2 Tbsp
3/4 tsp
3 c

Directions Step-By-Step

Start by activating the yeast, in a bowl put the warm water and yeast.
Heat Milk & Butter in Microwave for 1 minute (do not boil).
Add to the yeast and water, egg, sugar salt and one cup of the flour, stir just a little.
Add milk and butter (this cant be hot or it will kill yeast), stir and switch to a rubber spatula and add remaining flour and stir until you have a sticky but knead-able dough!
Pour out on floured surface and knead for 6 – 7 minutes, only adding a little flour if it gets to sticky.
Spray a bowl with butter spray, make a nice ball and put it in the bowl, cover and let it set for 2 hours or it doubles in size.
Now after dough has risen remove the cover and punch down put on floured board and pat with hands shaping it in to a square. Cut in to 12 and place in greased pan they can touch. (for greased pan, I use non stick butter flavor spray in can)
After you place them in the pan simply let them rise approximately 20 minutes. Then bake for 25 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

    These sound great but I'm confused about the flour instructions. The recipe calls for 3 cups. In step 3 you say to use 1 cup of flour and then in step 4 you say to use the 3rd cup. Where does the 2nd cup come in?

    Marie, I didn't notice the temperature or the amount of time they are baked, DID I OVER LOOK THAT PART? They sound really simple and easy, and looks amazing, so I want to try them. I am making Annette's & up biscuits this morning for breakfast.

    No one overlooked anything, I posted this later last night and was pretty tired I apologize..... I have updated that part, but changes are pending at moment. In the mean time it should not say add third cup of flour, it should say add remaining flour, and oven temp is 350 for 25 minutes in greased pan. Thanks and again sorry bout that. :)

    No need to apologize. We've all done it a time or two. That's what's nice about us being able to comment and help each other out. Thanks for the great recipe. I love easy and quick recipes! As Rose Mary mentioned, I just posted one for 7-up biscuits and I have a feeling if you love these rolls, you may love them too. Check them out if you have a chance. 7-up Biscuits-Annette's

    I have left out parts of a recipe many times Marie, it is a common mistake, when you are posting late at night or have had a long day, and I REALLY APPRECIATE WHEN SOMEONE FINDS AN OMISSION OR MISTAKE, and the ladies here are always willing to help. The 7 up biscuits are amazing. My husband loved them so much, he ate them cold, and said that they tasted like the ones from KFC. Imagine that. I think they are better than KFC, but that was my husbands way of saying that they were really good. It is a great recipe, and your dinner rolls looks just as appetizing. I can't wait to give them a try.
