classic dinner rolls


Servings 4-6
Total Time 1 hr

  • 2 to 2 1/4 cup all purpose flour or bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 envelope rapid rise yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons) or if you are like me I buy bread machine yeast by the jar... and that will also work:)
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water

Combine 3/4 cup flour, undissolved yeast, and salt in a large bowl (or the mixer bowl).  

Heat milk, water, and butter until very warm (120 to 130 degrees F).  Add to flour mixture and beat two minutes on medium speed of electric mixer, scraping the bowl occasionally.

Add 1/4 cup of flour and beat an additional 2 minutes at high speed.

Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough and knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic (or using a dough hook on your mixer at a low speed), about 8 to 10 minutes.  Cover and let rest 10 minutes.

If until this point you have only used a mixer then dump the dough onto a floured surface, kneading a few times. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces and shape into balls.  Place in greased 8-inch round pan.

Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size.  About 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 

Bake for 20 minutes or until done (if they brown to quickly just add foil).  Remove from pan and brush with additional butter if desired.  Serve warm.  Enjoy!!!
