Made-from-scratch dinner rolls. We had a Finnish exchange student a few years ago, who shared her family recipe for holiday dinner rolls. We love them fresh out of the oven with a little honey or butter on them.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat milk in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave until warmed, about 3 minutes. Add 1/2 cup flour and yeast to warm milk. Let stand until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir carrots, honey, and salt into yeast mixture. Mix flour, about 1/2 cup at a time, into carrot mixture, mixing thoroughly after each addition until a smooth dough forms. Mix butter into dough until thoroughly integrated using your hands. Cover bowl with a damp, clean towel.

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place bowl with dough on top of oven while it preheats until dough has doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

  • Form dough into rolls and arrange on a baking sheet; loosely cover dough with a clean towel or plastic wrap and let rise, 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until rolls are lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes.

These are flavorful and tender. Even my son who hates carrots liked them and a good thing too. I wish I had noted the servings before I made these. For a family dinner I would quarter or even eighth the recipe. Read More

And even with 6 cups of flour the dough I got at the end was still very sticky and hard to shape. The result came out to be ok Read More
