1 Hour Soft Dinner Rolls – Soft, buttery dinner rolls done in just an hour! If you love homemade bread or rolls, you need to make these!
So… we started decorating for Christmas last night. ***gasp*** I know I know I know, I said we wouldn’t decorate til after Thanksgiving. But first of all, you wouldn’t believe the ordeal we went through to get this Christmas tree. We bought a real tree last year but decided we wanted to get an artificial tree this year. So after some searching, we found the perfect tree. 9 feet of beautiful pre-lit branches with the round needles you know, not the flat papery ones? It was gorgeous.
One problem: we have 8-foot ceilings. Ummmm….. oops. Ahhhh! I cannot convey my disappointment to you. So I shed a tear and we returned it to the store. We then tried to find a decent 7.5 foot tree but everywhere we looked had a terrible selection. I think we went to 8 stores. We even looked online. Who shops for a Christmas tree online?!?! Us apparently. But we finally found one last night (in person) that we thought would suffice. We put it up to make sure we liked it, and….. started decorating it. I mean, it was already up for heaven’s sake! It only has lights and ribbon on it at the moment. But it’s gonna be lovely. I think.
So weekly success number one: Christmas tree. Success number two: dinner rolls. Unlike the Christmas tree ordeal, these delicious dinner rolls were no fuss, no hassle, and came out perfectly after one attempt. We had them with our Orange Teriyaki Salmon (one of last week’s big successes!) and we have plenty left over this week so I’ve been having them for lunch and with our dinners. These homemade rolls are so easy and so SO yummy, and buttery, and ahhhhhhhhh I love bread. If you love homemade bread or rolls, you need to make these! And if you’ve never tried to make homemade dinner rolls before, this is just the recipe to get you started!!
1 Hour Soft Dinner Rolls
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup milk, warm
- 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups flour
- In the bowl of your stand mixer, add butter, milk, and yeast. Do not stir. Allow to sit for 5 minutes. Add sugar, eggs, salt, and flour to the bowl. Mix on low speed with the paddle attachment for a few seconds until just combined. Stop mixing once combined and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
- Switch to dough hook attachment and knead for 10 minutes on medium speed. Cover the dough and allow to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes, until dough has doubled in size.
- Preheat oven to 375. When dough has risen, roll dough into balls. You may have between 12 and 15 depending on the size you make the rolls. Grease a large baking sheet with cooking spray and place dough balls 2 inches apart. (I do this so that they don't share sides and have to pull them apart later. I just think they look prettier this way. If you don't care, you can place them in a 9x13 pan instead!) Bake for 13-15 minutes until barely browned. Do not over cook! Store in airtight container or ziplock bag.
