Dinner Rolls Recipe
- 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
- 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 1-1/4 cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 large eggs
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- Melted butter, optional
- 1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine milk, softened butter, eggs, sugar, salt, yeast mixture and 3 cups flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
- 2. Turn dough 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 with plastic wrap; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- 3. Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Divide and shape each portion into 12 balls. Place rolls in two greased 13x9-in. baking pans. Cover with clean kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°.
- 4. Bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. If desired, brush tops lightly with melted butter. Cool on wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 2 dozen.

"Good and easy to make, but not quite what I was hoping for. I may have overworked the dough. They turned out tougher than I wanted."
"I made these rolls for my family last Friday, substituting stick margarine for the butter and soy milk for the milk. I also omitted the tsp. sugar in which to dissolve the yeast. These were simply outstanding! And dairy free to boot! Already my wife and kids want me to make them again!Avram Herzog"
