Fresh Dill Dinner Rolls

I wanted to try out a dinner roll recipe before Thanksgiving to make sure it is one I would like to make for our dinner.

These go together quickly and taste DELICIOUS! They are soft and flaky and Dillon and I have already taste tested them!



These are the ingredients I used.


I began by letting the yeast activate in the bowl of my stand mixer with the water and 1 tsp. of the white sugar.

To the bowl I added the remaining sugar, milk, egg, butter, fresh dill and salt and mixed until just blended on low speed.


When that was blended, I added 2 cups of flour and mixed that in.


It looked like this.


With the mixer running and my dough hook I added the remaining flour gradually and let it run, kneading, until I had a smooth, still slightly sticky dough.


I put the dough ball into a greased bowl and let it rise for about 20 minutes.


After 20 minutes, I removed from bowl, punched it down and cut it into 12 (fairly) even pieces.


I rolled the pieces into balls, tucking end underneath and placed them in a prepared 9 x 13 pan.


And let them rise for another 45 minutes, until doubled in size.


I brushed the tops with beaten egg,


And baked them at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Don’t they look delicious? I almost burned my mouth because I couldn’t wait until they cooled to try one!!!
