Kelly's Dinner Rolls

Recipe: Kelly's Dinner Rolls

Summary: Kelly Corbridge might be the smartest person I know. She can retain and recall everything she’s ever read. It’s very intimidating. She would be completely off-putting if she wasn’t such a talented quilter, chocolate lover, and a little on the ornery side, which I completely respect. She has a wicked sense of humor, won't eat french toast, and has forgotten more about scriptures than I'll ever know. She’s also not too shabby in the kitchen, evidenced by this awesome recipe. Kelly stubbornly refuses to join the Facebook crowd, so she’ll never know of my homage. Can someone tell her, please?

I've never tried to make this recipe without a bread machine.  If you try it in a mixer, let me know how it turns out.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 3 ½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon yeast


  1. Whisk egg in water and pour into bread machine. Cover water with flour, salt, sugar, ¼ cup butter and yeast.
  2. Set bread machine to “Dough” setting. When cycle is complete shape into 12-16 dinner rolls.
  3. Lazy Girl Tip_ Dump dough onto floured surface. Lightly roll the dough to a thickness of 1-1 ½". Use pizza cutter to cut dough into roll sized blobs. Place rolls on cookie sheet.
  4. Melt ¼ cup butter and brush rolls. Allow to rise 1 hour, or until doubled.
  5. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Brush hot rolls with remaining butter.

Kelly’s original recipe doesn’t have salt, or the extra butter. Sorry, Kelly, but it’s good with salt and butter!
