This week’s Works For Me Wednesday over at Shannon’s place is a greatest hits edition. According to my Statcounter, the most common reason people land at this blog by Google search is because of my easy dinner rolls recipe which was debuted in a WFMW post. So, I’m gonna post it again because I love ya’ll so much. And because you just can’t lose with these rolls. And by lose, I totally mean the pounds because these things are not calorie free. If you think that stops me from inhaling them, you just try to resist and you will get it.
Anyway, these yeast rolls are the best! Remember back in elementary school when the rolls were huge and sweet? This is the ones! They are so easy and even easier if you have a bread machine to do the kneading for you.
Easy Yeast Rolls
1 cup water
2 T butter, softened
3 1/4 cup bread flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 t salt
3 t yeast
Place all ingredients in bread pan in the order listed. Select dough cycle. When cycle is finished, grease cookie sheet. Divide dough into 12 pieces. Shape each piece into ball. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Brushes with melted butter, if desired. Cover with clean cloth; let rise 30-40 minutes or until double.**
Heat oven to 375. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush tops with melted butter again, if desired.
**My bread machine has a rising cycle built in so if I’m strapped for time, there’s no need for this step of extra rising. I just divide the dough, brush with butter and bake! They are so wonderful!
