Light, fluffy dinner rolls in 90 minutes! Cut down your time in the kitchen and still enjoy amazing dinner rolls with this recipe!
I’m really excited to be posting this recipe. After months of trying this and that to get the results I wanted and then making these several times just to be sure…Ta-Da! Light, fluffy dinner rolls in 90 minutes!!! I wanted to create a recipe I could easily make on a busy weeknight to go with soup and such without having to be home all afternoon. This is also a great recipe for Sunday dinner, and even dinners that are a little fancier like at Thanksgiving and Christmas. So save yourself some time this holiday season and give these delicious rolls a try!
Start by dissolving the yeast and sugar in the warm water in the bowl to a stand mixer (can make these by hand as well). Let stand 5 minutes to get foamy. Mix in the butter, salt and 3 cups of the flour with a dough hook. Once well combined, add the last cup of flour 1/4 cup at a time. You may not need the whole last cup of flour. Just add enough of the flour for the dough to forms a ball, pulls away from the side of the mixer bowl and is only slightly sticky to the touch like pictured above. Knead at a medium speed for 3 minutes (5 minutes if making by hand). Cover the dough and let rise for 20 to 30 minutes. Double should double in size.
Gently punch down the dough and divide in 15 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and place in a 9 x 13 baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Cover at let rise for 20-25 minutes on the top of your stove while the oven preheats to 400 degrees. Dough should once again double in size.
Bake rolls at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Run a small cube of butter over the hot roll tops. Cool for 15 minutes before serving.
