Soft Pillowy Dinner Rolls

First Batch

OMG!! I’m so excited, I’ve finally made soft, pillowy dinner rolls. My secret – three packets of yeast, yep, that’s right, three packets, lol!! For those of you who think this is a bit much, feel free to follow the recipe that calls for just one packet. But truth be told, when I make my rolls I have to triple the ingredients. You must appreciate that food disappears at a rapid pace in my house and with these rolls being such a hit, they didn’t stand a chance.

  • 4 cup flour
  • 1 packet dry yeast
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar

  1. Place flour in a bowl along with salt and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl dissolve yeast to warm milk.
  3. Add sugar, eggs, butter and mix well.
  4. Add flour gradually, mix until a soft, sticky dough forms.
  5. Knead dough on lightly floured surface until smooth. Cover with a damp kitchen towel and allow to rise until it has doubled in size.
  6. Turn the dough onto a floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic.
  7. Allow the dough to rest ten minutes.
  8. Divide dough into twelve equal parts.
  9. Roll each part in the palm of your hands until round.
  10. Place the rolls in a greased pan (allow them to touch)
  11. Cover and place in a warm place for another ten minutes.
  12. Brush with egg wash and bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
