Cuisine American
Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 12 minutes
Servings 32 dinner rolls


  • 2 cups warm water if it is too hot or too cold...you will kill the yeast. So make sure it is warm
  • 2 TBS yeast
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs whipped lightly
  • 3/4 cup melted butter or do 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups All Purpose or Bread flour works may need more or less depending on dough.
  • 1/2-1 cup flour to use when you shape the dinner rolls before you bake them


  1. First mix:
  2. cups warm water ( if it is too hot or too cold...you will kill the yeast. So make sure it is warm)
  3. TBS yeast
  4. /2 cup sugar
  5. Give it a few minutes in the bowl, to make sure your yeast is working.
  6. Then add:
  7. eggs whipped lightly
  8. /4 cup melted butter
  9. teaspoon salt
  10. Mix well....
  11. Start to whisk in the flour one cup at a time ( for a total of 6 cups)
  12. You will need to switch over to a spoon to mix with, on about cup 4 of flour.
  13. Dough WILL be sticky, scrap down the sides of the bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a towel...I use both.
  14. Set aside in a warm place, (like a sunny window seat) and allow to raise. Till doubled in size. ( if you are in a hurry let rise 20 mins other wise let it rise 60 mins). Works best to wait the full 60 mins. But I let it rise as long as 3 hours before.
  15. Take off the plastic wrap, punch down to get the air out. You will need to dust with flour.
  16. Take out HALF the dough, spread on floured counter top. With your hands make into a circle. Keep dusting with flour so it is easy to work with, do the same with the other half of dough. I have found it is just easier to work with only half at a time.
  17. Cut into wedges, and roll up in to crescent roll shape. Or you can just make balls in the shape of dinner rolls.
  18. Place them on a greased pan, Bake 400 degrees 10-12 mins. If baking two pans switch the rack they are on in the oven half way thru baking, for even cooking times.
  19. Once cooked, brush a bit of butter on top to give them a nice shine. Take off baking sheet, cool on cooling rack.
  20. Last, but not least enjoy!
