  1. Pour milk into a large mixing bowl, and sprinkle yeast over the surface. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. Beat in the sugar, eggs, 1/2 cup butter, and salt; blend thoroughly. Gradually stir in the flour to make a soft dough. Cover bowl, and set in a warm place until dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.
  2. Punch down the dough, cover the bowl, and allow to rise again. Repeat this step two more times.
  3. Break off 2 to 3 inch size pieces of dough, roll lightly into round shape, and place in prepared baking dish, edges touching. Repeat to make 36 dough balls. Cover and let rise until doubled in size.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  5. Bake rolls in preheated oven until tops turn golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. When rolls are finished baking, drizzle melted butter over the top, and serve warm.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I am 10 years old and I love these rolls!!!!!!!!! If I had to chose ice cream or these rolls, I would diffenitly chose the rolls.

Followed the directions exactly and got nice fluffy, beautiful dinner rolls! Everybody loved them and they made great little sandwich rolls the following day. Watch the quantity though, this r...

These are FANTASTIC!!!! The dough is very sticky, and I did have to use about an extra cup of flour. I used my KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer, and note to those of you who own the same model: th...

very easy! I'm not a bread maker but these turned out much better than store bought. I think I might try a bit more flour next time as one reviewer stated. The dough was very wet. Not so easy ...

The rolls tasted good, but I would bake them in a bigger baking dish next time. I had to throw out 2 of the center ones because they just wouldn't bake and the rest of them were already really b...

I've made these twice. First time I was impatient and let the dough rise only once before shaping into rolls. Second time I replaced half flour with whole wheat flour. Both times they were delic...

These are amazing! A few comments for some of the problems others have mentioned below: If you knead the dough it will get too chewy and will not rise as much. So seriously, mix just like you...

I had these at my mom's house and had to have the recipes. I used my bread machine on the dough cycle and cut the recipe by half (except used 4 C flour) and they were really good. Not quite as...
