Mom's Holiday Dinner Rolls

Loving this recipe - I've been looking for a basic dinner roll recipe, and this one looks so buttery and delicious, yum!
  • 1 package regular dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 3/4 cup milk, scalded
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups flour (approximately)

  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water in large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Scald milk in microwave. I put it in a 4 cup glass measuring cup & cook on high for a couple of minutes. You want it to boil but not boil over. While milk is hot, add butter, stir it a bit until the butter melts in the hot milk. (I accidentally used a whole stick of butter today & it turned out just fine.)
  3. After milk & butter cools for a few minutes, stir the egg, salt & milk mixture into the yeast.
  4. Using a fork, stir in sugar & 2 cups flour to form a batter.
  5. Add enough additional flour to make dough easy to handle.Knead dough on floured surface for five minutes. Add additional flour, if needed. Place dough in greased bowl covered with a damp cloth, in a warm place, to rise until doubled, at least 1 hour.
  6. Punch dough down and shape into rolls. Place in greased 9x13 pan & cover & allow to rise again.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter & serve.
