Homemade Dinner Rolls

There is nothing like having dinner rolls made from scratch…  It feels like a special treat every time I make these!  They have become a thing of the past with everyone’s high paced over booked daily schedules…  But there is no compare from store bought, frozen or pre-package tubes rolls.

These may take some time to make … But I like to think of it as passing on the “Love” through dinner rolls 🙂  I typically make these rolls during the family get together’s or holidays (this recipes yields about 3 dozen)

Try these out the next time you have a big get together… Or cut down the recipe and surprise your family with a little extra dinner roll “LOVE”  😀

  1. Could I get these all ready minus the baking and keep them in the fridge overnight and bake fresh for Christmas dinner?
