Soft No-Knead Dinner Rolls
Really nice dinner rolls that are easy to make and good to eat. Brush rolls with melted butter when they come out of the oven.
If your yeast doesn't go frothy, sorry to say it's not active so your buns won't rise.
You can use whole or low-fat milk. Scalding hot milk and hot water kills the yeast. I heat milk for 45 seconds on high in the microwave, and use warm tap water. It should be neither too hot nor too cold when you touch.
