To dress up everyday dinner rolls, our Test Kitchen brushes herbed butter over the dough, then forms accordion rolls. The aroma while baking is incredible!

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water with 1 teaspoon sugar. Add milk, melted butter, eggs, salt, 3 cups flour and remaining sugar; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down; place on a lightly floured surface. Divide into four portions. Roll each portion into a 14x6-in. rectangle. Combine softened butter and Italian seasoning; spread over dough.
  4. Score each rectangle widthwise at 2-in. intervals. Using marks as a guide, fold dough accordion-style back and forth along score lines. Cut folded dough into six 1-in. pieces. Place pieces cut side down in greased muffin cups. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  5. Preheat oven to 375°. Uncover and let stand at room temperature 10 minutes before baking. Brush with egg white. Bake 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.
Basil & Oregano Dinner Rolls: Substitute 1/2 teaspoon each dried oregano and basil for Italian seasoning. Fresh Herb Dinner Rolls: Substitute 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley and 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme for Italian seasoning.
