Mom's Homemade Dinner Rolls

Yield 3 dozen

Note that I mentioned in the video that possibly 3 or even 4 batches of the rolls could fit in the Bosch. I tested it and 3 batches was too much!  So I'd stick with 2 to be safe or maybe 2 1/2 if you want to make a lot, but that will be tight!

1 batch makes 3 dozen rolls (between golf ball and baseball size, you can get 4 dozen if you make them golf ball size, which is fine too) -- these fit into a 9x13 pan plus a square pan.  I usually double it when I'm taking some to friends -- they go really fast!   



Combine water and yeast and let set for a few minutes.  Add the other ingredients and the salt last.  Knead for 2-3 minutes in the Bosch or by hand for 8 minutes or so.  Roll into balls and set into a buttered pan (Mom would roll them in a little more flour, but I've found it's not necessary.)  Let rise, it takes 2-3 hours or so, even less in a warm environment.  Sometimes I'll put them into my oven warming drawer on low to speed this up a bit.  Bake at 400* for 15-20 minutes until nicely golden brown.

Serve with lots of butter of course!
