Sweet Dinner Rolls Recipe @pinch

These sweet dinner rolls are perfect for a weeknight dinner or holiday meal. They're rich and slightly dense with a subtle sweetness. A touch of salt balances out the flavors. We were able to get 2 dozen rolls. If you need 3 dozen, make them slightly smaller. My family and friends love these dinner rolls. They are slightly sweet and are so light. My kids didn't think it was Sunday dinner without these on the table. I also use this same dough after the first rising to make cinnamon buns, sticky buns, or danishes. I know this recipe seems lengthy and complicated, but I have tried to give you the best tips and instructions that I could to help you be a successful baker. Hope you will give them a try and let me know how you like them.P.S. They freeze well too. Just pop them in a 350 F oven for 15-20 minutes to warm them back up.

Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Other Breads Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 1/2 cup(s) warm water
  • 2 tablespoon(s) quick-rise yeast
  • 1/2 cup(s) plus 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • divided
  • 1 tablespoon(s) instant potato flakes
  • dry
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) milk
  • 1/2 cup(s) butter
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 6-8 cup(s) bread flour
Intructions :
  • Mix together warm water
  • quick-rise yeast
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • and potato flakes. Let sit for about 5 minutes until foamy. I start this in my mixer bowl.
  • Next
  • heat the milk and butter in a microwave-safe dish for about 1 1/2 minutes or until the butter is mostly melted and the milk is hot but not boiling. If the dish is too hot to handle with your bare hands
  • the milk will be too hot and you will need to let it cool a bit.
  • Next
  • add the salt
  • egg
  • and remaining 1/2 cup of sugar to the milk and butter. Add all of this to the mixer bowl.
  • With a dough hook attachment
  • start adding the flour a cup at a time.
  • The dough should come away from the sides of the bowl when it is mixed properly. The dough should be soft but not stick to your fingers when pinched. If it is too sticky
  • add a little more flour.
  • When the dough is mixed well
  • cover with a cloth or plastic wrap. Let rise for about 45 minutes until doubled.
  • Spray your pans with non-stick baking spray. Butter your hands well and shape the dough into rolls. Place into the prepared pans. Cover and let rise again for another 30-45 minutes.
  • Bake in a 350 F oven for 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown on the tops.
  • Remove from oven and brush with melted butter if desired.
  • Wrap the rolls in plastic wrap when cooled. Make sure that they are wrapped well to prevent freezer burn if they make it that far.
