Sweet Dinner Rolls
I also use this same dough after the first rising to make cinnamon buns, sticky buns or danishes.
I know this recipe seems really lengthy and complicated but I have tried to give you the best tips and instructions that I could to help you be a successful baker. Hope you will give them a try and let me know how you like them.
P.S. They freeze well too. Just pop them in a 350*oven for 15-20 minutes to warm back up.

How to Make Sweet Dinner Rolls
- Mix first 4 ingredient together and let sit for about 5 minutes until foamy. I start this in my mixer bowl.
- Next heat the milk and butter in a microwave safe dish for about 1 1/2 minutes or until butter is mostly melted and milk is hot but not boiling. If dish is too hot to handle with your bare hands the milk will be too hot and you will need to let it cool a bit.
- Next add the salt, egg and sugar to the milk and butter. Add all of this to the mixer bowl.
- With a dough hook attachment start adding the flour a cup at a time. Dough should come away from the sides of the bowl when it is mixed properly. The dough should be soft but not stick to your fingers when pinched. If it is too sticky add a little more flour.
- When dough is mixed well. Cover with a cloth or plastic wrap and let rise for about 45 minutes until doubled.
- Spray your pans with non-stick baking spray. Butter your hands well and shape dough into rolls. Place into the prepared pans and cover and let rise again for another 30-45 minutes.
- Bake in a 350* oven for 20 minutes or until light golden brown on the tops. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter if desired.
- Wrap the rolls in plastic wrap when cooled. Make sure that they are wrapped well to prevent freezer burn if they make it that far.
