This is the first recipe I got that I even attempted to make homemade rolls. I got the recipe from a friend long ago. They are easy to make and very tasty without having to do alot of time-consuming and tiring kneading.

  1. In a large bowl, mix 1 cup of flour, yeast, sugar, salt and powdered milk.
  2. Now add the 1-1/2 cups"hot" water and the butter; stir until the butter is melted.

Oh - thank you, thank you!!! I used to make this all the time, but lost the recipe in a series of transitions and have been searching for it.... I'm soooo happy to find it again (so is my hubby!) It's wonderful bread - I've used other recipes, after losing it, and none compare to me - I made it tonight and it was as wonderful as ever. It's so soft and the flavor is just the perfect balance - and I love the denser texture of it. And to boot, it's the easiest thing to make. I love it! Thank you again!
