Robin's Outstanding Dinner Rolls

Suzy Nelson


I begged for this recipe many, many years ago at a church potluck. Robin was from "the South" with twinkling eyes and a ready laugh and just about anything from her kitchen could make you groan with pleasure.
These lovely dinner rolls have saved me many times when I've wanted some homemade rolls but knew come cooking day I wouldn't be able to manage the time. I always keep a bag of Self-Rising flour in the freezer. I throw the dough together the day before and refrigerate it. No kneading is necessary at all. When everything's just about ready I plop dough into muffin tins and just pop them in the oven. Works really well on Thanksgiving!
