These rolls are my go-to dinner roll. They are so simple to make as long as you have a bread machine. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can either mix all the ingredients, knead and let the dough rise in the bread machine, take them out and form them how you want OR you can let the machine do everything including bake the bread. I usually do what my mom always did, let the machine do everything except the baking. After the timer goes off the bread machine telling me the kneading/rising process is finished, I take chunks from the dough and form them into round balls and throw them in a greased 9 inch circular pan. I usually do that the night before and throw them in the fridge. The day I want to serve them I take them out of the fridge and let them rise for 45 minutes to an hour and then bake them. You do what you want!
