Dinner Rolls

Dinner rollsFast buttery dinner rolls. These won’t last long at the dinner table and if there are any left they’ll vanish shortly thereafter. They almost have a tea biscuit like texture.


  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • 1-1/2 tbsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 tsp Sugar, granulated
  • 1/2 cup Butter, melted
  • 1/2 Sugar, granulated
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Table Salt
  • 4 cups All Purpose Flour (sub 1 cup with whole wheat flour for whole wheat rolls)


  1. Prepare a 13 x 9 inch baking dish by lightly greasing it.
  2. In a large bowl combine warm water with yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar. Set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Mix combining butter, sugar, eggs and salt.
  4. Add in the yeast mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing between each cup. When the dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl, you’ve added enough flour.
  6. Place the dough on a lightly floured clean working surface and knead for a minute or two.
  7. Divide the dough into 24 equal pieces, then roll each piece into a smooth round ball.
  8. Place the dough balls into the greased pan.
  9. Cover the rolls and let them rise for about 60-90 minutes, or until doubled.
  10. Preheat your oven to 375F.
  11. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown.
