Rich and Tender American Dinner Rolls
                      America’s Test Kitchen

I love hot-out-of-the-oven dinner rolls.


At least a half-sheet or more than a muffin tin depending on the form you give them.


  1¼ cups warm milk
10 tbsp butter
1 egg
4½ cups flour (bread and/or all-purpose)
2 tbsp honey or sugar
1 tbsp yeast
1½ tsp salt


1. Warm milk in microwave about 1 minute on high; melt stick of butter (the other 2 tbsp are for later) in microwave about 1 minute. Beat egg, sugar, salt, yeast adding milk and then butter. Place in mixing bowl and use hook to mix with 4 cups of flour. Add additional flour until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Mix or knead 5 more minutes.

2. Turn out into a buttered bowl and cover with plastic wrap until dough doubles, about 1 hour.

3. Make (about 24) rolls using 1 and ½ half sheets. Brush with melted butter. Cover with plastic and set aside to double.

4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake until golden, 20-25 minutes.
