Beginner's Dinner Rolls


Skip the purchased rolls - homemade are SO much better, and easy when you use our Beginner's recipe!

-- Serves
SKILL LEVEL 12 rolls
2 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 (2-1/4 tsp.) packet Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk (whole, 2%, 1% OR skim)
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine

Combine 3/4 cup flour, sugar, dry yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl and stir until blended. Combine milk, water and butter in a small microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on HIGH in 15 second increments until very warm but not hot to the touch  (120° to 130°F.  Butter won’t melt completely). Add to flour mixture.

Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg and 1/4 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in just enough of the remaining flour (1 to 1-1/4 cups) so that the dough will form into a ball. 

Knead  on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic and springs back when lightly pressed with 2 fingers, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover with a towel; let rest for 10 minutes.

Cut dough into 12 equal pieces; shape into balls using your hands. Place in greased  8-inch round or square pan.  Cover with towel; let rise in warm place  until doubled in size, about 30 minutes .

Bake in preheated 375ºF oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan by running a knife around the edges and invert onto wire rack; brush with additional melted butter, if desired. Serve warm.

26.April.2020 -- since there is no date associated with the previous comment, I, too am wondering about the egg??
Reply from Make Good: Hi there, thank you for your comment! The recipe is currently being updated to include an egg in the ingredient list. However, for those who are allergic to eggs, an egg can also be omitted with successful results. Enjoy!
