Recipe by LonghornMama
From a Favorite Brand Name Recipes book. I've made too many yeast roll recipes to count but these are my hands down favorite. I make them for all holiday meals and whenever bringing dinner to someone. It's really easy with the bread machine and everyone loves them. It's a lot of butter but don't scrimp, they're well worth it! I've doubled the recipe and either baked in two pans or in a 13x9 pan. If you do this, just watch the baking time and make sure the middle rolls are cooked through.

I tested about four different dinner roll recipes before finally deciding that this was the best one. I was a little nervous at first because it seemed that they weren't rising fast enough, but I was patient and waited until they had doubled before putting them in the oven. The end result was a light and buttery dinner roll. Took me straight back to my childhood. This recipe's a keeper!
