Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large mixer bowl. Heat water, oil and 2 tablespoons butter until very warm (120 to 130 degrees F). Add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 5 to 7 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
  2. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces; shape into balls. Place in a greased 10-inch iron skillet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and brush over rolls.
  3. Bake in preheated 375 degrees F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan; brush with any remaining butter, if desired. Serve warm.

Footnotes

  • Note: Skillet Dinner Rolls may also be baked in a 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet. Baking time may vary depending on type of skillet. Bake as directed, but check rolls for doneness after 13 minutes in oven.

These rolls were oh so yummy and very easy to make! Definitely going to be a regular for me. I love not having to do two rise sessions, just knead, rest, shape, rise once and bake. Easy as 1-2-3...

My mom always made rolls by a recipe from an old Watkins cookbook that I’ve never been able to find. Couldn’t find any to compare with hers so stopped eating them. Tried this recipe and family l...

Love these. I live in a very humid climate so I had to add a touch of extra flour. So easy to make and always gobbled up by my picky eaters!

Absolutely perfect!! Didn't change a thing, and they came out amazing. Perfect consistency, flavor and beautiful to look at. Definitely a keeper!

They turned out perfect in the 12" cast iron pan.
