Dinner Rolls

Emily’s Rating Chris’s Rating
7.5 / 10 7 / 10

Making our own rolls was perhaps a little overly-ambitious, but these turned out pretty delicious. Definitely worth doing in the future, just not if you’re making a ton of other stuff at the same time…


Dish “Best American Dinner Rolls”
Recipe Source Cook’s Illustrated
Difficulty 7 / 10
Time to Complete 2 days?
Sides Served
Leftovers? Yep – Makes 16 rolls
Lessons Learned When you’re making bread, temperatures are VERY important. The butter needs to be at room temperature, the yeast needs to go in when the dough is not too hot, not too cold, etc. These guys tasted delicious, but they definitely were not the proper texture because I did not get the butter warm enough before throwing it in (I believe)
Any Recipe Deviations? I was not able to beat these bad boys for the full amount of time because the dough was so thick that it actually broke (not irreparably) my mixer. So instead, the dough was just a little thicker and less fluffy than it otherwise would have been
Make Again? Yep
Changes Next Time? Let the butter sit out overnight to get to room temperature. Hopefully this solves the problem of making the dough too thick
