My mother worked to perfect this recipe for a couple of years. Now we all can benefit from her experiments. This dough works very well for making cinnamon caramel rolls, too.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Freshly baked dinner rolls are always tasty and this recipe makes an excellent dough. These are tender, fluffy yeast rolls. Or, you can smear the dough with softened butter, cinnamon, and sugar to make yummy cinnamon rolls. It's a classic recipe you'll use over and over. Easy to make, skip buying the frozen rolls and try these yeast dinner rolls the next time you want fresh bread. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
