I rotate on Sunday’s between making sourdough bread and homemade dinner rolls. I love them both, but I REALLY like these rolls. If I have enough time on Sunday, I’ll make these. (Check out all my family recipes here)

I serve rolls or bread with almost all of our dinners. If someone doesn’t like the main dish, I always have salad and bread!

And I’ve included the nutrition information, because I DO like to eat dinner with my family, and I STILL want to count calories. Counting calories and still being able to enjoy the food with your family is the most flexible way to reach your weight loss goals.

This recipe has been my go-to for decades, and it ALWAYS turns out!

The steps are simple!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups hot tap water
  • 2/3 cup powdered milk
  • 1 tablespoon quick rise yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter flavored Crisco
  • 1 medium egg
  • 5 1/2 cups Bread flour

Instructions

  • Dissolve powdered milk and yeast into hot tap water (not boiling water.) Let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix with a stand mixer paddle or dough hook.
  • Once dough starts to form a ball in the middle, remove from mixing bowl and place in a clean bowl, covered with a towel.
  • Let dough rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  • Dump dough onto counter that you've sprayed with cooking spray to avoid sticking to the counter. Also, spray your rolling pin (and your hands if you are going to touch the dough.
  • Do not add more flour. The dough shouldn't stick to any surface with the cooking spray. Roll out until the dough is about 11 X 17 inch rectangle.
  • Taking a pizza wheel, cut 1 1/2-2 inch slices, and one slice down the middle.
    Step by step instructions for making classic homemade dinner rolls
  • Roll each slice and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, seam side down. You should get 20 rolls. Or 16 if you threw away the scraps to make a nice rectangle.
  • Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place. Should be ready when rolls have risen to touch each other.
