Does being able to make pretty dinner rolls in about an hour make you happy? Me too.
This awesome One Hour Dinner Rolls recipe comes from my sisters friend Cindy. Cindy put the recipe in their churches cookbook a few years back and my sister has been making them ever since.
I recently adopted the recipe too, and I love making them look like clovers to fancy them up a bit.
However,truth be told, if you go the “form them into clover rolls” route, It’s going to take you more like 70 or 75 minutes to make this recipe. Forming all the little dough balls for the clover shapes takes a little extra love and time.
But seriously 75 minutes to make delicious beautiful rolls…I’m not complaining.
The texture is fabulous, just the way I like my rolls, soft, yet slightly dense, with a nice bite to it.
Don’t freak out about how sticky the dough looks before it rises, it’s supposed to.
The extra yeast in this recipe helps the dough rise quickly and surprisingly doesn’t add a strong yeasty flavor like I thought it would. These rolls are delicious and turn out great. They are perfect for fancy holiday meals like Thanksgiving or Christmas or they also go perfectly with everyday soups and stews.
You can’t go wrong with these One Hour Dinner rolls, everyone will love them.
- 2 tbsp yeast
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1¼ cup warm water
- ½ cup melted butter or margarine
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 4½ c. flour
- Cimbine yeast, sugar, salt and water in large bowl. Put aside to dissolve.
- Add flour, eggs and melted margarine. Stir together until there are no lumps.
- Do not knead. Cover and let rise until doubled in size. (you can speed this process by putting covered bowl in a slightly warm oven...turn it on to it's lowest setting while you mix the dough and then turn it off and place the covered bowl in the oven for 15-20 minutes)
- Punch dough down, you may need to add a little more flour if dough is sticky.
- Form into rolls (My sister likes to make her rolls look like clovers by making three small balls and placing them in a well greased muffin tin) and place on a greased pan or in a greased muffin tin if making clovers.
- Let rise while oven preheats to 425 degrees (about 5-10 minutes)
- Bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes
