These rolls are hit anytime, but they’re especially great for holiday dinners. They’re so soft and buttery. At our house we call them butter buns. Yum!
Buttery, Soft Dinner Rolls
1 Cup water
1 Large egg
3 1/4 Cups bread flour
4 Tablespoons sugar
3 Tablespoons dry milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 Cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
Follow the instructions that came with your bread machine in terms of what ingredients to add first. Use the dough setting of your bread machine.
11/30/2014 Update: If you’re short on time you can replace the 1 1/2 teaspoons of regular yeast with 2 teaspoons of rapid rise yeast. Be sure to use the quick dough setting along with the rapid rise yeast.
When the dough is done put it on a lightly floured surface and divide in half. The goal is to get about 18 dinner rolls of appropriate size and shape. Put the rolls on a greased cookie sheet.
Cover the rolls with a clean, light-weight kitchen towel and let the rolls rise for half an hour. Then remove the towel and put the rolls in a 375 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes. (I baked mine for 12 minutes.)
Move the cooked rolls to a rack to cool.
