Easy Dinner Rolls

Easy Dinner Rolls

Edited on Jan 15, 2010

Got this recipe from a book I was reading. Made them for dinner last evening and they were easy to put together and tasted delicious. This will take about 2 1/2 hours from start to finish.


1 package dry yeast
3/4 cup warm water (110 to 115 degrees F)
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups flour, divided (I used unbleached)
1 egg
1/4 cup softened butter


1. Dissolve yeast in warm water, in your mixing bowl.
2. Using mixer on low speed, add sugar, salt and half of the flour.
3. Beat well, add egg and butter and continue mixing while adding remaing flour.
4. Cover bowl with a cloth and let dough rise in a warm place for 40 to 50 minutes (I put the bowl in the microwave, with door closed.)
5. Stir down batter.
6. Using an ice cream scoop, drop scoopfuls into greased muffin tins, (12 count size). Let rise for about another hour, until double in size.
7. Bake in a hot over (400 degrees F) for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
8. Makes 1 dozen rolls.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
