Scoop-and-Bake Dinner Rolls
These batter-style dinner rolls rise quickly, and you never have to get your hands-or counter-dirty when making them.
Why This Recipe Works
After all the time spent on the Thanksgiving turkey, sides, and dessert, the last thing we want to do is make homemade dinner rolls. We wondered if there was a way to avoid all that mixing, kneading, rising, shaping, and baking—without resorting to a can of rolls. The ingredients for our Scoop-and-Bake Dinner Rolls recipe are stirred together, briefly allowed to rise in the same bowl, and scooped into a muffin tin without ever touching the counter—or your hands. The quick rise doesn’t give yeast time to mellow—the richness of butter helps temper the strong yeasty flavor. Beating the batter with a whisk gives our dinner rolls an extra lift, making them tall and light.
