Sweet Dinner Rolls

I have made this roll recipe about a million times. I was in charge of all the rolls for Thanksgiving and made them for my Christmas plates. This is my favorite roll recipe. I got it from all recipes.
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened


  1. Place water, milk, egg, 1/3 cup butter, sugar, salt, flour and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough/Knead and First Rise Cycle; press Start. If you do not have a bread machine and want to make more then one batch then combine your water( make sure it is at the right temperature), sugar and yeast into a separate bowl while you mix the other ingredients together. Cover and let yeast dissolve. Then add the yeast mixture. Let raise until double (about 45 mins)
  2. When cycle finishes, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. Roll each half into a 12 inch circle, spread 1/4 cup softened butter over entire round. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Roll wedges starting at wide end; roll gently but tightly. Place point side down on ungreased cookie sheet. Cover with clean kitchen towel and put in a warm place, let rise 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden.
The nice thing about doing it in the bread machine is that it mixes it and it raises on the cycle but it is easily doable with out one. If I want to double or make more then one batch I use my kitchen aid. These are kinda like Brittnees butterhorn rolls but requires much less butter and milk.
