Easy Yeast Dinner Rolls

You need this recipe. Even if you never bake bread, you can make these rolls. They don't require kneading. A quick mix is all that's needed. A word of caution -- don't over bake. (Don't ask me how I know this.)

Easy Yeast Dinner Rolls

1¼ cup water or milk
¼ cup butter
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 pkg dry yeast
1 egg beaten
3½ cups flour

Combine water, butter sugar and salt in small saucepan. Cook stirring constantly until butter melts. Let cool to lukewarm (105º to 115º). Dissolve yeast in mixture. Add egg; mix well. Stir in flour.

Spoon dough into greased muffin pans, filling half full. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85º), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled. Bake at 425º for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown.

P.S. Use a thermometer to check the temperature of the liquid mixture. If it's too hot, it will kill the yeastie-beasties.  If it's nice and cozy warm, they will do their thing and make the rolls nice and fluffy. :-)
