Shape as desired, put on wax paper on baking sheet,spray the wax paper with cooking spray to make frozen rolls easier to lift, when frozen put into zip locked freezer bag. Pull out the number you wish to use in the morning, put on baking sheet,
