Simple Pull-apart Dinner Rolls

I'm not a gourmet cook, so I picked a basic recipe for the From-The-Hearth link share. 

These are easy to make, yummy dinner rolls. My sister Jane told me how simple they were to make and gave me the recipe. Lately I've been making a batch every week and we have them with our dinner for 2 or 3 nights in a row. They go great with pot roast, soups, or chicken - really with anything.

Simple Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls

1 cup milk, warm to help activate yeast
1 stick butter, softened
2 eggs
1/2 cup white sugar                         
4 cups flour (white or wheat)
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp yeast

#1.  Put all ingredients together in a bread-maker and run the "dough" cycle, which will include about an hour of time for the dough to rise. You can also mix ingredients by hand and then knead dough for 20 minutes, then let it rise for 1 1/2 hrs.
#2.  Knead dough again, adding a little flour so it doesn't stick to the counter top or your hands.
#3.  Form little balls of dough, about 3/4" round. Then drop 3 balls together into each section of a standard size cupcake tin. Let rise for another 1 1/2 hrs.
#4.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes. I usually turn the oven to broil for the last minute to give the top of the rolls that nice "browned" look, but you don't have to.



  1. Those look good Mary. My boys would love them!

  2. Wow, those look super simple to make! I'll have to try them soon, thanks!!

  3. Mary your picture looks so scrumptious. I got the recipe from Joan a couple years ago.

  4. Beautiful rolls, Mary--I'm inspired. Homemade bread gets more raving fans than just about anything...a lot of bang for the buck. BTW, Do you grease the muffin pan?

  5. Yes, I use pan spray the muffin tins, and I also turn the oven to rboil for the last minute of baking, to give the top of the rolls that pretty "browned" look.
