Dinner Rolls

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Barb G.

This is a great dinner roll recipe as you can prepare it ahead of time and then make out the rolls let rise and bake in time for dinner. I use this recipe a lot for that reason. This recipe comes from my Better Homes and Gardens 1953 cookbook.

This is the same recipe my Mother has used for over 55 years. These rolls are about as fool proof as can be! I made a double batch for our Thanksgiving this year. Even with all the other food, 17 people devoured these as fast as they came out of the oven-we have 8 rolls left this evening. I used my KA and the dough works up beautifully. I made the dough on Tuesday and let sit out for about 40 minutes before working them into the balls for rolls. Thanks again for posting this recipe!
