Double Quick Dinner Rolls

Dianne Ennis


My mother-in-law gave this recipe to me. She is a wonderful cook. This is a dinner roll you will be proud to serve anytime of the year. They melt in your mouth and eating just one will be impossible to do. The tops are golden and the bottom a little crisp. They are wonderful with hot gravey, just buttered or with cranberry sauce on them. This recipe is so easy and fast you will want to make it more often than not. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
It looks like there are a lot of steps and really it isn't. I just wanted to be very clear on the steps and what works for me.

pinch tips: How to Knead Dough



12 (do not double recipe)


10 Min


20 Min


1 pkage pkg
1 packag active dry yeast
1 c
warm water (not hot as it will "kill" the yeast)
2 Tbsp
egg (beaten)
2 1/4 c
2 Tbsp
vegetable oil
1 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

Pour packet of yeast into a large mixing bowl. Add 1 Tbsp. Sugar and the 1 cup of warm water. Stir and let sit. It will bubble and rise. By the time you do the other steps it will be ready.
In another bowl mix together:
Flour, salt and sugar.
Mix it around a little and set it aside.
Put the 1 egg and 2 Tbsps. of oil into a glass measuring cup and beat together. Set aside
Now, pour only 1/2 of the dry ingredients INTO the bowl with the yeast.
Stir and scrape down the sides with a wooden spoon. When it is all mixed well, make a little well and then add the egg and oil, stir and then add the rest on the dry ingredients.
Again, stir and scrape down the sides of the bowl making it into a ball of dough. It will be wet and sticky. DO NOT add more flour.
Cover and place in a WARM but not hot place. Let it rise to double in size...about 20/30 minutes depending on how warm your kitchen is.
After it has doubled in size, punch down and pour it out onto a lightly floured cutting board.
With your hands, NOT a rolling pin, pat the dough to about 1 to 1 & 1/2 inch thick.
Use a biscute cutter to cut out 12 circles.
I pour about 1 TBSP of oil on the bottom of a 11x9x2" metal baking pan.
"Drag" the bottom of the cut roll in the pan making sure it gets "oiled." Do this with each of the cut dough circles.
The closer they are together in the pan the higher they will rise.
Cover and let rise to double in size. About 15 to 20 minutes. You will be able to tell.
After they have risen, place in a preheated oven at 375* for 20 minutes.
After you remove them from the oven, butter the tops and let it melt down the sides. Serve hot and watch your family enjoy!
Rising Tip: If your kitchen is cool, fill a large bowl with HOT water and set the baking pan on top of it covered with a clean, lite tea towel.
Also, do not use "metal" mixing bowls to let the dough rise, they get too warm and the dough may start to "cook" and stick to the bottom of the bowl. Not good..
