Simply-a-Must Dinner Rolls
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + rising Bake: 10 min.
- 5-1/2 to 6 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon quick-rise yeast
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 cup 2% milk
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- In a large bowl, combine 3 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat milk and oil to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add eggs; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Divide dough into thirds. Roll each portion into a 12-in. circle; brush with butter. Cut each circle into 12 wedges.
- Roll up wedges from the wide end and place point side down 2 in. apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Curve ends to form crescents. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
- Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks.

Experimented with this recipe before Thanksgiving among others and it was the winner. Did cut back a touch on the sugar. Split into fourths to roll out and my family has devoured every batch!

These were good. I used a little too much sugar in this recipe, but otherwise they turned out fantastic. I can't wait for another dinner where I can make these as a side.

This was a fantastic recipe. I let them rise a little billte longer, used 1/2 cup of butter instead of oil and bushed with butter before placing in the over.They are GREAT!!!!!

At what point should the rolls be frozen? Should I bake all rolls as directed or freeze the dough after dividing onto thirds? We baked 1/3 of the dough and froze the other 2/3rds.

Can the rollsbe made with applesauce instead of the oil?

This is a delicious recipe! Faster than most roll recipes since the dough only has to rise one time.

I made these buns and was not happy with the results at all.First off I found the buns burned on the bottom. My second batch I turned the oven down by 50 degrees. We didn't like the texture. I followed the recipe both times to a tee. Is something missing? Also I used two different brands of yeast,thinking it was my yeast.
