We really enjoy these for dinner. They are lightly sweet and buttery flavored. They are also, a light bread, and not heavy. I got this recipe from "The Bread Lover's Cookbook" by: Elizabeth Hensberger. These recipes are always successful.

How To Make virginia light rolls (bread machine)

  • 1
    Place the ingredients in the pan according to the order in the manufacturer's instructions. Program for the Dough cycle; press Start. The dough ball will be soft, but add no more than 2-3 extra Tbsp of flour, as needed, if you think it is necessary.
  • 2
    Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. When the machine beebs at the end of the cycle, press Stop and unplug the machine. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough in half, then roll each half into a 2-3 inch cylinder. With a metal dough scraper or a chef's knife, cut the dough into 8 equal portions. Place the rolls in two rows of 8 with their long sides touching. Brush some melted button on tops of the rolls.
  • 3
    Repeat with the second cylinder, making a total of 16 equal portions. Shape each portion like a miniature loaf by patting it into an oval, then rolling up from a short side to small compact cylinder about 4 inches long.
  • 4
    Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature, away from drafts until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes.
  • 5
    20 minutes before baking, preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  • 6
    Place the baking sheet in the center of the oven and bake for 25-28 minutes, until golden brown. Remove the rolls from the pan and cool on a rack. Serve warm, or cool to room temperature and re-heat.
