These rolls are perfect to make when you’re having company for dinner or serving a holiday meal. The day before, mix and knead the dough, then refrigerate it. The next day, shape the rolls and let them rise, then bake just before dinner. If you have any left over, I’ve found the baked rolls also freeze well.

  1. In a small bowl, combine boiling water and bran; set aside. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in the butter, sugar, salt, dill, eggs, 2 cups flour and bran mixture; beat until smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5-7 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into thirds. Shape each portion into 12 balls; place in three greased 9-in. round baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
  4. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 3 dozen.
