    BeachGirl's Note:

    For light, fluffy, faintly sweet dinner rolls, this is the best recipe..and versatile. It can be used to make cinnamon rolls, yeast coffee cakes, loaf bread, and many other uses I will be posting. These rolls freeze well, baked or unbaked. Reheating frozen baked rolls on Defrost microwave setting makes them taste just like they came hot from the oven!

      TO FORM ROLLS: Turn dough onto a floured board and roll into a log.
    12. 12
      Cut into 24 pieces, Roll each piece in your hands to form a smooth ball.

    14. 14
      Let rise about 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
    15. 15
      Place in unheated oven and turn oven to 375 degrees.

      NOTE: This can be made into 2 loaves of bread, instead of forming into rolls.

      These rolls got 5 stars from my DH, who rarely comments on anything he eats! I absolutely LOVE the fact that I can make up the dough while I have time, then just take as much as I need out of the frig, since the dough can sit in there for up to 4 days. I did them plain on day 2 and then made cinnamon rolls on day 3. Everyone wanted those cinnamon rolls (the few that were left) for breakfast the next day. Wonderful, BeachGirl!
