Quick Dinner Rolls – Recipe

I know – this is not a picture of the dinner rolls, but isn’t this a beautiful combination anyway?  See the entry here for the photograph of the rolls.


QUICK YEAST DINNER ROLLS – 400° for 15 – 20 minutes

1 pkg. yeast
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt

Beat until smooth.  Then add in

1 egg at room temperature

2 tablespoons very, very soft butter

Then beat in 1-1/4 additional cups of flour.  Scrape bowl, cover and let rise until double – about 60 minutes.

Stir down and spoon into 12 well-greased muffin tins until about 1/2 full.  Let rise to top of tin – about 30 minutes.

Bake at 400° for 15 – 20 minutes.


NB:  Adjust yeast at higher altitudes.  I used about 1.5 teaspoons here at 4500 feet elevation.  (A package holds 2.25 teaspoons of yeast.)

    So what is with recipes and altitude. I am at 900ft so how does this affect the yeast I add?

      I’m pretty sure this factor doesn’t kick in until about 3000 feet. I notice a difference in how long it takes pasta to cook, because our water boils at a lower temperature, too. I guess it has to do with altitude and air pressure relation.
