My Favorite Rolls

READY IN: 1hr 3mins
Recipe by PrimQuilter

A nice yeasty roll made from scratch. This has been my contribution to holiday dinners for friends and family for a number of years. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do ! I use a stand mixer starting with the paddle for liquid, when it starts to get thick, switch to your dough hook.

I made this for the "My 3 Chefs Fall 2008" challenge. I have been making bread and rolls for many years and the 1/3 cup of yeast seemed like alot. So I cut way back on the amount. I also just added what felt right for the amount of flour. But I would like to see the recipe with cup amounts and not pounds and ounces. IMO it would be easier for a new cook. They did turn out very crusty and yummy but I left them a little to long for the second rising and they overrose from so much yeast and fell LOL
