  • Cover and let dough rise in warm place until doubled, about 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease 12 muffin cups.

  • Punch down dough. Spoon dough into 12 greased muffin cups, filling each half full. Let rise until batter reaches tops of cups, or about 20 minutes.

  • Bake in a preheated 400 degree F(200 degrees C) for 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

Editor's Note:

To make rolls ahead of time, mix dough as directed in Step 1. Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover with greased plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. About an hour before you're ready to bake, remove from refrigerator. Turn dough onto well-floured surface, divide into 12 portions, and place into greased muffin cups. Let rise at room temperature 30 to 45 minutes. Bake as directed.

Could not be any easier. I usually use about half whole wheat flour and the other half unbleached all purpose and leave out the onion powder for a tasty all purpose roll. I love to make these earlier in the day put in a storage bowl and pop into the fridge. About 30-45 mins. before dinner I muffin-tin the dough and after it rises bake and get hot rolls on the table just in time. Read More

These were great! My kids loved them! I think that the person who made the "too complicated" remark must not have too much experience in baking raised yeast doughs because this one was so quick easy simple and GOOD! Read More

These were very good and so easy to make. Most breads don't work well here because of our altitude but these turned out great. Next time I may try using garlic instead of onion or maybe even a little parm. cheese. Read More

I used 1 tsp garlic powder instead of onion powder. These rolls turned out so soft and very easy. We couldn't finish them all at dinner so I wrapped the rest in aluminum foil and they were soft the next day too. Read More
