    JB Snead's Note:

    This bread dough is great for dinner rolls, but it's also fantastic for loaf, kolaches and CINNAMON ROLLS! It can be made by hand, or in a 2lb bread machine. (UPDATED!)

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      DOUGH BY HAND: Mix water, yeast and sugar. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Mix ALL of the pudding mix with the milk.
    3. 3
      Add melted butter, egg and salt. Mix well. For really soft rolls, don't use the egg; for cinnamon rolls, the egg is a must -- otherwise they flatten out (but they're still tasty!).
    4. 4
      Add yeast mixture. Mix, then knead in flour until dough is smooth.
    5. 5
      Set in a warm place for 1 hour, then punch it down. Let it rise again for another 45 minutes.
    6. 6
      DOUGH IN 2LB BREAD MACHINE: Put the ingredients in the machine in the order listed above. Use the DOUGH setting.
    7. 7
      DO NOT COOK A LOAF OF THIS IN THE BREAD MACHINE! It is a very airy bread, and it will probably ruin your bread machine! (Lesson learned the hard way -- ).
    8. 8
      TO MAKE DINNER ROLLS: Form the dough into 1.5 to 2 inch balls, and place 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet. Bake in 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden on top.
    9. 9
      TO MAKE KOLACHES: Form the dough into 1.5 to 2 inch balls. Put mini-sausage and cheese on top, then pull the dough around and wrap it up as best you can. Place 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet. Bake as for DINNER ROLLS.
    10. 10
      CINNAMON ROLLS: Roll dough to 0.25 inch thick rectangle on a floured surface. Mix 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/3 cup cinnamon and 1 cup sugar; spread evenly (as best you can) over the surface of the dough.
    11. 11
      Roll up tightly, starting from a long side. Slice at 1 to 2 inch intervals. Place slices on a greased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. (Pour a little melted butter over each one to make the rolls extra moist!).
    12. 12
      Cover and let rise 30 minutes.
    13. 13
      Bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes. Remove them as soon as they turn golden. Frost with cream cheese frosting.
