Easy Dinner Rolls

For this recipe do not use quick rising dry yeast, since it is designed to raise breads quickly.

This dough requires no kneading, and can be made up to 4 days ahead. Just take it out of the refrigerator, let rise and bake for perfect rolls every time.

Ingredients

1 c
water, warm
2 pkg
active dry yeast
1/2 c
butter, melted
1/2 c
sugar
3
eggs
1 tsp
salt
4 - 4 1/2 c
unbleached all-purpose flour

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine the warm water and yeast in a large bowl. Let the mixture stand until yeast is foamy, about 5 mins.
2
Stir in butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Beat in flour, 1cup at a time, until dough is too stiff to mix (some flour may not be needed). Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or up to 4 days.
3
Grease a 13x9-in. Baking pan. Turn the chilled dough out onto a lightly floured board. Divide dough into 24 equal-size pieces. Roll each piece into a smooth round ball; place balls in even rows in the prepared pan. Cover and let dough balls rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
4
Preheat oven to 375. Bake until rolls are golden brown, 15-20 mins. Brush warm rolls with melted butter, if desired. Break rolls apart to serve.
