Buttery Bread Machine Rolls

My husband makes great homemade yeast rolls, but if time is short, these are quick and delicious! From start to finish, it takes about 2 hours 15 minutes total (1 1/2 of that is in the bread machine and 15 minutes for baking). This recipe is from Recipezaar and it's become a standard in my household.

**I usually only bake off 12 rolls in a round pie or cake and then freeze the other 12 in a disposable pie pan. Just take out of freezer and thaw completely, let rise and then bake.

Buttery Bread Machine Rolls

1 cup warm milk (70 to 80 degrees F.)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (if using salted butter, use 1/2-1 tsp salt in recipe)
1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 cups bread flour (I use half AP flour and half whole wheat flour)
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

In bread machine pan, put all ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer.

Select dough setting.

When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface.

Divide dough into 24 portions.

Shape dough into balls.

Place in a greased 13 inch by 9 inch baking pan.

Cover and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes.

Bake at 375 degrees for 13-16 minutes or until golden brown.
