My first attempt at homemade rolls, and boy were they good! I don't have a bread machine, so I warmed the milk in the microwave for 45 seconds and tested with my finger (if it's too hot for bath water, let it cool a little or it'll kill the yeast). Add it to a big bowl along with the sugar then the yeast (Use one of those active yeast packets and they rise plenty). Let that sit until it doubles and looks bubbly. Melt the butter in the microwave for about 45 seconds and again tested with your finger (same principle). Add the butter to the yeast mixture and two eggs, slightly beaten and mix. In a separate bowl, mix flour and salt. Add flour mixture to yeast mixture three heaping tablespoons at a time until all is used (use it all, even if it means using the flour mixture on the board as you knead). Knead for 5 minutes, put in a buttered bowl, cover with a clean, damp dishtowel and allow to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes. Punch down, and separate into balls (they rise a lot so small balls will yield normal-sized rolls). Put on buttered cookie sheet, cover again and let rise another 45 minutes. Brush with melted butter and bake at 350 until golden brown. Yummy!!
