    HeatherFeather's Note:

    Adapted from Taste of Home, from one of the My Mom's Most Memorable Meal articles. I made these for Thanksgiving and they were very good - light, fluffy, and they make a large amount. After cooking, brush with a little extra melted butter while still warm to give them shiny tops, if desired. Plan ahead as these have 2 rises and you will also need two 9x13" pans.

    1. 1
      Combine yeast with water and 1 tsp sugar, set aside for 5-10 minutes or until frothy (if yeast doesn't froth, then it is dead- either you need fresh yeast or your water was too hot and killed the yeast).
    2. 2
      Add warm milk (again- warm, but not too hot or yeast will die), melted cooled butter,remaining 1/3 cup sugar, eggs, and just 3 cups of the flour.
    3. 3
      Beat mixture until smooth- either with a dough hook in an electric mixer or using a spoon.
    4. 4
      Next, this time using a spoon even if you have a mixer, stir in enough flour to form a soft dough ball (depending upon the hunidity of the day, you will need more or less flour).
    5. 5
      Turn dough onto a floured board and knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes, additional additional flour if needed to keep from sticking.
    6. 6
      Place ina a lightly greased large bowl and then flip the dough over to coat top; cover with plastic wrap that has been greased (I use nonstick spray) and let rise in a warm place until doubled- about 1 hour.
    7. 7
      Punch dough down, then place ona lightly floured board and divide inhalf.
    8. 8
      Now divide each half into 12 pieces, shaping each piece into a ball.
    9. 9
      Place 12 dough balls each into two 9x13" greased baking pans.
    10. 10
      Cover as before and let rise until doubled, 30 minutes to an hour.
    11. 11
      Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 20-25 minutes or untilgolden brown.
    12. 12
      Best served warm.

      I made these rolls today and I must say they are fabulous and taste great having a buttery taste.They were easy to make and I have made several other dinner roll recipes on this website but this recipe is by far, '"the best" one I have ever made. I am a seasoned cook and cook and bake everything from scratch.
      thanks for the recipe
