Perfect Dinner Rolls
Serves: 24
This recipe makes 2 dozen soft, fluffy dinner rolls. You can also flatten out balls of dough for delicious hamburger buns!
  • 2¼ cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup butter, softened
  • ⅓ cup powdered nondairy creamer
  • 1¼ teaspoons salt
  • 6 to 7 cups bread flour
  1. In a large bowl, sprinkle the yeast into the warm water and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the sugar, butter, creamer, salt, and 5 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Slowly add just enough remaining flour to form a soft dough that pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  3. Knead on a floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. (Or, if using a stand mixer, knead with a dough hook for approximately 5 minutes.)
  4. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to coat. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled. Punch down.
  5. Divide the dough into 24 equal pieces. Shape into balls (or oblongs if you prefer) and place about an inch apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  6. Cover and allow the rolls to rise until doubled.
  7. Heat oven to 375 F.
  8. Bake for approximately 12 minutes, or until they are golden brown on top.
  9. Cool on a rack.
