Fresh baked rolls at a dinner party make a big difference but I never seem to have enough time to make them along with all of the other dinner preparations. These yeast rolls are the perfect solution to that problem. I make the dough the day before I want to serve them and cold proof them overnight in the refrigerator. They turn out light and fluffy and delicious every time.
Best American Dinner Rolls
¾ cup whole milk 2 eggs
6 Tablespoons butter, melted 2 ¼ teaspoons yeast
6 Tablespoons sugar 3 cups flour
1 ½ teaspoons salt
Grease 2 nine inch round cake pans. Pat dough into a 12x10 inch rectangle. Roll up like a cylinder and divide into 16 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and arrange in cake pans. (1 in the center and 7 around the edges.) I made 4 batches of rolls at once so I put mine on cookie sheets instead of cake pans.
Cover pans with plastic wrap and cover wrap with foil. Refrigerate 24 – 48 hours.
To Bake: Remove rolls 6-7 hours before baking. Remove foil but leave plastic wrap. Let rise. Brush with melted butter before baking. Bake 14-18 minutes at 400. Cool in pans for 3 minutes.
I am such a sucker for freshly baked bread. These are really good yeast rolls and I love the fact that I can get them ready a day in advance and bake and serve them warm on the day of a party. These rolls also freeze really well so make a double batch and freeze some for later.
