Yeast Dinner Rolls

Whether it's Thanksgiving or a dinner party, dinner rolls seem to always be a hit. These soft, warm dinner rolls are really easy to make at home and you can get your kids involved and let them help you shape the rolls. I'd recommend doubling this recipe and freezing some of the uncooked rolls so that you'll always have a batch of rolls on hand, ready to be baked in the oven. And one thing I love to do is sprinkle each roll with a little garlic salt for a nice garlicky twist.

3 cups strong bread flour
1 cup warm water
1/2 stick (2 oz.) melted unsalted butter, plus more for brushing
2 tbsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. active dry yeast
1 1/2 tsp. salt

In a measuring cup, mix the warm water, yeast, and sugar together and let it sit for 5 minutes to activate

Combine the bread flour and salt together in a bowl then add the yeast mixture and melted butter

Then knead by hand or using a stand mixer for 10 minutes, until the dough is soft and elastic

Place the dough in a bowl, cover with cling film and let it rise for 1-1/2 hours, until it doubles in size

Deflate the dough and shape into 14 equal-size dough balls then place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and let them rise for 30 minutes

Preheat your oven to 400ºF 

Bake the rolls for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown

Once they've come out of the oven brush them with butter and serve them while they're hot
