Are you celebrating? If you are, what are your plans?

One Hour Dinner Rolls #dinnerolls #bread #tableforsevenblog

We are at home this year and having dinner with all the trimmings..turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. We keep it pretty traditional.

New to our Thanksgiving menu this year are these dinner rolls

After spotting them over at my blogging friend Gina’s site, then, here, then, here, they seemed like a perfect, homemade roll to try.

I mean, come one! Homemade rolls in an hour? Why not?

These rolls are a dream. Soft, fluffy and lots of buttery love. They are also great because they freeze well. Make a few, freeze a few, whatever works. Just warm them up a bit in the microwave or oven when your are ready.

Add One Hour Dinner Rolls to your holiday menu or just to your everyday weekday dinner. They are perfect with just about any dish!

Happy Thanksgiving!

First thank you very much for the recipe, these were great. Just one thing I'd mention though, you have salt in the ingredient list, but not in the instructions. I just assumed this was supposed to be added in step two.

Made these last night. They turned out light and fluffy and a shiny golden brown on top. I used an egg white and milk wash on top before baking. They were beautiful I cooked the full 15 minutes. I will be making these on Thanksgiving. Thank you so much for this recipe.

Made these today. I cut the recipe in 1/2 for a trial run and they came out perfect. Nice and fluffy! My KitchenAid made it even easier.. I used an egg white and milk wash and the sheen was beautiful. Thanks for the recipe. I will be making these for Thanksgiving.
