QUICK AND EASY DINNER ROLLS

Quick and Easy Dinner Rolls can be made without a mixer in 30 minutes from start to finish and they are soft, fluffy and delicious! I'll never need another roll recipe again!
Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time30 mins

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups flour divided
  • 2 Tbsp. yeast regular, not fast rising
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup hot water heat room temperature water for 45 seconds in microwave
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup canola or vegetable oil or 1/3 cup melted butter

Instructions

  • Combine 1 1/2 cups flour with yeast; stir together about 30 seconds.
  • Add sugar and salt, mix well.
  • Add hot water and stir to combine, then add the oil and the egg.  Mix completely (until the oil and the egg are no longer visible).
  • Add the remaining 2 cups of flour and mix until the flour is incorporated.  Dough will be sticky.  Lightly coat a clean surface with flour and turn dough onto the flour.  Knead for 1 minute until dough comes together and is no longer so sticky.
  • You can shape the rolls however you prefer - I usually make crescent rolls because it's fast.  To do this, you just roll the dough into a large circle (1/8-1/4 inch thick). Cut the dough into triangles with a pizza cutter and then starting with the larger end of each triangle, roll the dough up.
  • Place on a lightly sprayed cookie sheet, making sure that the tip of the triangle is tucked under the roll.  Let the rolls rise for 15 minutes and then bake them at 425 for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top. I like to brush the rolls with a little bit of melted butter right when they come out of the oven - yummy!

*NOTE: I have actually tried to make these rolls with my mixer before and they don't turn out nearly as well! It sounds strange, but I promise that you will get the best results if you just stir these up with a wooden spoon!
